For the centers, cut the stamens from Sunrise Lily Die, paint them using Sunflower yellow archival and Leaf Green archival ink. Roll them between your fingers and add prills using an adhesive that dries clear. Adhere these stamens in the flower centers and press them hard to lift the flower petals. Prick the flower centers and add Black beaded stamen in the center. Cut the wire once the flower center is dry. Prepare 2 flowers using 2 petals and one flower using 3 petals.

For leaves, images from Leafy Accents Cling Stamp Set are stamped with Library Green, cut them using its coordinating die and colored them using Leaf Green and Fern Green. Shape the leaves using its coordinating mold. Once shaped and dried, highlight the leaves using Sunflower ink, very softly.
For the Butterfly, stamp the image on vellum sheet using colorbox white ink and sprinkle white heat embossing powder. Dust extras and heat set it with the help of heat gun. Now cut the image using its coordinating die. Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown and finish the card with a sentiment from the paper collection.
