How to use the Border Essential Dies

Instructions: My card is 6 X 6". Make card base and using one of the Fleur Border Basic Dies, cut out the top decorative edge and then I stamped the butterfly stamp directly under that. Color the butterflies using the Dove Blender Pen and various ink colors. The next step is to use the coordinating die and cut out the butterflies.

I stamped, colored and cut out an additional Butterfly Border and added the Crystal Clear all over the butterfly wings. When the glitter is dry, fussy cut some of the butterflies and glue the bodies down over the bodies on the card front. Once dry, lift up the wings and it looks like they are all flying around.

I used one of the edge dies from the die set and cut a piece of the paper collection to fit on the bottom of the card front. Next use the hot glue and glue down the Bling on a String to the top and bottom of the butterflies.

Cut a length of the white seam binding and spray with water. Lay down some ink on the craft mat or a piece of wax paper and then drag the seam binding through the color. Scrunch and allow to dry. Once dry, tie a bow and using Scor-Tape and glue, adhere it to the front of the card. Cut out one of the tags from the paper collection and using dimensional tape, adhere it to the front of the card.
