2.  Stamp butterflies with Radiant Neon inks on to a piece of white card stock. Cut stamped panel to 5.5 x 2.5 inches. Mat with black card stock and adhere to base card.

3. Stamp sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx ink in desired location. (I cheated and filled in the extension of the “e” onto the main panel of card front with a black marker).
