Lodell's Tips: Using foam tape to raise the flower pot and butterflies adds a lot of dimension and interest to the card!

  1. Front of the Card: Place card with the fold on the left. Cover with lavender paper, leaving a small space on each side to insert and glue red ribbon. Back Dazzles™ frame with solid lavender cardstock and dark purple paper and cut around the edge. Glue to 4" x 3 1/2" green paper.
  2. Use corner Chomper on the corners of the green paper and mat with purple paper, then white. Foam tape to the card, 1/2" from the top. Back butterflies with paper and glue to the card, gently pulling wings up for added dimension. Back flowers and pot with paper and foam tape to the card.
  3. Cut red strip 2 1/4" x 5/8" and place "Bloom" on paper. Cut a "V" in the left side for a banner shape. Curl strip with fingers and apply glue to two places, leaving the center slightly raised. Add flower and butterfly Dazzles™. Use glue stick and Zots™ adhesive dots to great a ruffled look with the red ribbon. Glue ends of the ribbon between the card and lavender paper. Cut a slit on the fold for the lavender ribbon. Thread through the slit and around the card and tie a bow.
  4. Inside the Card: Back rectangle frame with purple paper and cut out inside. Glue to the lower left corner of the card. Back Dazzles™ flowers with red paper and pot with green and glue to the card in the center of the frame. Add small butterfly.
