Glimmer Butterfly Card

We made this Glimmer Butterfly card at my February Stamp Class.  I saw This Card with the debossed areas in the embossing folder watercolored.  It was beautiful!  However, she is much more patient than I am so I came up with this card which is pretty quick and easy.

This video is about 12.5 minutes long.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Choose your Designer Series Paper and coordinating card stock.
2.  Cut your card base in the desired color at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch this video for more details on making card bases.
3.  Cut the desired pattern of Designer Series Paper at 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach to card front leaving about 1/2″ of card stock showing at the bottom edge.
4.  Stamp your Flowers and Sentiment in the desired colors.  Punch with the coordinating punches.
5.  Cut a 1/4″ piece of card stock in the same color as your card base.  Run through an embossing folder.  OR you can use coordinating Ribbon.
6.  You now have all the pieces ready to make your card.  Lay everything out in the desired positions.  Attach the 1/4″ embossed strip with Tombow Glue.  Attach the sentiment with Dimensionals.  Attach the small flower to the sentiment with 1/2 a Dimensional on the end of the sentiment punch.  Attach the large flower with a whole Dimensional in the center back of the Flower.
7.  If you use a darker card stock, you might want to put a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White card stock in the center of the card so the receiver will be able to easily read what you write to them.  🙂
8.  You can emboss your envelope flap with the embossing folder you used, if desired.  Here is a Video to show you how.

Happy Card Making!
