Butterfly Make & Take Card

If you're looking for a quick and easy, any occasion card that's perfect for spring, this Butterfly Card we did at the Sue Gilman Show Make & Take Frenzy is it! Made from our new, dreamy butterfly line, you could use this card as a thank you note, birthday greeting, or just an inspired hello! Just follow along with the instructions below!


1 piece of white cardstock
1 piece of pastel ribbon (green, pink, blue, yellow or cream work well)
6 rhinestones
pop dots

  1. Trim white cardstock to 6.5 x 10" and fold in half to yeild a 5 x 6.5" card.
  2. Trace the folded card onto the Butterfly Dream paper along the right hand side, so the word Hope will appear in the upper left hand corner when trimmed. Cut out and adhere to front of card.
  3. Peel the 12" border from the Butterflies cardstock sticker and place along the left side of card. Trim off excess.
  4. Attach the butterflies from the cardstock sticker by folding the wings upward along either side of the body. Stick the butterfly's body to the card and make sure it sticks well. Adjust the curl of the wings to your liking. Make sure to put a bit of baby powder on the back of each wing after the butterfly is stuck to the card to prevent the wings from sticking back down. Arrange five butterflies fluttering upward toward the top of the card.

  5. Coat the back of the "Dream" title sticker from the cardstock with Baby Powder. Adhere to the bottom right corner of the card using pop-dots for a dimensional effect.
  6. Add the tiny yellow cardstock butterfly to the end of the word "Dream."
  7. Embellish the center of each butterfly with a clear rhinestone.

  8. To finish, accent the card with a pastel ribbon tied around the hinge, knotted at the top.
Isn't it just perfect for spring!!

While we were at the show, our friend Adrienne from My Sentiments Exactly hooked us up with some of her awesome stamps! We especially love the True Friends set (YT575) that features beautiful monarch butterflies that we can't wait to use with our new Butterfly Theme! Adrienne also gave us an awesome set for a blog give-away coming up in the near future... Be sure to check back often for the chance to win!
