Instructions: My finished card size is 6" x 6". Make card base using the Flower Shaping Paper and cover with a piece of the paper collection. I chose Page 3B which is a soft purple. Using white cardstock, die cut the stairway die and glue down onto the card front. I chose a colorful piece of the paper collection from page 2A and cut out a square for the center of the stairway die cut.
Stamp the purple flowers from the Floral Butterfly Accents Cling Stamp set with Rich Cocoa ink and color using Majestic Violet and Deep Purple inks. Color the leaves with Leaf Green. Stamp the yellow zinnia flowers with Buttercup ink and color using same. The leafy accents were stamped with Fern Green and then colored with Leaf Green ink. Cut everything out using coordinating dies and set aside. I used the flower shaping tools to shape the petals and glued two of the yellow petals together. Add prills to the centers and when dry add glitter. Dot glue here and there over the purple flowers and the leaves and add glitter there as well.
Stamp all the butterflies with Frost White ink on vellum and emboss using white embossing powder. Cut out using coordinating dies. I colored using various inks on the front side of the butterflies. That is just my preference. You can decide for yourself which side you choose to color.
Decide on placement of butterflies and flowers and glue down. The card is ready to go.
