Cut tangerine tango cardstock in half,  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and fold in half to form a card

Cut Venetian Romance DSP 4 x 5 1/4  and layer on front panel of card

Cut another piece of Tangerine Tango 2 7/8 x3 1/8, for focal  image base

Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock 2 3/4 x 4″, stamp the tulip stamp from the blessed Easter stamp set onto the left side of the focal panel. Then stamp your sentiment.

cut some 1/4″ ribbon to 9″ and fold in half

Layer the folded ribbon leaving the tails showing and glue it under the 2 3/4 very vanilla focal image piece.  Attach the ribbon and focal image on top of the tangerine tango cardstock focal image base

Next stamp on scrap very vanilla cards stock 2 tulip images in stazon black, color them using tangerine tango classic ink and the daffodil delight ink for highlights. You can us the blender pen to give it a water color effect by taking the blender pen and dip it into the ink pad lid ( use a closed ink pad and press down on the lid to transfer ink from the pad to the lid)  or if you have the refills just use a drop on your craft mat and dip the blender pen tip in the ink and color. ( be careful not to over saturate your paper so you don’t cause it to rip)  Use the same technique to color in the stems and leaves with Old Olive classic ink, Cut out the images and set aside.

Now pop up the focal image using the stampin dimensional and add the cut out tulip image on top of the stamped image also using stampin dimensionals

For the inside of the card cut a base card of very vanilla, 4 x 5 1/4, center and glue to card,

at the bottom cut and glue a 4 x 1″ piece of Venitian Romance DSP.

Finally add the other cut out tulip and glue it to the left bottom corner and enjoy.

  • fussy cut out the image,  do not try to cut out the antennas you will re stamp the butterfly after the fussy cut stamp is sculpted.( I left a very small border of white around the butterfly)
  • Turn over the butterfly that was fussy cut and using a 6mm stylus begin to pull towards the center of the wings they will begin to curl .creative element butterfly sculpt 2creative element butterfly sculpt
