6. Use the Sweet Plum inkpad to apply ink to an open flower image and stamp directly onto paper and over some of the Goosebumps Texture Spray images. Use a dry paper towel to remove the ink on the images. The flowers will then look as if they are now behind the Texture Spray images.

10. Adhere the tag to chipboard then Apply Raisen's 3/8" Adhesive Squares and add to the background papers. This will give the tag a little "lift" off of the background for added dimension. Adhere a photo next to the tag and machine stitch around the outside edges.

Instructions:

1. Cut a 5 x 7 card front from gray cardstock. Use the Staz-On Opaque Cotton White to ink a large designed stamp - I used a floral pattern. Stamp the gray cardstock several times. Re-ink the stamp each time before stamping. 

2. Once this is dry, spray the Bamboo Leaves Fireworks! Craft Ink over the surface – 2 or 3 sprays should do it and let dry.

3. To finish the background of the card, spray the Goosebumps Clear Texture. 

Note: I found that adding the Fireworks! and Goosebumps sprays to the background made the Cotton White Opaque Ink images stand out even more.

4. Next, spray the green pattern paper with Bamboo and the type print pattern paper with Rhubarb then let dry. 
5. Stamp butterfly images with Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto the type print pattern paper and cut out with a craft knife. Cut a large scalloped circle from the green pattern paper.

6. Cut a pattern paper strip a little wider than the card and use the Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac Adhesive to apply it across the center of the card. Also apply the Perma Tac to a circle cut to fit inside the larger scalloped green circle.

7. Use a large piece of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam on the back of the scalloped circle and apply it near the left side of the card, as shown. I also applied a smaller piece of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of a sticker (with the card sentiment) that I adhered near the bottom left of the circle.
8. Apply Raise ‘Ns to the back of the cut out butterflies and adhere them near the top and bottom of the circle.

9. Add additional details to complete the card: rub-ons and more stamped butterfly images using Jet Black Staz-On Ink at a diagonal from the bottom left up towards the top right.
