Unless otherwise noted, SNAIL Adhesive used to adhere everything.

1. Score 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card stock at 4-1/4"; fold away from scoreline to create card. Adhere 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" Marina Mist card stock to front of card.

2. Place small amount of Dotto on back of 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" cardstock and adhere about 1/4" inch from top of 5" x 3-3/4" Naturals White card stock. Place between two acrylic pads and roll through Big Shot on top of Sizzix Base to create raised frame on front of card.

3. Use Paper Cutter or cutting pad and Craft Knife to cut 3" x 3" square out of front of card within raised frame. Stamp Butterfly image on square using Marina Mist and Pacific Punch (ink stamp with Marina Mist first, and then before stamping, roll edges of stamp on Pacific Point Stampin' Pad). Cut out butterfly and set aside.

4. Use Big Shot and Lattice Die to cut shape from 4" x 4" Naturals White card stock. Adhere to back of 3" x 3" opening with a Mini Glue dot in each corner of die shape. Apply SNAIL Adhesive to back around edges of lattice shape and adhere Designer Series Paper so design shows through lattice. Apply to front of card over Marina Mist card stock.

5. Cut another Lattice shape from Old Olive (you only need a small amount for this one -- not the entire shape -- because you're only going use two of the "leaf" shapes). Distress edges of two leaves with Old Olive ink; curl the shapes with a Bone Folder (similar to curling ribbon with a pair of scissors), and adhere to upper corner of card with Mini Glue Dots.

6. Use Big Shot and Fusion Flowers Sizzlit to cut flower shapes from Marina Mist card stock. Distress the edges of the flowers with Marina Mist ink, and curl petals with Bone Folder. Layer the three flowers with the largest on the bottom, and use Paper Piercing Tool and Foam Pad from Mat Pack to punch a hole through the center of all three layers. Insert Rhinestone Brad and open prongs on the back. Adhere to front of card over leaves with Mini Glue Dots.

7. Use Pacific Point ink to stamp words on 2-7/8" x 1-1/8" Naturals White card stock and adhere to 3" x 1-1/4" Marina Mist card stock. Adhere near bottom of card.

8. Use bone folder to curl wings on butterfly and adhere to card with two Mini Glue Dots in the center of the butterfly. Adhere a row of Pearls or Rhinestones down center of butterfly.
