Butterflies and Flowers Layering Masks - Sympathy Card

Here are my instructions on how I made this card:

Stamp Set:  Peaceful Moments

Ink:  Rich Razzleberry

Other:  Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks, Masking Tape or Packaging Tape, Blending Brush, Multipurpose Liquid Glue

3.    The third layer is Very Vanilla cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 5”.

4.    Cover the butterfly mask with package tape exposing only the butterfly.  Layer one of the other mask over the butterfly and tape it down so it doesn’t move.

5.    Begin inking up the Blending Brush with Rich Razzleberry ink and blend design into the butterfly.

6.    Add the sentiment of choice from the Peaceful Moments stamp set or the Special Moments SAB set with Rich Razzleberry ink.
