1 Create an A5 card blank from an A4 sheet of Centura Pearl cardstock. Ink the edges of a 5½ x 8” panel of patterned paper and adhere to the card front.
2 Emboss a piece of Centura Pearl with Filigree Frame folder and trim around the embossed edge. Cut out the oval with a craft knife.
3 Mark the position of the oval on the card front and cut out to create an aperture. Wrap the embossed panel with ribbon, securing with a bow, and affix to the card front using 3D foam tape.
4 Adhere the oval cutout on the inside of the card, so it can be seen through the aperture. Die-cut the Oval 3D Butterfly from white cardstock and one Flit and Flutter butterflies from purple cardstock.
5 Fit the purple butterfly behind the die-cut panel with the wings raised. Glitter the top wings and add gems to the centre of the body and small gems to the flower centres before mounting onto the paper oval.
6 Die-cut the leaves and flowers from patterned paper, shape and add to the bottom left of the oval aperture. Glue small daisy and gems to the flower centres and affix a sentiment topper as shown to finish.
