Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5.31" x 7.283" (13.5cm x 18.5cm). To make the butterfly: Taking the vellum paper, clear embossing powder, versa-mark, heat it tool and the stamp for the butterfly in the "Fluttering Butterfly " stamp and die sets Stamp and die cut x 3 of the image onto the vellum paper. Once you have die cut the butterfly, fussy cut the layers using the lines in the butterfly as a guide for this. Making sure you leave the butterfly body on the butterfly for adhering together later. Taking the daubers, archival inks, Coffee, Vibrant Fuchsia and Leaf Green apply color to the back of the embossing to each layer. To adhere the butterfly together, use the hot glue gun as anything you use will show through the vellum Adhere all layer from the body then bend the wings up a little, apply the glue from the hot glue gun on a area with the embossing lines. Apply enough so the wing will stay away from the under layer. Patience is needed as you need to hold this in place until the glue cools and is set. Add more glue if needed for the height. Repeat this for all layers so you get a 3d butterfly.

To make the flowers: Taking the foam paper, chosen StazOn ink color, stamp and cut with matching die. Prepare the flowers and leaves. Look at the video to see how the foam paper is used and shaped. Use the Crop-A-Dile or a hole piercer to make the holes in the petal centers ready for the stamens. Use the hot glue gun to secure the stamens in place. If your flowers are not perfect, don't worry they will look perfect once they are clustered on the card.

To make the card embellishments: Taking the white card-stock again cut the sentiment card from the 'Eyelet Rectangle and Basics' die set, the smallest sized eyelet die x 1. Apply to the edges of the eyelet frame clear embossing powder. Die cut the small swirl frames from the 'Intricate Swirl Frames' die set x 2. The sentiment 'Thank You' is found in the "Butterfly Kisses Decorative die" set. Cut x 5 from the card-stock plus x 1 from the design paper. Adhere the sentiment together using clear drying glue then apply clear embossing powder. Two applications were used here.

To make the card: Taking the white card-stock make a tent fold card base to measure 5.31" x 7.283" (13.5cm x 18.5cm) Taking the paper collection for the Butterfly Kisses collection, find the paper with the light blue/green background with the butterfly border on it. Using the two largest sized dies from the 'Eyelet Rectangle and Basics' die collection and the design paper cut the two mattings needed for this card. Taking the smallest matting design paper rectangle, the Nuvo mousse, spatula and the mask apply the medium to the paper. Taking the water brush or water mister apply water to the paper edges of both matting papers, the paper will curl up. To help the corners to curl more, by rolling gently upwards with your fingers. Put aside to air dry. Once the matting papers are dry, adhere all the frames to the card front with 3d foam tape/dots or a layer of craft foam to give height to the layers. Look to the card photo for placement. Arrange and adhere the flowers and leaves using the hot glue gun on and around the frames. Once this is done the Thank You can be adhered to the eyelet frame with clear drying glue.
