Lodell's Tips: Apply dark colored glitters first, and then light to avoid dark pieces mixing with the light. Use dry soft paint brush to remove excess glitter.

  1. Cut card to 5" x 5" and position with the fold on the left. Score the front flap at 2 1/2" and fold in half for a tri-fold card. Cut blue paper to 5" x 2 1/2" and glue to the front flap of the card. Sponge distress ink around edges. Cut striped paper to 5" x 5" and glue to the inside of the card. Sponge distress ink around edges.
  2. Place body of large butterfly on brown paper. Cover with cinnamon fun flock and shake off excess. Place wing outlines on each side of the body and apply pink glitter. Press glitter down with finger to make sure surface is covered. Shake off excess. Repeat this process for each color, only applying one color at a time and shaking off excess after each application. Cut around the butterfly. Place smaller butterflies on the card and apply glitter, one color at a time. Fold the wings up on the large butterfly and glue the body and one antenna to the front flap of the card.
  3. Tie white sheer ribbon around the inside flap of the card, positioning the bow at the bottom. Glue blue glitter to blue brads and let dry. Cut white paper to 3" x 1/2". Insert one end at a time into the smallest tag punch to create scalloped ends. Stamp greeting with Berrylicious ink and ink around edges of the label. Insert brads and glue to the bottom of the front flap of the card. Add small butterfly Dazzle™ to the label and apply glitter. Shake off excess.
