Butterfly-Card-2 

Designer Notes:

1. To create this beautiful blue background, first stamp the butterflies (7 Gypsies IC0195 Butterflies) with Jasmine and Patina Mix'd Media Ink. Emboss the images with clear embossing powder.

2. Once the embossing is cool to the touch, spray the paper lightly with Splash, River Mossy, and Sea Breeze Smooch Spritz ink.

3. Use a paper towel to wipe the Smooch Spritz from the embossed butterflies. The embossing will resist the ink.

4. Trim the paper to size, and use it to create a card. You could create an entire 12x12 sheet of this "custom" paper, and then cut it up to make multiple projects.
