- Cover the card with black cardstock and place with the fold at the top. Cut a 6 3/8" teal/red/purple/black/ivory collage paper and ink the edges with VersaMark and sprinkle with gold embossing powder. Heat to melt. Add mini prills randomly over the embossed areas and sprinkle a little more embossing powder near them. Heat to melt the embossing powder and set the mini prills. Glue centered on the card.
- Use the large and medium butterfly shadow dies and your die cutting machine to cut a black butterfly shadow from each. Cut a medium and small butterfly from green textured paper remaining from the collage sheet. Stamp a butterfly image on each black butterfly shadow with VersaMark ink and emboss gold. Use the VersaMark pen to add ink on the body of each green butterfly die cut and emboss the body gold. Add aqua net prills on each body and heat to set. Lightly fold the wings together on each butterfly. Layer them together with foam tape as shown and foam tape on the card.
- Stamp "Birthday Wishes" on black cardstock with VersaMark ink and emboss it gold. Trim around the edges and foam tape on the left side of the card as shown. Use 3/4" wide aqua crepe ribbon to tie a bow. Trim the tails in a "V" and Zot in place as shown.
