• Dragonflies and Butterflies (1)

    Here are the instructions for the card we made in the workshops this week using Sentimentally Yours papers and stamps and Sue Wilson dies.

    Main materials:

    Card blank 8x8in

    White card

    Heat embossable acteate

    ‘Sentimentally Yours’ Graceful Butterflies & Dragonflies paper pad

    Stamps – ‘Sentimentally Yours’ Flourish Butterflies & Dragonflies, Dragonfly Retreat Background, Circle Frame & Flourish

    Dies – ‘Sue Wilson French Collection’ Provence & Corner, Border and Tag

    Cosmic Shimmer Ink Spray Mist

    Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder

    Spray an A4 piece of white card with the ink spray mist and leave to dry

    Trim the patterned paper to 18cm x 18cm

    Stamp a butterfly and dragonfly onto the acetate with embossing ink, cover with embossing powder and set with a heat gun. Carefully cut around the embossed images and bend the wings upwards.

    Stamp the dragonfly background onto a piece of white card with embossing ink, cover with embossing powder and heat set. Cut a strip 3cm x 12cm, then cut in half again.

    Using the 2nd largest Provence die, die cut the centre piece from white card. Stamp and emboss the circle frame and flourish in the centre and a partial butterfly and dragonfly in opposite corners.

    Taking the ink-misted card, cut a piece 19cm x 19cm. From the centre of this piece, die cut a layer using the largest Provence die. From the remaining card die cut 2 French Collection corners.

    Assemble the card as shown. Attach the acetate butterfly and dragonfly using Cosmic Shimmer glue down the centre of the bodies so that a 3D effect is created with the wings.
