Butterfly Garden Love

The background on this card is dry embossed and then colored with markers. It does take patience and time, but I think it is worth it. Don't you?


Stamps: Four Frames, Good Greetings
Paper: Pink Pirouette A-2, 2" Sq., Very Vanilla 5 x 4, Melon Mambo 4 x 1 1/2, 2" Sq. (The 2" squares are for the butterfly embossilites.
Ink: Melon Mambo, Early Espresso
Markers: Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Soft Sky, Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz
Techniques: Sponging, Dry Embossing
Accessories: Small Oval Punch, Decorative Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embossilites, Floral Garden Embossing Folder, Sponge, Glue Dots, Pearls, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Adhesive


I first cut all of my paper to the sizes I needed.

I then embossed the Beautiful Wings (butterflies) in both Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo. 

Next, I embossed my Very Vanilla card stock and took my time coloring it with my markers. You have to take care to only color the raised portion of the embossing. I used the small tip of the marker to have more control, but you can use the brush side if you can hold it horizontally to the paper. 

I then stamped and cut out my sentiment using the Decorative Punch and the Small Oval Punch. 

I sponged the edges with Melon Mambo. 

Then I assembled the card. 

The Very Vanilla was adhered with glue onto the Pink Pirouette card. 

I then attached the sentiment on the top left of the card. 

I used both Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo butterflies randomly on the card using glue dots. 

Lastly, I attached the pearls and rhinestones. 

Please note that any floral background embossing folder will work for this card. You can even use a regular floral background stamp, just color the stamp, breathe on it, and then stamp it on the Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiment can also be changed to suit your needs. 

Have fun! Feel free contact me with any questions you may have. Thanks for looking and reading.
