It’s the time of year where there are a lot of special occasions going on. Weddings, graduations and many more days that are being celebrated and you will need a card for every one of them. This wonderful window card features a floating butterfly ready to congratulate the receiver of this card.
Open the card base and lay it flat on the platform to your die cut machine. Align the patterned paper on the top of the card, but don’t adhere it to the card at this time. Center a circle die on top of both pieces and run it through the machine.
This is what you will now have at this point. Remove the patterned paper piece and lay it aside for later.
Lay one butterfly face up and use a glue pen to attach a piece of jewelry thread on top of it. You will want to make sure to have a long enough piece so that it lays above the opening on the card. Make sure that the thread is taught.
Attach a second color of butterfly to the first making sure the thread is sandwiched in between the pieces.
Attach a third butterfly to the top of the first two. Flip the stack over and repeat the layers being sure to alternate the colors.
Place some adhesive onto the front of the card base and lay the butterfly piece over the opening. Attach the patterned paper to the card. If necessary tighten the thread and trim it.
Create the frame using two individual sized circle dies and a piece of cardstock run through the die cut machine as shown.
Add glue to the frame and attach it to the base allowing it to dry.
No matter what the occasion you need a card for, this floating butterfly will be ready to bring joy to the occasion. Do you have several events where you need a card? Even though it looks difficult it’s really easy to make so you’ll have several finished in no time at all. Plus, it will bring a smile to anyone who opens it.
