Designer Tip: Use a light touch when painting in tight areas of the stamped images with Smooch inks. The brush has a firm point that will cover tiny spaces easily.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. 1) Trim the card to a 5" square. With the card fold at the left, cover the card front with lavender textured paper. Ink the edges black. Cut a 4 ¼"x4 ¾" rectangle from light blue textured paper with striped border at the bottom. Ink the edges and glue centered to the card front.
  2. 2) Stamp the frame image with "Thank You" in the center using black ink on the light blue textured portion of the paper, centered 3/8" from the top of the card. Let dry.
  3. 3) Stamp the swirl image on the lavender textured paper at each side of the card front, turning the swirl each time to create a border using black ink. Let dry. Stamp the butterfly image angled to the lower left of the frame.
  4. 4) Paint in the outer edge of the frame with grape soda Smooch ink. Paint in the dots in the scalloped border with frosted aqua Smooch. Paint in the swirls and flower centers with frosted aqua Smooch, then paint in the small circle at the center of the swirls with cherry chocolate. Paint in the butterfly on the frame with grape soda near the center, then cherry chocolate in the outer spaces as shown. Paint in the remaining butterfly with frosted aqua at the center, then cherry chocolate in the remaining outer spaces.
  5. 5) Embellish by adding Flower Dazzles to the frame and stamped side borders, then add a tiny purple Jewel Dazzles at the center of each Flower Dazzle. Zot ribbon to the card front as shown.
  6. 6) Inside the card: Cut a 4"x4 ½" rectangle from light blue textured paper with the striped border at the bottom. Write or computer print "For everything" centered on the light blue part of the rectangle, 1 ¼" from the top. Ink the edges black.
  7. 7) Stamp frame image centered on the light blue textured portion of the rectangle with black ink, so "For everything" is inside the frame, with room for the butterfly as well. Stamp the butterfly angled inside the frame, near the left.
  8. 8) Paint in the innermost border of the frame with grape soda Smooch, and the next border outside it with frosted aqua. Paint in some swirls with grape soda ink. Paint in the butterfly with frosted aqua near the center, then finish with cherry chocolate ink near the outside as shown.
  9. 9) Glue knotted ribbon across the rectangle above the border, trimming edges evenly. Add Flower Dazzles and Jewel Dazzles as shown. Glue the rectangle centered to the inside.
