GLITTER Scallop Clear Cards


I absolutely love the Sonoma Paper. I wanted to showcase as much as I could of it so I decided to use the clear cards we carry.


First stamp your image for the front of the card.


Next I drew for the butterfly's moment. I then poked the holes for the stitching.


I sewed the card in a straight stitch.


Then you'll want to distress all your paper. I used the smokey plum.


Remove the clear protector from both the front and the back of the Clear Card


I adhered the 1st piece to the very back of the card.


On the inside I added the lower piece and the Zipstrip trim.


I added the matting for the front to the INSIDE of the front of the card. I was careful to place the dots more towards the middle so they would not be seen when I added the top piece.


Lastly I added the top piece and some ricrac ribbon.


To create the butterflies I mixed pearl paint with re-inker.


Next I painted the butterflies and sprinkled with prisma glitter immediately. I then let them dry completely. I shook off the excess glitter once I knew they were dry.



While the butterflies were drying I added glitz glue to the edges of the card by painting it on thin.


I added the butterflies with foam tape just in the center of the butterfly then completed it with 4 pearls of various sizes.
