Instructions: My finished card size is 5 1/2 x 7 1/2”. To make card base, use a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11” cardstock and cut at 5 1/2". Score one piece at 1" and fold. Add glue to this scored flap and glue the other piece of cardstock to it. Now cut off the 1" off overhang so that both pieces are the same. Cover the card base with a piece of the paper. I used sheet 9B for this.
Using white cardstock cut out the Regal Lattice Gateway Die and glue it to the card front and set aside while you work on the other elements of the card.
Stamp the flower petals onto Art Foam Paper using Sky blue and stamp the leaves using Fern Green ink. Set aside and allow to dry. It takes quite a while, so be patient. I actually let mine dry overnight. Using coordinating dies cut out the flower and the leaves. Using the Stack and Store Daubers add pink peony ink to the petals and then edge the petals with more Sky Blue ink. I added Leaf Green to the leaves and then edged them with more Fern Green. Using the heat bun and a pick to hold the petals, warm the petals until they begin to curl. I used a sponge and dries clear adhesive to add the Frosting Powder to the leaves and flower petals. Form the flower using hot glue and then adhere to card front with the hot glue as well.
Stamp the little butterflies with white ink and emboss with white embossing powder. Color using Pink Peony and Danube Blue inks. Glue them across the top of the card. They are so delicate, and I just love them fluttering there!
Now cut a piece of white seam binding and color using Stormy Sky Distress ink. Scrunch and allow to dry. Tie a bow and adhere to the card front. I used Scor-Tape and Dries Clear Adhesive to adhere the bow.
