T he beautiful butterfly papers in the Butterfly Bijou paper pack goes with so many different colors, it is easy to make a card with your favorite color.
Card Base: Cut Basic White 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut paper 4 X 5 ¼, for this card I used Magenta Madness.
Card Front: Cut Butterfly print paper 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛. Attach card front to card mat, attach these to the white card base.
Use the Stitched Nested Labels to cut the labels for the front of the card. I used the 3rd largest die to cut a mat of the same color as the card mat. I used the 4th largest dies to cut a label from Basic White.
Stamp the birthday sentiment with black ink to the right side of the label. Attach the stamped white label to the solid color label. Attach to the card front.
I cut 6 butterflies at once from the Butterfly Bijou paper pack with the largest butterfly die. Attach a butterfly to the left of the stamped white label. I attached just the body of the butterfly so wings could fold up. Add Wink of Stella to the wings. Add three black matte dots.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Whisper White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
