How to make:

To start with work out what sizes you want your layers to be, for example we used a card that is 15cm x 21cm when folded, the first layer at 13cm x 19cm and then the top layer at 10cm x 16cm. when you have all your measurements cut out each layer and attach the first layer to the card with your double-sided tape.

Next, it’s time to make your design on your white card. First using the flower stencil ink the flowers onto the corners with the cloud ink. The best way to do this is place your card over a matt or scrap paper and position the stencil over the card and then use the masking tape to hold it in place. Use your sponge to blend the ink over the stencil (be careful where you go with the ink as you don’t want to go over more than one flower), think of it as the same movement as polishing your shoes. The ink clouds only need 30 seconds or so to dry.

Next, emboss your butterflies. Again, position your stencil over your card and keep it in place with masking tape. Dab your embossing ink pad over the butterflies that you want until there is even coverage over the area that is going to be embossed (you may find it easier to do one butterfly at a time), pour on your powder, get rid of excess powder and heat until melted. After your butterflies are done use your embossing pen to dot the inside of your flowers and then again emboss them.

To finish the design on the top layer, emboss your sentiment onto the centre of the card. To emboss this time, you will need to take your ink pad to the stamp and dab it all over the stamp until you have even coverage and stamp onto the centre of the card and then repeat as you did before with the powder.

That finishes your design on the top layer and means its time to put it all together and finish your card. Use your double-sided tape around the edge of the white and attach it to the first layer.

And done….
