How To Guide - Step 1

Place the decorative frame panel die, from the Romantic Rose Stamp And Die Collection, on to one half of the blue shimmer card, leaving enough card for a second one to be cut. 

Run through your die cutting machine.

Die cut your second frame, from the other half of the card. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place ONE of the die cut frames on to your score board, and score a line approx 2cm from the top of one of the ends, as shown here.  

Use your bone folder to get a good fold along the score line. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Add red liner tape above the score line, on the reverse side, as shown in this photo. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Peel off the backing from the tape, line up the 2 frames, and carefully adhere together, to create your decorative card blank. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the coordinating panel die, on to one side of the 6 x 6" white card. 

Run through your die cutting machine, keeping the "waste" card for the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Cut off a small strip of the white "waste" card, and put aside for you to stamp 2 small butterflies on, in a later step. 

Pop the "waste" card back in your Eureka and place your die cut panel back inside the gap, securing the "waste card" in place with your magnet, as shown.  

How To Guide - Step 7

Line up the stamp in position, on top of the die cut panel, as shown in this photo. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the coordinating stamp, with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp on to the die cut panel. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Apply a little of the Mimosa, Olive Drab and Avalanche Izink Pigments, on to a craft or glass mat. 

Adding a little water, paint your stamped image. You can mix the Avalanche with the other 2 colours, to create lighter shades and, once all the Pigments are dry, you can use it to add accents and highlights to your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the sentiment stamp from the same set, with the Versafine, and stamp in the centre panel of your artwork. 

Set this to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Ink up a couple of the butterflies, from the Bonjour Slimline Stamp And Die Collection, with the Versafine, and stamp on to the white card you set aside earlier. 

Cut them out. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Use the Mimosa and Ultramarine Izink Pigments, to paint your butterflies. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Once the Pigments are dry, mould the butterfly wings with your fingers to give them shape, then adhere where required, on to your finished artwork.
