Layered, Dry-embossing

To create this card: Cut 4 squares of designer paper, ink the edges and adhere to a larger piece of square card-stock. Then ink the edges of that square, and adhere to a piece that will frame it. Wrap a piece of lace ribbon around and tie in front. Select an embossing mat, and run the layers through your embossing machine. Finally adhere the embossed square to a mat you create using a Martha Stewart Punch. Adhere the lace-edged square to a square card. (Note: As far as dimensions go for this card, I based it off the ivory lace edging I created from the Martha Steward punches. You need to create that piece first and work from there, because the dimensions are specific in order to line up corners and sides correctly.)

Butterfly: Stamp butterfly image, then cut or punch out. Punch or cut out 2 more of the same shape in card-stock of your choice. Sponge ink on edges as desired. knot two pieces of twine and adhere to back of butterfly head of the piece to be used on the top. Apply adhesive to center body area. While that dries, apply Stickles to image to add sparkle as desired. Allow to dry. Adhere to card, and roll up top 2 layers of wings to give dimension.

Well thank you for stopping by and happy summer!
