Friends are Forever Card

Trim an ivory or white cardstock to 8" x 11", then fold it in half to create a side-folded card base.

Cover the front with a 4" x 5.5" aqua flower patterned paper.

Corner-round the upper and lower right corners.

Adhere a 1" x 5.5" pink floral patterned strip to the left edge of the card.

Temporarily adhere the 2 butterfly punched shapes vertically on the upper portion of the card as shown, only placing adhesive on the centers of the butterflies.

Machine-stitch vertically down the card from top to bottom, going over only the centers of the butterfly shapes.  Lift the wings upwards to create dimension.  Add tiny rhinestones of the tops of each butterfly as shown.

On a 1" x 4" green cardstock strip, stamp the "friends are forever" sentiment with black ink.  Cut a V-notch on one short end, then add it to the bottom of the card, slightly hanging over the right edge as shown, using foam adhesive.

Wrap a piece of baker's twine vertically around the card and tie a pretty bow.
