Layered Butterfly Card

Hello........ Today I thought I'd share with you this pretty little flutterby card.

The butterfly came as part of a kit, that I recieved as a Christmas gift, which had sheets of coloured card and also a sheet of pre cut butterflies.

So it was just a case of popping out the pieces and building up in layers to make a 3d butterfly.

It was a bit fiddly as some of the pieces were so tiny that I had to cut the smallest 5mm foam pads I had in half,

The flowers for the wings were much easier

Just a bit of peeling and sticking

Until my three layered butterfly was almost complete

Well you know me I couldn't resist adding a bit of sparkle.


Then I just added some lilac polka dot paper to the bottom of a card blank

before sticking the butterfly in place

and adding a pretty green ribbon


One butterfly birthday card.
Happy Crafting
