  • Cardstock – White
  • Cardstock – Teal
  • Envelope – White


The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

For the other cuts of paper:

Cardstock – Teal:

  • 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • 1-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • 1-1/2″ die cut circle

Cardstock – White:

  • 1-1/8″ die cut circle
  • Banner die cut (middle size)

First, mount the sentiment and ink it with black ink. Stamp toward the left of the white banner, so that there will be enough room to glue the circle die to the end of this banner. Next, stamp the butterfly in the center of the white circle die, in black ink.

On the white cardstock panel stamp the Mini Flower in red ink, clean and stamp again in teal ink, clean and stamp again in gray ink. Stamp the Mini Leaf, rotating the stems towards the flowers, in green ink. Stamp the Tiny Leaf in the same green ink, once again rotating the stems toward the flowers and then stamp the Tiny Flower Group in black ink.

Glue the white banner to the teal cardstock strip. Glue the white circle die cut to the teal circle die cut and then glue that to the end of the banner. Glue the stamped paper to the teal cardstock and then glue the banner compilation to that, then glue to the white card base.

For the envelope, stamp just as you did for the card, in the same colors along the flap of the envelope.
