Project Instructions

Step 1 Trim a 4½"x6" piece from Melange tissue wrap.

Step 2 Attach tissue at the center of the card using Inkssentials™ collage glue stick.

Step 3 Dab some distress stains around the card. Blend the colors with wet paintbrush. Let dry.

Step 4 Stitch around the tissue block.

Step 5 Cut some frosted film and layer it on a medium butterfly from Melange tissue wrap.

Step 6 Push out any air bubbles by gently rubbing the surface with a bone folder.

Step 7 Cut butterfly out with scissors.

Step 8 Color the butterfly with distress stains on the frosted film surface.

Step 9 When dry, outline the butterfly with a black pen. Set aside.

Step 10 Dab Picket Fence distress paint on the Word Band ‘Know in Your Heart You Are Loved’ and Word Key ‘Love’ so paint gets in the grooves. Wipe off excess paint.

Step 11 Rub Jet Black Archival Inks™ pad across the painted Word Band to create greater contrast.

Step 12 Cut a 6" piece of crinkle ribbon, color it with Spiced Marmalade distress stain. When dry, thread the ribbon through the Word Key.

Step 13 Stitch down the middle of the cut out butterfly from Step 9 near the top of the card. Don’t glue the wings down.

Step 14 Stitch Word Band below the butterfly.

Step 15 Attach Word Key below the Word Band using Inkssentials™ Glossy Accents™.
