Wonderful in every way using Memory Box Butterfly Heart

 Happy Tuesday everyone! It's Rosie here today showing you how to create a simple, colorful card using 1 die and rainbow patterned paper! I absolutely love this die from Memory Box called BUTTERFLY HEART. I think it makes a dramatic presentation on any card.


Let's Get Started!

Step 1: This die does not cut all the way through which is the brilliant part. It just cuts the outer part of the wings of each butterfly so you can then pull the wings up to create dimension. I cut two butterfly hearts, one from white cardstock and one from rainbow patterned digital paper.

Step 2: I used a craft knife to cut out each butterfly from the rainbow paper. This was the time-consuming part of making this card. If you are short on time, you could just use markers to color each of the wings on the white cardstock. I was just worried I would get ink on the surrounding white areas.

Step 3: Match up and glue the rainbow butterflies on top of the white butterflies. I did one butterfly at a time to make sure I matched them up correctly.
 
Step 4: Find a sentiment you like and stamp it below the butterfly heart. Next, cut a piece of red cardstock at 4"x5.25" to go under the butterfly card panel which is 3.75"x5". Then, glue it to the white card base measuring 4.25"x5.50". The last step is to bend all the butterfly wings upward to create the dimension.
 
Here it is all assembled!

These are the products I used:
