Fancy Butterfly Blooms

Instructions:

Cut a piece of white card stock measuring 5 1/2 x 8 and score at 7” creating a 1” flap at the top of the card base. Using the largest die from the HCD2-7384 Fancy Classic Rectangle Frame Dies cut through both layers with the top portion of the die hanging over the top fold of the flap. Cut a second piece of white card stock with the same die and adhere it to the back of the hinge creating the back of the top folded shaped card base. Using the same die, cut 2 more pieces, One from sheet 6A and another from piece 11B From the HCDP1-2138 Decorative Dragonfly Paper Collection. Adhere sheet 6A to the front of the card and 11B to the inside of the card. (NOTE: by adding the piece inside the card this will cover the seam where the card base was pieced together making the inside of the card finished. A small piece may need to be trimmed from the top to make it fit perfectly). Next using the second largest die from the same die set cut 2x, once from white card stock and once from Luxe Silver Card Stock. Layer the white on top of the silver and glue together slightly offset so that the silver peeks out from behind the white. Adhere this to the card front. 

Stamp the HCPC-3951 Large Floral Butterfly Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using Versacolor White Embossing ink. Heat emboss with white embossing powder. Using two soft dye based ink colors with blender brushes lightly blend the colors over the heat embossing on the left wing to create a soft blended look. Using the HCD2-7352 Large Butterfly Die set, die cut the butterfly out and fussy cut around the body so that only the body and the left wing remains. Stamp a second body for the butterfly in the same manner and fussy cut the body out. Using Vellum die cut the decorative die from the butterfly set and lightly ink that as well before gluing the body to the body of the butterfly. Cover the glued vellum area with the fussy cut butterfly body. Small glue dots can tack the vellum down to the background and be covered by gems on the butterfly wings if desired. Glue the butterfly to the card front. 

Using the HCFB1-5005 Magnolia Cling Stamp Set, stamp out the medium bloom image two times using French Ultramarine Archival Ink. Also stamp out 5 leaves with Leaf Green Archival Ink. Before die cutting, color using the HCDA1-449 Stack and Store Daubers. Color the centers of the flowers using Viridian Archival Ink and the outer edges with the French Ultramarine ink. Color the leaves with Leaf Green. Die cut with the coordinating dies. Deepen the edges of the flowers with the French Ultramarine ink and the leaves with Leaf Green, before running them in the coordinating 3D Mold. Using the HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit press the centers of each flower and pierce a hole in the center of each before adding the HCS1-457-1 Pastel Pearl Stamens - Small in Green to the centers. Finish both with a dusting of Nida Tanner’s Magic Glitter Powder by adhering it with Dries Clear Glue and a Hydra Sponge.

For background flowers and leaves, stamp the floral stamp from the HCPC-3985 Dragonfly Florals Cling Stamp Set using Olive Archival Ink. Using English Ivy Archival ink stamp the leaves from the HCPC-3912 Cascading Wisteria Cling Stamp Set. Color the flowers in using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and the leaves with Leaf Green ink. Die cut with coordinating dies. Ink the edges of the leaves with English Ivy ink.

Now arrange the flowers and leaves in the bottom right hand corner to complete the card.
