The sentiment is stamped onto white cardstock using Victorian Velvet Distress ink. I then cut/embossed it using Spellbinders Lacey Circle die and before removing it, I airbrushed it with Copic R85 – Rose Red. I then used a Krylon Silver Leafing pen around the edges. The next panel is stamped with the new Round Floral Frame stamp using Victorian Velvet ink. The corners were embellished by punching with the Martha Stewart Swirling Lace corner punch. That is mounted onto the Rose Red card front (4-1/2” square) and rhinestones added to each corner. The sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape. To finish it off, I added the bow at the top of the card.
Stamps used: Round Floral Frame 558, Worthwhile Ride Text 232 SO

The butterfly is stamped using Distress Vintage Photo ink and clear embossed. Shimmer was added to the wings with AtYou pen and dazzling diamonds glitter was added to the body. The sentiment is also stamped and embossed in the same way before being cut/embossed using a Spellbinders Labels Eleven die. The embossed rim was colored with a Copic marker. The papers are by Kaiser Scrapbook. I added ribbon which has the edges colored with the same Copic marker and some trim added to the bottom of the card.
