- Place your card with the fold at the top and cover it with Nature’s Touch brown/green border paper, with green foliage across the bottom. Ink the edges black.
- Cut a 2"x6 1/2" double-sided adhesive and peel off one side of the backing. Place it on white cardstock and trim the edges evenly. Peel off the remaining backing from the adhesive. Place the wide lace centered down the center of the adhesive, being careful not to touch the adhesive (so to not get it dirty). Place the shiny side of the peeled backing onto the lace and press the lace firmly onto the adhesive.
- Sprinkle black microfine glitter onto the lace and adhesive and burnish it into the adhesive with your fingers. Tap off the excess and repeat until no more glitter comes off. Carefully peel off the lace from the adhesive and set it aside. Sprinkle the exposed adhesive with Spring Peridot microfine glitter, burnish, and repeat as before. Mat long sides on hammered gold paper with 1/8” borders. Glue the glitter/lace piece across the card, 1/4” from the top. Glue a 6 1/2" length of 1/4" wide black sheer ribbon even with the bottom edge of the gold matting.
- Ink the embossed surface of the Butterflies Foiled Fancies that you will use with SurfaceZ Black ink. Let dry. Lightly fold the wings of the butterflies together for added dimension. Foam tape the bodies on the card as shown. Place Card Greetings Dazzles™ “thank you” across the bottom right. Tie a black sheer bow and Zot™ as shown.
- Inside: Cut a 5 1/2"x2 3/4” Nature’s Touch brown/green paper and ink the edges black. Glue it even with the bottom of the card. Ink 2 smaller butterflies as you did for the front and glue as shown. Place Dazzles™ “with love” across the bottom left.
