Supplies

  • Inkadinkado Gem Stone clear stamp set
  • Pattern paper from 6.5 x 4.5 Flower Shower Spring Matstack
  • Solid colored paper from 6.5 x 4.5 Flower Shower Spring Matstack (12 x 12 works too for solid color)
  • White cardstock for base and images.
  • Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranite Ink
  • Clear Glitter Glue

Directions

  1. Stamp butterfly from Gem Stone set on good quality 110lb white cardstock using Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranite Ink.
  2. Cover inner white areas with clear glue (Stickles works but may be too glittery).
  3. Let butterfly dry overnight. Ink will bleed into glitter glue.
  4. Stamp any sentiment you want on white cardstock. Cut out.
  5. Cut 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of white cardstock. Fold in half to form card.
  6. TIP: For a perfect fit don't precut the paper in the next two steps - mount the paper flush on the left and top and trim it with a craft knife. The one side on the top is already 4 1/2". If you are using the small matstacks you should be able to get 2 cards out of each piece of solid and patterned paper using these dimensions.
  7. Cut 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" piece of patterned paper for top. Adhere to card front.
  8. Cut 3 1/4" x 4" deep purple cardtock. Adhere to card front flush with patterned paper so no white shows.
  9. Fussy cut out dried butterfly.
  10. Mount butterfly to card front using flat on the body and dimensional foam tape on the edges of the wings to give an in flight dimensional look.
  11. Using a silver glitter glue, draw a flight path from the bottom of the card to the butterfly's position. Let dry.
  12. Mount sentiment at bottom of card using dimensional tape.
  13. Card can be mailed in a standard business envelope.
