Steps:

  1. Score the 8.2 x 6 inch sand-colored cardstock in half to create a card sized 4.1 x 6 inches.
  2. Cut a piece sized 5.4 x 3.6 inches from the black sugar paper. With the fold at the left, position and glue it to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.

  4. Trace and cut the butterfly and the picket fence from the white sugar paper, and glue these to the front of the card.
  5. Glue the paper flowers to the bottom of the picket fence, and add one rhinestone bead to the centre of each flower.
  6. Use the Pilot silver marker pen to add some detail to the butterflys wings.

  8. Trace and cut the butterfly from the black sugar paper. Cut out the inside of the butterfly's wings, so that you will be left with only a skeleton of the black butterfly.
  9. Glue the butterfly skeleton on top of the white butterfly. Do not glue it down completely ~ only affix the black butterflys body to the body of the first. The wings must be loose and be able to move.
  10. Use the Pilot silver marker pen to add the butterfly's antennae.
