Instructions: My card size is 5 1/4 x 7 1/4. Make card base and then cut a piece of blue cardstock 1/4 inch smaller and run it through the embossing folder then use Scor-Tape to adhere it to the card front. Cut out the decorative die from white cardstock and glue it down to the lower portion of the card. I added the half pearls around the outer edge of the die cut.
Stamp the flowers and leaves, cut out and color with various colors of ink to achieve the color you like. Run the rose petals and leaves through the mold to achieve the beautiful shaping. I also used the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to give just a bit more dimension to the petals. Glue the petals together and punch a hole in the center of the flowers and add the stamen then add a drop of hot glue on the underside to hold them in place. Add the Crystal Clear to the edges of the flowers using dries clear adhesive and set aside to dry. Stamp, color and cut out the butterfly. Add some Crystal Clear to the body and set aside to dry. Once dry, I used some Sticky Doos to pop it up from the card front. I then decided on the placement of the flowers and leaves and glued them down using the hot glue gun.
Go back to the paper pack and pick out a decorative ticket and I fussy cut mine. Using the Sticky Doos adhere it to one of the other decorative tags and then adhere it to the top part of the card front. The card is ready to go.

How to use the Border Essential Dies
Instructions: My card is 6 X 6". Make card base and using one of the Fleur Border Basic Dies, cut out the top decorative edge and then I stamped the butterfly stamp directly under that. Color the butterflies using the Dove Blender Pen and various ink colors. The next step is to use the coordinating die and cut out the butterflies.
I stamped, colored and cut out an additional Butterfly Border and added the Crystal Clear all over the butterfly wings. When the glitter is dry, fussy cut some of the butterflies and glue the bodies down over the bodies on the card front. Once dry, lift up the wings and it looks like they are all flying around.
I used one of the edge dies from the die set and cut a piece of the paper collection to fit on the bottom of the card front. Next use the hot glue and glue down the Bling on a String to the top and bottom of the butterflies.
Cut a length of the white seam binding and spray with water. Lay down some ink on the craft mat or a piece of wax paper and then drag the seam binding through the color. Scrunch and allow to dry. Once dry, tie a bow and using Scor-Tape and glue, adhere it to the front of the card. Cut out one of the tags from the paper collection and using dimensional tape, adhere it to the front of the card.

Another new collection! They come along quickly and they keep you busy, but what fun work, and you always make amazing projects. Those butterflies are gorgeous! Love that they're all fanciful and can be colored any which way. Really love how you did the (acetate?) border inset on your second card. The die and the bling -- wow! Two beautiful cards, Glenda!
