Fancy Butterfly card

Hi there, midweek already and usually I love my Wednesdays (its my long day) but not today because I have the dreaded dentist!!!! I have got to have a filling and I am dreading it, don't think I have had to have one since the boys were born!!!

Anyway on to happier things! Last night we had Tuesday Club again and I decided to use the colours of Gumball Green and Midnight Muse with lots of Crumb Cake. I have seen a card similar to this (with less layering) on Pinterest and was keen to have a go.


It's quite easy with the used of a Stamp a ma Jig!


Here you can see the dimension as I added a couple of extra ones on top.



Love this card if I do say so myself!! Hope you like it too!! I will share another one of our Tuesday Club cards tomorrow.

Hi this is an amazing card. How do you get the butterflies flying off the page? Are they just cut out or is there a clever technique to it?

Everyone else is asking, but will toss my question into the ring, too! How did you do the "die-cut" edges?? I'm racking my brain, holding imaginary paper and imaginary punch in my hands here at work and can't figure it LOL Did you fussy cut the outside edges (and if so, beautiful job!)?

Gorgeous card Julie. Did you have a die cut for the card base to get the butterfly shapes on the edge? Love all the colors. Very nicely done. Have a great day! Hugs, Gloria
