OTHER PRODUCTS USED:
Hot glue Gun, Water Mister, Scissors, Ruler , Double sided Tape, Misti, Organza ribbon, White embossing powder, Versa-mark, Silver Wow glitter embossing powder, Forest moss, Broken China distress inks.

INSTRUCTIONS:
*The finished size of this card is  12cm x 15cm
 *Taking the white card stock cut to 30cm x 15cm. (if you are using A4 card stock, you can cut it 15cm across x the length of the card stock)
 *Make folds in the card at 6.5cm and 18.5cm. When folded, the 6.5cm fold will be your fold up to make the pocket for the gift voucher or gifting money. The remaining folds will form the card base and the front envelope flap.
 *Taking an extra piece of white card stock, place the border die and cut to fit the card front flap. Adhere to the flap edge, trimming away any unwanted length.
 *Find the pale blue paper from the Festive Holly collection and trim a little smaller to fit the inside and outside of the card except the back of the card. This is left blank. Adhere the papers in place. (you could use other paper collections for the  background as long as it will not take away from the embellishments)
 *Make the flowers by using the stamps, dies and mold. The flowers are stamped with the glitter embossing powder and the leaves are stamped using the black archival ink. Bring color to all using the distress inks. Bring shape to all by using the mold and flower shaping tools.
 *The white embossed butterfly has three layers. Two are made using the white card stock and the top layer is made using the vellum also white embossed. Only the bottom layer has the swirls, the swirls of the second and top layer are trimmed away. Curl the wings to give shape with your fingers and adhere with the hot glue gun at the body of the butterfly.
 *Arrange and adhere the leaves and flowers along the die cut border line not forgetting to leave place for the ribbon closing and room for the butterfly embellishment. (ribbon length approx.  50-60cm) *Fill any empty spaces with extra leaves and flowers.
*To finish, tie the ribbon ends in a bow to close the card.
