Butterfly Easel Card
Hi everyone, are you ready for another of the cards I created in Spartanburg last weekend? This delicate easel fold card was created using the Silhouette Cameo. This is actually four different cuts combined to make one card.
I began by cutting a basic easel fold card in peach cardstock. Next, using Close to My Heart floral print cardstock, I cut the scalloped edge background layer. I love the soft floral print of this cardstock. Next I used blue cardstock to cut a delicate detailed frame. And finally, again using Close to My Heart dotted cardstock, I cut two butterflies.
I layered the scalloped layer over the peach cardstock then added the blue frame. I love how cleanly the Silhouette Cameo cuts delicate images.
Using some of last month's Dotty for You cardstock, I cut two Silhouette butterflies for the front of the card. Glue was applied to the butterfly center body only, not the wings. I wanted the wings to flutter.
Peggy thought this looked like a sympathy card and someone else suggested a card for mom. With a stamped message it could also become a birthday card.
Thanks for stopping by today. I have another card to share tomorrow created with the Cricut and an easy technique. I hope you have time to pop back by.
