Butterfly Ensemble in the Hovering Butterfly Frame
by Jean Okimoto


Vellum butterflies from the Butterfly Ensemble flutter over the Hovering Butterfly Frame as we look forward to some sunshine this week.  Hi there, Jean Okimoto here, let's get started on this colorful card...


Dry-emboss Hovering Butterfly Frame on textured white cardstock following your machine manufacturer's instructions.  Leave the cardstock in the die to use it as a stencil.  Daub Brilliance Lightning Black onto the embossed areas and heat-set the ink.  Trim it to 5.25" x 4" and round the corners.  

Prep the center of it with the embossing powder tool.  Stamp Kindness of People with VersaMark and emboss it with detail gold powder.  

Cut the butterflies from green,  purple and turquoise vellum with the Butterfly Ensemble dies.  Attach Scor-Tape behind gold mirror cardstock and cut the two antennae from the Butterfly Wreath set and four from the Fairyland Butterflies set.   The self-adhesive antennae attaches the butterflies to the background too.  One less thing to do...6 times!

Attach the cardstock to a top-folded 5.5" square card of smooth white cardstock.  Add purple opalescent sequins.


 A quick switch of greetings turns this versatile design into a thank you, birthday, anniversary  or graduation card. Vellum comes in so many pretty colors - diecut your favorites and have a bunch of these cards ready for any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by...see you at the Tukwila Impress for the Best of Seattle cards class on Sunday!
