Pretty Petals Butterflies Card

Chalked Petals Butterfly Card (2)

Scallop Trim 360° Border

Whenever punching all the way around, it takes some flexibility in your
measurements.  Start with at least ½” to
¾” extra cardstock on each side.  

• Always
start in the corner with the Scallop Trim Corner punch first, looking at the
back of the punch and aligning your cardstock just inside the corners of the
punch. TIP: Always continue on in
one direction all the way around.

• Align
your Scallop Trim Border punch with your punched corner (on the front of the
punch), and continue punching that side.

• Then,
using the corner punch upside-down, align the scallops with the first full
scallop. TIP: Your cardstock will
need to slide through your punch past the guides to do this. Make sure the
punch is perpendicular to the edge of the card (in other words, will it be
making a straight right angle?)

• Use the
paper trimmer to cut off the excess on that side. TIP: your trim line should be where the very edge of the corner
punch punched.

• Continue
along that side with Scallop Trim Border punch, then continue around the piece
in the same manner.  TIP: On the last corner, make sure that you are choosing to “turn”
on the correct scallop—does it line up with the first scallop you made?

• Adhere to
Rose Red card front with SNAIL.


Pretty Petals Chalk Board

• Ink the
Pretty Petals stamp with White Craft ink using the brayer.

• Stamp
onto Elegant Eggplant cardstock.  TIP: turn the stamp upside-down and lay
it on the table, covering it with the cardstock, then burnish.  Make sure not to move the cardstock while
burnishing, and lift it straight up off the stamp to avoid smearing.

• Use
cotton swabs to DAB on pastel colors. TIP:
If you rub it on right away, you will smear the ink!

• Once all
of the white ink is fully covered in pastels, you can rub with the swab to
apply more pastel, if desired.  TIP: If you want a white flower, you
must add white pastel to your white ink to avoid smearing.

• When all
of your color is on, use a tissue to rub off all of the excess pastels.  You can use firmer pressure now that your ink
is fully covered.

• Adhere
ribbon to piece with SNAIL and wrap around to back to secure.

• Adhere whole
piece to card front with SNAIL or Dimensionals.



• Select a
color of cardstock to use, place between the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and
place “This side down” onto a cutting pad. 
Place another cutting pad on top, then the whole thing goes on the
Multipurpose Platform opened up to Tab 1. 

• Run
through the Big Shot.  TIP: Push the “sandwich” into the Big
Shot; when you see the handle move, then it’s ready to crank.  If you feel that the “sandwich” is too big to
fit through the machine, STOP!  Check to
make sure that you have one tab opened on the Multipurpose Platform, and two
cutting pads.  If you are using a
CuttleBug machine, the “sandwich” will be different—check your instructions.

• Fold the
butterflies you want to use in half and attach to the card front with Glue Dots
or Dimensionals.
