A Butterfly Case

Butterflies are all the rage right now.  You see them everywhere!  While scrolling thru Splitcoaststamper the other day I came across this amazing vintage step card that I knew I had to case.  So here it is.

The card base is from individual cardstock I got at a big name store that I had bought for something else, but I loved the tones of purple on it.  I used Crème cardstock, the Element of Style stamped in Chocolate Chip all over the pieces and Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi to water colored the flowers and leaves.  I love the vintage look of the pieces.  I found a piece of Grey and Lilac seam binding in my sewing stash to detail the front and back pages.  The butterflies were actually cut from Cricut Create a Critter page 64 on the shadow setting.

The sentiment is from the Element of Style set and it was cut using the Decorative Label punch with a circle punch of Wisteria Wonder behind it for depth.

I love the tiered look of this card and it was super easy to make!  Cut a 12″ X 12″ cardstock in half.  Score at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″.  Cut from the 2″ to the 10″ score line at 2″.  Flip the card over and score at 2″ again from the 2″ to the 10″.  Fold the card in a valley and fold like you see in the second picture.  So easy!!  Give it a try!

Have a Magical Day!
