Step 1

Mist a piece of smooth white cardstock with Danube Blue Fireworks Shimmer Spray. Lightly mist with water and then dry using a heat gun. Dip repeatedly in between drying to create the splattered look.

Step 5

Use a jumbo dauber and the same Memento Luxe ink to chalk around the edges of the embossed piece. This will highlight the dimension of the beautiful embossing.

Step 6

Use your Fireworks spray to add additional splats onto the embossed piece. Trim the piece smaller to fit onto your 4×6” folded card front.  Trim butterfly from patterned paper, ink the edges in blue Memento Luxe and adhere to your card. Add a sentiment sticker and staple in place.
