Butterfly Beauty

Card making Techniques Die cutting

Butterflies are beautiful creatures and make lovely motifs to feature throughout your card crafting. Die cutting the shapes means that every one is identical, making this card quicker to make than you might think. Katie Skilton’s project features a swarm of pink and lilac flutterers, embellished with gems and set atop an intricate green scene. By clipping on a vellum sentiment, this versatile project can be made for any occasion.

YOU WILL NEED:

Craft essentials, Sizzix Thinlits dies, Spring Garden, Graceful Butteray #2, Vellum

METHOD: Butterfly Beauty

Trim a white 12cm x 15.5cm blank and cover both inside panels with green card. Using the Spring Garden die, cut the background butterἀy scenery from light green and adhere to the blank.

Die cut six plain butterflies and six intricate ones. Join the plain ones together on the side of their wings to create a long chain. Affix the chain to the card as shown. Adhere the intricate butterἀies on top of the plain ones, glueing just the bodies so the wings are left free.

Die cut the Spring Garden shape again from co-ordinating card, trimming out butterflies and layering on top of the green scenery. Apply gems to the insects’ bodies. Print or stamp a sentiment onto vellum and clip on the card as shown.
