  3. Drag black ink across foil paper. Using Versamark, randomly stamp butterflies from Sharing Sweet Thoughts on top, pour Gold Embossing Powder on top and heat with Heat Tool. Stamp a few more butterflies with Versamark and heat using Silver Embossing Powder. Run through Big Shot using Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.
  4. Tap Versamark onto some of the raised leaves, pour copper embossing Powder on top and heat. Repeat using Silver Embossing Powder (tip: if you get too much powder in one area, just lightly brush off using your finger before you heat).
  5. On small Vanilla piece, stamp I Heart You sentiment from Great Big Greetings using Versamark. Pour Copper Embossing Powder on top and heat. Using sponge and black ink, distress vanilla piece and flag the right end.
  6.  Attach the small Cajun Craze piece on the bottom of vanilla piece and then run several lines of SNAIL across the back. Using the Silver Metallic Thread and Copper Trim, create loops as desired and attach this piece to card front using Dimensionals.
