|Cut the serviette into quarters.|
|Seperate each layer of the serviette - you will only need the top layer for the felted cardstock technique.|
|Use the iron on the highest dry setting and iron over the sandwich for a minute or so. Peel the cardstock off the scrap paper and trim the serviette to size. This can be adhered to the real red card.|

|Making the flower.|
Punch two butterflies out of whisper white cardstock.
|Working with one butterfly at a time spritz with water. Using an aqua painter apply the so saffron ink to the butterfly.|
|Apply the perfect plum ink and allow to dry.|
|Using the black stampin' write marker apply detail to the centre of the butterfly. |
|Punch a small hole in the middle of each butterfly and set the brad. Slightly curl the edges of the petals up.|
|Punch out three leaves and attach them to the back of the flower.|
|Stamp the sentiment using real red ink.|
|Use both snail adhesive and dimensionals to completed the card.|
