How to Make the Embossed Butterfly

  • Stamp the Butterfly image on a white piece of card stock using a Clear Embossing Ink Pad
  • Sprinkle the stamped image with Embossing Powder and then tap the paper to remove the access
  • Use a heat gun and slowly heat the paper and the Embossing Powder will melt and join together creating this awesome Embossed image – be careful not to burn the paper or your fingers!

  • After the Embossing Powder dries and cools (just a couple of minutes) cut around the embossed image with a pair of sharp scissors
  • I added some rhinestone to the body of the butterfly to make it sparkle and pop just a bit more

How to Make the Birthday Greeting Tag

  • Stamp the Happy Birthday greeting onto a white piece of card stock
  • Using a Label punch cut a piece out of a matching colored card stock, and cut the greeting out with the same punch
  • Cut the colored label in half and trim inwards a bit so it won’t show on the sides. You only want the ends to show – glue
  • When you turn it over you have a perfectly framed tag

Assembling the Handmade Card

When all of the elements are done you start assembling the card

I made this card for a friend of mine at work and I knew everyone on our team would be signing the card so it needed to have lots of space to sign.

To solve that problem I glued a second card to the inside cover of the card so know there is twice as much signing space!

The embossed butterfly is really my favorite element of this card and I love how simple embossing is. It adds so much to the look of the card.
