Bone folder, heat gun, antistatic pad, white card for stamping and die cutting, White Linen Card, Versacolor white Pigment Ink, White Embossing Powder, Distress Ink Broken China, Versafine Ink Smokey Grey, turquoise blue rhinestone any brand.


I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first.  TIP:  Use an antistatic pad to wipe your vellum and cardstock first before stamping, it creates a static free environment so that only your stamped image is embossed.  When using a heat gun, don’t get too close to your cardstock or it will get a brown tinge.
Using the Butterfly Kisses stamp set, stamp the butterfly on white cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun.  I have colored this image using Broken China.  Using the Sweet as Honey stamp set, stamp the honeycomb pattern twice across the card, once with the flowers facing up in the left corner and once down with the flowers in the bottom right corner on white cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun.  I have lightly colored over this image using Broken China.
Using shades of blue from your Sweet as Honey paper pad, die cut 5 hexagons 3 lighter and 2 darker. Work out where your wish your hexagons to line up and using your Butterfly Kisses sentiment stamp, stamp along the bottom of your card, note that you want your bottom hexagon to sit in the first curve.


Cut your card base using the white cardstock 11” x 6 1/4”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish.   Using a blue Patterned cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad, cut your front mat 6” x 5 1/4”.
  
Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your front blue mat to your card front. Adhere your white card front. First adhere your bottom darker color hexagon in the curve of the sentiment. Using 3d adhesive adhere the 3 center hexagons. Adhere your last darker blue hexagon flat on top of the middle hexagons. Adhere your butterfly with only glue down the center so you can fold up the wings. Adhere a blue rhinestone on the top section of the butterfly.
Happy Crafting
