1. Fold a 8 1/4" x 8" piece of ivory cardstock to create a 4 1/8" x 8" side-folding card.
2. Cut red patterned paper 1/8" smaller all around than the card front. Cut another piece slightly smaller than the first and layer together with Herma Dotto adhesive.
3. Wrap a piece of ribbon vertically around the center of the panel, securing the ends on the back. Lightly adhere the completed panel to the front of the card.
4. Make a cup of coffee (to use for painting). Experiment on scrap ivory paper to determine the desired dilution with water—you’re going for the look of vintage paper. Paint the coffee onto a 3" x 5" piece of ivory cardstock and allow to dry before doing the next step.
5. When dry, stamp the sentiment using red ink. Heat set. Trim about 1/16" outside the stamped image. Mat onto a slightly larger piece of ivory cardstock, then onto a slightly larger piece of kraft cardstock. With the sewing machine, stitch together following the outermost border line of the stamped image.
6. Adhere the sentiment panel to the card front in the position shown. Working through the card front, sew a border outside of the sentiment panel. Sew another border just inside the red patterned paper.
7. Stamp 5 butterflies on ivory cardstock using with solvent ink. Paint with blue watercolor crayons. Set aside to dry.
8. Once dry, add the gloss medium to the butterflies. Allow to dry.
9. Fussy-cut the butterflies from the cardstock and adhere to the card with 3D-Dots.
