Double Duty Love with Emerald Creek Supplies Dare Challenge!

Hi everyone! Are you ready for the next challenge on the Emerald Creek Supplies Dare Blog!!!
It is all about Double Duty...
I took it to be a literal meaning...
I created two cards that I will be able to be used in the future..
Easter, Mother's Day, Graduations, maybe a birthday...
My "double duty" card will fit many up and coming holidays or events.

Begin by first applying pattern paper to the front of card bases.
Stamp flower image on to paper with distress ink.

Lay stencil on prepared card front; apply paste with palette knife. Dry.

Wrap card front with ribbon; tie off in a knot.

Stamp "Love" image on to journal blocks with black ink.
Die cut frame from pattern paper; adhere "Love" block to top with pop dots.
Add prepared frame to top of card with pop dots.

Paint chipboard with paint. Dry.

Apply Boss Gloss to top of painted chipboard; emboss with embossing powder.

Adhere emboss chipboard to card front.

Die cut flowers from pattern paper.

Mist die cuts with water; wad up. Dry.
Open piece up and layer together with brad.

Adhere flower to front of card.

Stamp butterfly on pattern paper; fussy cut out.
Layer together at bodies; lift wings up.

Adhere butterflies to front of card.
