  1. Cut the base card stock 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" and fold on the side.
  2. Tape the Three Butterflies Stencil over brown card stock with removable tape.  Use a tape strip all the way across the top of the stencil that will act as a hinge later.  Then tape both of the sides and bottom.
  3. Use the palette knife to remove the Regular Embossing Paste from the container and place on the paste spreader.  Place a strip of paste on the spreader that is as wide as the butterflies image.
  4. Set the paste spreader on the stop of the stencil and pull it towards you, maintaining contact with the stencil, and filling in all the wells.
  5. Carefully remove the tape from the bottom and sides of the stencil.
  6. Using the top tape as a hinge, lift the bottom of the butterflies stencil carefully up and then away from the project.  Let dry completely.
  7. Use the Versamarker on the leaves and pour on the Emerald Embossing Powder, heating it to create a smooth shiny look.
  8. Use the Versamarker on the edges of the butterflies and apply Detail Black Embossing Powder.  Heat it with your embossing gun.
  9. Use the white glue on the butterflies to apply the Tiger Lily Glitter.
  10. Squeeze the black Amplify onto the center of the butterflies to create the bodies, and the purple Amplify on the flowers.
  11. Heat the Amplify with the embossing heat gun until it puffs up.
  12. Assemble the card, including the ric rack.
  13. Attach the buttons onto the card with the Glue Dots.
