1- Choose three ink colors that go well together. I used Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, Bumblebee for one card and Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, & Bumblebee for the other. Stamp the Large & Small Butterfly image in all colors. Then clean the stamp and flip it over so you stamp with the solid back. Ink up the back in the same colors, but before stamping over the coordinating image, stamp off twice, then stamp over the butterfly image. Fussy cut out.

2- Stamp the Scattered Dots image in Pool Party ink down the center of the 3 ¾” x 5” piece of Pool Party Cardstock. Add this to the front of the cardbase.

3- Add the butterflies down the center of the card with glue dots. Leave a space in the center for the greeting.

4- Stamp your choice of greeting in Blackberry Bliss on the 1 ½” circle. You can mix and match your words by inking up just the word you want from a larger greeting and stamping it on the circle.

5- Add adhesive to the back of the greeting and fold the ribbon in half, adhere to the back. Then add to the center of the card with dimensionals. Place three Artistry Blooms Sequins around the card.

All Done!

  1. How clever to think of using the back of the stamp for giving the butterfly a more cohesive look! I really enjoyed watching your demo! Thank you!
