 Therese’s pretty butterflies have us ready to be in the garden. How about you?

To create her card, Therese followed these steps:

  1. On a card panel, Therese 1st and 2nd generation stamped the leaf image from Twirls  using various hues of green ink.
  2. On Bristol paper, she stamped the butterfly twice from Belle Fleurs.  She colored the butterflies with watercolor pencils and then fussy cut.
  3. Therese then cut an orange piece of cardstock to frame her card panel as well as a larger piece of patterned paper to complement the colors of the butterflies.
  4. The patterned paper was attached to the card base.  She attached the orange cardstock to her white card panel.
  5. On a vellum strip, Therese embossed a sentiment from Kind Words  using gold embossing powder.  She wrapped it around her card panel and attached it with tape on the back.  She then adhered the card panel to the card base with dimensional foam.
  6. Finally Therese adhered the butterflies to the card.
