Butterfly Celebrate Card

SUPPLIES:  Cardstock: (Royal) Core'dinations  Patterned paper: (Special Swirls from Uniquely You collection) My Mind's Eye  Transparency sheet: (Wings) Hambly Screen Prints  Rub-ons: (Old School Tiny Alpha alphabet) Jenni Bowlin Studio  Finished size: 4 1/4" x 5 3/4"


1 Make card from patterned paper.

2 Trim butterflies from transparency sheet; fold in half for dimension, unfold, and adhere to card.

3 Spell sentiment with rub-ons on cardstock strip; adhere.


Good Things Come in Threes

Angie used her three freebie items in a unique way. Instead of using cardstock as the card base, she used it for the sentiment and utilized patterned paper as a base. The card gives the illusion of using many items because of the butterflies, which were individually cut from a single transparency sheet.


Designer Tip

Hambly produces this transparency sheet in a variety of colors, so you can create this card in any color that suits your fancy.


The Creativity of Three

Our designers created fantastic designs in our triple challenge. See how they used three items of their choosing, together with cardstock, adhesive and a cutting edge in our "Good Things Come in Threes" feature in our March/April 2010 issue.

Simple Idea
For those who had trouble finding the supplies to make this... try searching for butterfly silhouette images on Google and print them out on cardstock. I simply cut them out and then put them on the card upside down so the white side showed. :)
It looks so simple, I LOVE the butterflies.!!
This is a beautiful card. It looks like it could "Take Flight" at any moment. How uplifiting it is.... Thank you for taking the time to create such a treat.
I love dimensional elements on cards - this one is SOOO beautiful!

Card dimension
Actually, when I made this card, I cut each butterfly and then folded in half to create the dimension. I then added it to the card. Because of the thickness of the transparency, you could put this in an envelope and then when it is pulled out, it pops back up. Might be best to give it to some one in person though, rather than mail it... although, I did mail this to the papercrafts team before they photographed it... and it was mailed back... and it still looks great! -Angie Hagist
Beautiful butterfly card
Absolutely love this card!! I'm curious to know how easy it was to cut all those butterflies from the transparency sheet, could you use vellum instead?
Stampin Up
I used the die cut sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings for all the butterfiles that I just bought from stampin up and I love it and made the same card.

impossible to find supplies to make it I looked up the websites and no success with finding the material needed..
How to purchase Hambly Screen Prints?
wonderful card but very frustrating trying to track down the transparency butterfly sheet.
Shipping info
You can purchase card envelope mailing boxes from quilling websites. They are made to allow room for 3-d shapes and card sized to keep costs down! Hope this helps.
Absolutely beautiful!!!
What a great dimensional card! Where do you find the transparency sheets?
I haven't found a word beyond exquisite !! I tried!!!!
How would you mail this so as not to destroy the effect of life that this card so gracefully gives?!
This is an exquisite card!!!
It looks so much more intricate than it is!
This card takes my breath away!!
Butterfly Celebrate Card
This is a great dimensional card, but how in the world would you put it in an envelope let alone mail it, without destroying the dimension?
