ID: MC Jan/12 - Pop Up - Butterflies card
4.25"w x 8"h

Created: January 9, 2012

I came across the cover of a book on Amazon that had a Dove popping off the top of the card (The Pop-Up Book by Jackson Paul). It looked so good, I thought I'd try one using a butterfly to go with the new Butterfly quote stamps from Quietfire Design. I like the way it turned out.


I used a Spellbinders "Fanciful Flight" the large butterfly in the set and white cardstock. The only part of the butterfly attached to the card is the bottom of the wing. I smeared it with Perfect Medium and embossed with white embossing powder, It has a bit of a sparkle to it too. I then cut out another of the butterflies, but only cutting around the edge, from a dark blue matte paper (my Paper Roots collection). Adhered it to the back of the card butterfly. Sponged Distress Broken China & Faded Jeans on the part of the butterfly visible from the inside. Adhered some floral stamen.

Embossed the white card using the Sizzix "Butterfly Migration" set on the front and the back, sponging the high points with the blues.

Adhered a blue/white polka dotted ribbon, front and back.

Stamped the butterfly quote circle on white cardstock, die cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Circle, sponged the edges with the Broken China, stamped the smaller flower (Inkadinkado) with the Broken China and added a blue floral brad. Adhered to card and adhered the white ribbon leaves.
