This month, our designer for the day was PaperCrafter reader Christina Smith, who couldn’t resist sending us two of the cards she made from our issue 68 Bollywood-inspired kit. If you tried Christina’s lovely birdhouse greeting, then you’ll love this bonus make.

METHOD: Bombay Butterfly Card

Using the butterfly shaped card, rub on a flower transfer to the top right wing of the butterfly and add a gold embellishment to the centre of the flower. Rub on the circular ‘Love’ transfer to the top left wing of the butterfly.

Draw two spirals onto your choice of patterned paper from the Studio Selection paper book and cut out. Starting with the outer edge, wind this in a coil so it forms a circular rose-like shape. Add glue to the centre and press together. Once set, add a spiral to the bottom half of each butterfly wing.

Rub on the small red peacock transfer to the top of the card, inbetween the butterfly’s antennae. Rub on the small blue peacock transfer to the bottom of the card, inbetween the butterfly wings.

Rub on a section of the big peacock border transfer to the body of the butterfly. Add a small gold circle embellishment for the head, above the body, and two heart sequins at the top of the antennae.

Use a glue pen to go around the edges of the butterfly and add glitter in the colour of your choice, to give the butterfly further definition. Take a look at our beautiful butterfly picks over on our Pinterest board here
