You Will Need:

  • Rinea Ghost Ink
  • Rinea Princess Variety Pack
  • Rinea Peacock Variety Pack
  • Rinea Love Variety Pack
  • Darice Butterflies Die Set
  • Darice Sentiments Die Set
  • Scissors
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Glue
  • Trimmer
  • 6 x 6 white card
  • Wet wipes


  1. Die-cut and emboss Darice butterflies from the Rinea Princess, Peacock and Love Variety paper packs.

  2. Ink over the butterflies with the ghost ink. As you’ve embossed the butterflies, they are raised, and so the ink will only adhere to that part of the butterfly. Leave the ink to dry for about 30 seconds or until the ink changes to the same colour as the paper.

  4. Rub over the ink with a wet wipe to reveal the silver underneath.

  6. Do the same with all the butterflies, and then gently bend the wings to shape them.

  8. Take a 6 x 6 inch card base and cut 2 pieces of the plain double sided Rinea paper slightly smaller than 6 x 6 square.

  10. Stick one of the squares onto the card base.

  12. With the other square cut a slit from the outside centre of the square all the way to the middle and add double sided tape to the back.

  13. rinea-butterfly-split-card
  14. Once stuck, twirl the edges back so you can see the gold and glue the butterflies on.

  16. Add strips of gold and purple paper and die-cut a Darice celebrate design. Adhere to the card with glue to finish.
