New Possibilities with the Hovering Butterfly Frame
by Jean Okimoto


The beautiful Hovering Butterfly Frame was just too good to tuck away after just one card...so it's back again this evening.  New possibilities...literally!  Hello there - Jean Okimoto here - with a variation of the previous design.  I love being able to use these great products in different ways - and sharing the ideas with you.

Cut Hovering Butterfly Frame from textured natural cardstock and leave it in the die.  Dry-emboss it using the rubber mat and embossing plate(s) recommended by the manufacturer of your diecut machine. Don't remove it from the die just yet - stencil it with Imagine Crafts Radiant Neons -  Electric Blue, Purple and Green.  Use Imagine Crafts' craft mat - folded in half for extra cushioning when stenciling.   Sorry my inkpads are looking a little scruffy...but these are some hardworkers, and I love the vibrant colors.


Remove the die and clean it with a damp washcloth.  Replace the die and sponge VersaMark over the Radiant Neons.  Remove the die and clean it up again - before we forget that it's been VersaMarked!  Heat-emboss the butterflies with Imagine Crafts Iridescent Embossing Powder for a sparkly shine.

Prep black cardstock with the embossing powder tool, then stamp New Possibilities with VersaMark and emboss it with detail white powder.  Trim it with one of the slightly larger Pinpoint Rectangle Layers, then trim the excess with the inner edge of the die.  Cutting with a paper trimmer works too...but it's easier and more accurate for me to use the dies.

Attach Scor-Tape to black cardstock and cut three of the Darla Butterfly antennae.

Place the frame, at an angle,  on an A-6 (4-⅝" x 6-¼") card of natural textured cardstock and lightly mark the area for the greeting.  Remove the frame, attach the greeting, then attach the frame.  Use bits of foam tape where the wings overlap the greeting.  Attach the antennae.  A lot of attachment.


Thanks for stopping by - join us again tomorrow for Donna's great project!
