How To Guide - Step 1

Place the layering frame die, from the Bonjour Slimline Stamp And Die Collection, on to the blue glitter card, and run it through your die cuttting machine. Put the remaining glitter card aside for later. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Lay the coordinating, solid die plate, from the same set, on to the white A4 card. Cut a piece off, bigger than your die, and set the remaining card aside. 

Run through your die cutting machine. Keep the "waste" that you have die cut this from to assist you with the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Place the die cut back in to the "waste", and place these in your Eureka, securing the "waste" in place, with the magnet. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Place the coordinating stamp in place, on top of the die cut element, as shown in this photo. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up the stamp with the Versafine, and stamp it in place. 

You can now carefully remove the stamped die cut element from the "waste" card. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Use your watercolour paints to paint the images, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Once the paint is dry, mat this on to the glitter card decorative mat.

Set this to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the small floral stamp, from the same set, with the Versafine. 

Using your completed stamped topper as a guide, stamp it in position, on the front of your card blank, so the floral image will peek out from behind the right hand side of the topper.

Reink the same stamp, and stamp it just below the first stamped image, so it disappears off the bottom of the card blank.  

How To Guide - Step 9

Paint with your watercolour paints, as before. 

Set to one side to dry.

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up one of the butterflies, from the same set, with the Versafine, and stamp it on to the white card, set aside earlier. 

Cut it out and put the rest of the white card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Paint your butterfly with the watercolour paints. 

Set to one side to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Glue the topper in place, on the left hand side of your stamped card blank. You can use wet glue, or foam pads to add more dimension. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Shape the wings of the butterfly with your fingers, before gluing it in place on your artwork. 

Set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 14

Having decided on your chosen sentiment, from the same stamp set, place the appropriate sized nesting die, from the Deboss Rectangle Nesting Dies Collection, on to the white card set aside earlier. 

Run this through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Ink up the sentiment, with the Versafine, and stamp on to the die cut white mat. 

How To Guide - Step 16

Glue this on to the blue glitter card, set aside earlier, and cut around the sentiment, to create a blue mat. 

How To Guide - Step 17

To finish your card, adhere your sentiment in place, with foam pads.
