Kodak HTML EmailBrown Bazzil cardstock cut to measure 21.5cm x 14cm, scored and folded to create a card base.

Silhouette machine was used to cut the Butterfly (sized to fit the card) in Bazzil pink cardstock, which was then blended with Distress inks in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Brushed Corduroy to get the desired effect, adding and blending until you are pleased with the end result.

Next a piece of white cardstock measuring approximately 11cm x 5cm was stamped with Hero Arts Antique background stamp and embossed with clear embossing powder, this was then blended with distress inks, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and edges with Brushed Corduroy to give a tone on tone look.  A small strip on pink cardboard was then glued with Herma repositional glue tape runner to the centre of the antique background cardstock to create an accent.

A small piece of white cardstock was cut to make a tag which was stamped using Hero Arts Clear Designs Stamp Set Everyday Sayings, using "just saying hello" stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
The edges are blended with distress ink Antique Linen to add dimension to the tag, bling from Kaisercraft was then added.

These pieces were all then attatched to the Bazzil brown card base & hessian cord added to finish off.
