3D Butterfly Card

Good Afternoon!

I have a card for you today that I made for my Neice’s Birthday recently as she loves Butterflies. I’ve previously seen this idea created with punches but our Cutting Machines allow us to make them any size or shape we like :)

I cut my card base from some aqua card and my matting layer from some yellow chevron paper as this matting layer shows under the Butterfly wings. I cut my card front from some white card then cut my Butterflies from 3 different patterned papers, it really pays to use double sided papers for the Butterflies as the under side of the Wings are visible too. I adhered both layers directly to my card base then folded each Butterfly and added a strip of glue just down the fold and placed into each Butterfly gap in the card front. Once the glue is dry you can bend the wings outwards for a 3 Dimensional effect.

If you’d like to use my Square Box Envelope to place your card inside without crushing the wings, you can find it here :)
