Embossed Butterfly

Mauve 8 1/2" X 11"  cut to measure 4 1/4" X 11"  (scored and folded at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4")
Cream 3 1/4" X 3 1/4"Deep Purple  2 1/2" X 2 1/2"

Martha Steward's Around the Corner Scalloped Punch set         
Versa Embossing stamp pad
Marthra Steward Butterfly stamp set
Black Embossing Powder and Marvy Embossing Heat Tool
Small round brush 
Finishing accents - Rhinestones
Ranger Crystal Stickles (Glitter Glue)
1.Fold both ends of scored Mauve Cardstock toward center of 4 1/4 X 11 strip to form a tri-fold
2.Punch the corners of cream cardstock using the scalloped corner punch complete the scalloped frame using the border scalloped punch.
3.Stamp several butterflies onto deep Purple cardstock, emboss with black embossing powder and heat set with tool. Using a fine round brush dipped in bleach, paint bleach inside the embossed butterflies.  (As the bleach dries the cardstock will fade to near colorless.)  Embellish butterflies with rhinestones or stickles
4. Adhere deep purple embossed design to the cream scalloped frame using double sided tape. Adhere this to the left folded side of the Mauve cardstock.
5.  You can stamp a greeting, add a bow or leave the right folded side plain. (Use your creativity)
Stamp or write a greeting inside the card.  I usually insert a greeting printed or written on white computer paper and adhered to cardstock with double sided tape.
