Leave the plastic to cool. You will find more information about
using Friendly plastic in our Techniques section at "An
introduction to Friendly Plastic
".

Stamp the PSX Swallowtail butterfly on to the black shrink
plastic using a Brilliance pigment ink pad of pearlescent sky
blue. Cut out the butterfly shape with scissors or a craft knife.
Put the shrink plastic on a flat, heatproof surface and heat with
an embossing heat gun to shrink the shape.


Cut a rectangle of pearlescent blue card 90mm x 60mm (3½ in
x 2½ in). Mount this on your greetings card with adhesive
using the illustration as a guide.


Cut a rectangle of linen gold foil card a bit smaller than the
blue rectangle using deckle edge scissors. Mount this on top of
the blue card with adhesive.

Cut a square of black shrink plastic 28mm sq (1 in). Mount this
on your greetings card with adhesive using the illustration as a
guide.

Mount the shrink plastic butterfly card across the top left
corner of the black square with adhesive using the illustration as
a guide.

Cut a square of linen gold foil card a little larger than your
Friendly plastic heart square. Cut a square of pearlescent blue
card a little larger than the linen gold foil card.


Cut three strips of Mizuhiki Cord, the longest about the length
of your greeting card, the next one about 10mm shorter and the
last one 10mm shorter than the second.

Mount the blue square on the greetings card with mini foam pads
using the illustration as a guide.
