    Step 1

    To create this romantic card, you will need the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 6" deco frame and inside frame piece, #D84C and one of the butterflies from D69A and other supplies as listed.

    Step 2

    Finish one side of the two chipboard frame pieces with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Platinum Silver. To make it easier, use a damp baby wipe to rub the mousse on the frames.

    Step 3

    Out of white cardstock, cut one piece 5 7/8" x 5 7/8". Use a ruler and stylus to score wood plank lines. Rub the entire piece with the silver mousse to create a vintage wood background.

    Step 4

    Select a small chipboard butterfly and finish one side with pink embellishment mousse.

    Step 5

    Apply embossing ink and pink embossing powder to the finished side of the butterfly. Hold with tweezers and melt the powder with a heat gun.

    Step 6

    Cut a piece of white cardstock to 6" x 12" and score, fold in half to create a 6" card base. Glue the wood plank background onto the card base.

    Step 7

    Attach the chipboard frames to the front of your card base as shown.

    Step 8

    Glue a small piece of vintage lace to the left side of the card on top of the frames as shown.

    Step 9

    Glue leaves and flowers on top of the lace.

    Step 10

    Tie a bow out of button twine and glue to the flower arrangement. Glue the chipboard butterfly to the top of the flowers as shown.

    Step 11

    Insert a leaf or other decorative stick pin into the arrangement.

    Step 12

    Add pink flat back pearls. Your romantic card is finished. Leave the inside blank for a personal message.
