let your dreams butterfly card

This pretty purple butterfly card is the perfect way to let someone know you're thinking of them!
Step 1

Using the paper trimmer, cut the floral paper down to 4½" x 6" [11.4 cm x 15.2 cm] and adhere to the middle of the card.

Step 2

Cut purple cardstock down to 3¼" x 3¼" [8.3 cm x 8.3 cm], then cut complementary floral paper to 3" x 3" [7.6 cm x 7.6 cm] and adhere it to the middle of the purple. Attach to the card, about 1" [2.5 cm] from the top and middle, side to side, using foam squares.

Step 3

Cut a piece of purple cardstock to 1½" x 2¾" [3.8 cm x 7 cm], then cut a complementary floral paper to 1¼" x 2½" [3.1 cm x 6.35 cm]. Adhere the floral paper to the purple cardstock. Set aside.

Step 4

On a piece of white cardstock, stamp three butterflies using black archival ink. Let the ink dry, then fill the butterflies in using the alcohol markers. Cut out the butterflies using detail scissors. Set aside.

Step 5

Stamp the sentiment onto the rectangular piece of cardstock using embossing ink. Sprinkle on white embossing powder, then tap off the excess. Heat the image using the heat tool until the ink is raised and glossy.

Step 6

Attach the sentiment piece and the butterflies to the card using foam squares to raise the images.
