Butterfly Silhouette Cards

From the same wedding as the butterfly bouquet, these give me a great idea for something other than actual place setters.
She used a decorative rubber stamp (with smooth outer edge), ink pads, 3" x 6" card, bone folder, straightedge, and craft knife. She inked the stamp, pressed it to the paper so most of the design extends above the halfway point of the card. Once the ink was dry, she used a fine-tipped craft knife to cut around the design above the halfway point. Then she used the straightedge to score the card across the middle, between the two long sides, around the butterfly; this marked the fold line and gave a clean, neat fold on the bone folder.
