1. Card: Using a Score Pal and scoring bone (or ink free pen and ruler) score card front from the top of the card at 3 1/2 and 4 1/2.
2. Using a Cuttlebug die cut/embossing machine and the Swiss Dot embossing folder -emboss the top of the card leaving a 1 inch (non-embossed space for butterfly border stamp). From the bottom of the card (front) emboss the bottom end of the card with the Swiss Dot folder. www.stamptv.com Gives a video example of this embossing technique.
3. Oval Frame: Using small scalloped oval nestabilities die cut purple scalloped background. Do the same for the non-scalloped oval.
4. Using the Violet ink pad and appropriate stamps - Stamp the butterfly border on the Card Front and the Mother's Day greeting on the non-scalloped oval. Adhere the ovals together using double sided tape, adhere completed ovals to the card front using double sided foam pop dots.
5. Bow: after forming a bow, adhere bow above the oval frame with Beacon's glue
Comment: I use my computer and printer to type a greeting on colored or white paper, cut the size of the paper (insert) to fit inside the card adhering it to the card with double sided tape.
The ink in your printer is acid free and can also be used for scrapbook journals.
