  1. Begin with a scalloped base card measuring 5 ¾” x5 ¾” and ink the edges with the Cyan ink.

  1. Cut the floral panel from the paper collection and cut it down to measure 5 ¼” square. Ink the edges with the Cyan ink. Glue or tape the floral panel to the card at an angle.

  2. Cut the circle decorative panel from the paper collection and cut away the outer border. Adhere this to the card at the opposite angle to the floral panel.

  3. Stamp the thistle flower form the Botanical Swirls cling stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto some white card suitable for alcohol pens. Die cut it out using the square die from the Cut Mat Create die set 2B.

  4. Colour the image in with Alcohol pens. This image has been coloured in with the Chameleon pen system using YL2, OL3, YG3,BL3 and BL6 Ink around the image using Cyan and Robin’s Egg ink. Use a glass mat to take off the excess ink before applying the ink to the card so that you do not make it to dark.

  5. Using the square die from the Cut Mat Create die set 2A, die cut a square in pale green card stock. Mat the image onto the pale green die cut square using some foam pads.

  6. Glue or tape the image to the centre of the card.

  7. Wipe some pale green card with either an anti static bag or cloth and stamp the Butterfly Medley stamp with the Versafine ink. Sprinkle with the white embossing powder so that all the butterfly images are covered and tap off the excess. Use a specialist heat tool to melt the powder.

  8. Die cut out the butterflies with the co-ordinating die.

  9. Choose 3 of the butterflies and ink over the wings with a little cyan ink. Wipe with a soft tissue to wipe the excess off of the embossed area which has acted as a resist. Cut the ‘On Your Special Day sentiment from the paper collection and ink with the cyan ink.

  10. Make a triple bow with the seam binding ribbon and add a sparkler to the centre. Glue the butterflies to the image, gluing only along the centre of the bodies so that the wings sit away from the card. Adhere the bow to the top left of the image.

  11. Cut the ‘On Your Special Day’ sentiment from the paper collection and ink the edges with the cyan ink.

    Using foam pads add the sentiment to the bottom right of the card. Add some flat backed cream pearls to the butterflies and 3 on to the bottom left and top right of the card.

  13. Add some Baby Blue Stickles glitter to the butterflies, around the edge of the image and around the sentiment to finish off the card.
