How to make it:
Cut a piece of blue floral patterned paper slightly smaller than the pink square card and stick centrally. Ink the edges of the card in creamy brown chalk ink.
Cut a piece of stripy paper the same length as the floral paper and about 4cm wide. Stick horizontally towards the bottom of the card.
Draw a dot/ dashed pink line on the edges of the stripy section. Draw a zig-zag faux-stitched line around the edge of the floral paper in pink pen.
Pop out the floral bouquet die cut and adhere to the bottom left of the card. Trim away excess at the edges and ink the edges again.
Layer a ‘Best Wishes’ die cut greeting on the stripy paper with 3D foam dots. Decorate the frame with pink adhesive stones.
Pop out a large pink, medium sized green and small blue butterfly. Arrange in position on your card and lightly draw around these in pencil. Remove the butterflies and decorate the wings with pink, blue and silver adhesive stones. Open the card and cut around the pencil guidelines removing the butterfly wings, but most importantly NOT removing the body! This should remain as a line of card through the cut out wings! Gently erase any pencil lines.
With the die cut shapes, bend the butterfly wings towards you and attach the body of each to the card with 3D foam. Ensure the butterfly is aligned with the cut out wings.
As the butterflies wings are cut out behind, ensure when you write inside the card that this cannot be seen through these holes from the front!
Decorate the top left of the card with a row of three adhesive gem stones.
