Butterfly Easel Card
I do not consider myself much of a cardmaker – but I do like to create dimensional cards that kind of do all the work for you! I adapted this design from a few ideas I saw online.
The Mistables papers from Pink Paislee form the perfect base for this card which folds completely flat for mailing and fits into a standard square envelope. I used crimson paint to color the butterflies – though I applied it very lightly and rubbed the excess off with a damp cloth – which resulted in a delicate orange finish .
I really had to resist the temptation to add more to this card – but sometimes less IS more! The butterfly on the front is colored the same way and is one of the new exciting pieces in the Artisan Collection.
Since this card was published, I have been asked a few times for a tutorial showing how to create it. I will be creating a tutorial soon as well as hopefully sharing a cutting file in several formats so you can easily create one with your digital die-cut machine – however it is also easy to recreate with some scissors and a little patience!
