1Trace around the card tem­plate onto a

white card blank and cut out. Trace the but­ter­fly tem­plate onto white card. Cut out and cover with pink rose pa­per. Mount on top of the card base, as shown.

Cut the but­ter­fly tem­plate from 2

turquoise bro­cade pa­per. Scale the tem­plate down a lit­tle and cut from the cen­tre to cre­ate a frame. Glue the frame onto ac­etate and trim around the edge.

Add foam tape be­hind the frame 3

and sprin­kle se­quins into the aper­ture. Glue onto the card base.

To cre­ate the an­ten­nae, coil two 4

lengths of bead­ing wire. Se­cure a pink bead at one end of each. Glue them to the cen­tre of the but­ter­fly. Place large gold gems down the cen­tre.

Layer a die- cut sen­ti­ment onto 5

green pa­per and place in the cen­tre of the but­ter­fly. Add gems, to fin­ish.
