Let's get crafting!


Step 1: Gather all the supplies to make the basic card base .

Step 2: Cut 8 pattern papers 6 inches by 6 inches from the Butterfly Dreams Paper Collection for the front and back of the four pages from the Layered Card.

Place the card insert over the piece of patterned paper and draw around the aperture with a pencil using the layered large circle basics die. Do this for all the card pages and diecut them with the circle dies.

Top Tip: Cut two pieces of the pattern paper at the same time with the same size circle centre. One for the front of the page and one for the back of the page. Make sure to have the papers the right way around that you want them on the page!

Step 3: Adhere the card papers to the card base. Attach the card panel with the smallest circle first to the spine of the card and finish with the largest circle card panel on the top. Next adhere the papers at the back and front of the card panels, according to the size of the circles so each page is covered.

Top Tip: Cover the back of the card also with pattern paper, cut another piece of paper 6" x 6" for this.

Step 4: Using the Large and small Layered circle dies, Cut out circle frames from the patterned paper and adhere to the circle windows matching them with the coordinating frames. On the top panel, add the scalloped circle frame die cut.

Step 5: To cover the spine of the card, Cut a piece of patterned paper 3"x 6" and attach the sweet dreams border die cut on both the edges. Adhere this to the spine.

Step 6: Cut out several corner die cuts in white card stock from the Regal Pocket and Accents die set and use them to decorate the inside and front of the card.

Step 7: Stamp several flowers on the deluxe flower shaping paper from the Small Sweet Peony cling set with Vibrant Fuschia. Colour with the same ink. Stamp the leaves in Library Green and colour with Leaf Green. Cut with matching die and shape them. You can see a video here on how to shape these flowers:

Layer the flowers and add Go Man Go prills in the centre. Use the flowers to decorate the front and inside of the card pages.

Step 8: Stamp some butterflies from the Fluttering Butterflies cling stamp set on white card stock with black ink. Colour with Zig markers. Cut with matching die. Add to inside pages.

Step 9: Cut tags from the paper collection using the Ornamental Tags Die, adhere to thin ribbon and hang from the spine.
