Tip: When ironing the fibers into a sheet of fabric, the more heat applied the crunchier the fabric will become. A crunchy texture is desired when punching images from the fabric.
- Place the card fold at the left. Cover the top 2 ½” of the card with striped paper and the bottom portion with dark blue. Glue a 3 ¾” x 4” rectangle of bronze glimmer, centered on the card, ¾” from the top. Glue a brown dot border cut out across the center of the rectangle, covering the seam on the background papers. Apply copper StazOn® ink around the card edges.
- DicroFiber™ background: Create an approximate 4 ½” square sheet of fabric by using copper and gold fibers. Press between parchment and add torn pieces of Gold Glidenglitz. Press again. Cut the fabric into a 3 ½” x 3 3/4” rectangle. Pull some of the fibers on the cut edge to give a frayed appearance.
- Press dark blue DicroFiber™ between the pressing parchment to create a small sheet of fabric. Punch butterflies and dragonflies from the fabric. Press the bugs onto the upper left and lower right, of the background, while between the pressing parchment.
- Apply copper StazOn® to a small and medium paper flower. Layer and secure to the bottom left corner of the DicroFiber™ fabric using a mini brad. Glue the fabric to the center of the glimmer paper. Roll a scrap of the blue fabric into a ¼” wide ball and glue to the center of the flower, over the brad. Press one end of a small tuft of gold DicroFibers™ and glue to extend from under the flower. Stamp a greeting at the bottom of the card front using copper StazOn® ink. Glue more bugs around the card front.
- Inside the card: Stamp the remaining greeting onto dark blue paper, backed by a strip of striped paper layered over glimmer paper. Glue to the inside back and glue a punched butterfly to the right.
