Butterfly Easel Card

Hi everyone. I teach Paper Crafting and Card making at a local Joann's fabric here in Phoenix. Many that attend the classes are new card makers. Many new crafter's don't have all the tools or know some of the many techniques we have gathered and learned through the years.

I decided that Easel cards would be fun to create and are not too difficult. I was putting together my sample cards and I wanted to share with you one of them that I was really pleased with.

The die cut set I used is from Spellbinder and is called Wings of Hope. I have used the smaller butterfly on past cards, but had never used the bigger one. Well, I found a way to use it by just playing around.

I first cut the large butterfly, pushing the die cut up off the top of the crease so that I would have two that were connected.  I then scored the top layer (as you would do in an easel card and folded in half towards me.

Then I cut the smaller butterfly and attached it using my glue gun to the bottom half of the folded butterfly. This created the Easel butterfly. I then attached the bottom of the larger butterfly to a pink embossed base using 4 white brads, then attached that base to a 4"x 4" note card.

I embellished it with bling and it was done. I was so pleased with it that I made 3 more and am planning on making a matching card holder with my envelope punch. I think these will make cute little gifts.

Isn't it fun when you experiment?

Thanks for stopping by.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
