Designer Tip: The bright colors of the Shrink Film make a colorful card.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Card front: Place a blank card with the fold on your left. Cover with Paper Painting multi-color floral paper. Glue a 4 7/8”x6 3/8” Paper Painting yellow dot paper centered.
  2. Place a Dazzles™ border at the top and bottom of the Paper Painting yellow dot paper. Place a Dazzles™ swirl on the top right corner. Back a flower with a leaf Dazzles™ with Paper Painting red and green paper. Cut close to the Dazzles™ edge. Foam tape on the bottom left corner.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in StazOn ink just above the flower.
  4. Ink a large butterfly with StazOn ink, and stamp on the green Shrink Film. Let dry, and cut close to the stamped edge. Stamp a large or medium butterfly on each of the colors of Shrink Film. Let Dry, and cut close to the Dazzles™ edge. Start with one butterfly, and place on a cutting board, or a piece of cardboard. (the heat tool can damage a furniture’s finish) Wave the heat tool over the piece. It will begin to shrink and curl. If two parts stick, gently pull apart, and keep heating. Just before turning the heat off, place the acrylic block on top to flatten. On some of the butterflies, you can re-heat, and pull the wings up just a bit as if it was flying. It will harden in this position. Zot the butterflies all over the card front, as shown.
