Butterfly Stand Up Card

I saw this idea on Pinterest,  but no one seem to have instructions on how to do it.  I am not mechanical minded at all, so it took me some time to get it figured out.  But I did, and I love it.  Now I wish I had a larger butterfly die to work with.

First I placed the Memory  Box Butterfly 98583 Delia die a little above the folded card stock and cut it out so there are two connected pieces.  Then I embossed it using a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder called Kassie.  Next I cut another single butterfly with the same die and embossed it with the same folder.  A smaller Cheery Lynn butterfly was die cut.

I scored the fold as deep as I could, then the butterfly that is laying down was scored with the ridge up to prop up the standing butterfly.  The single embossed butterfly was glued to the half of butterfly and the smaller cut out butterfly was attached to that butterfly.  Then a row of  rhinestones were glued to the middle of the top butterfly.

Hopefully this makes sense.  If not email or call me.  I don't have time today to do a tutorial, but if you need it later I will be happy to do so.

Next week I am having all 17 grandkids here for an all day camp.  I am planning crafts, games, bible stories, singing and food.  I have a lot to do to be ready as I want it to be a day of happy memories for all of us.  I will post pictures after next Thursday.

Gorgeous card. Thanks for providing the mechanics - I think you did that quite well. I don't have a butterfly die that big, but if I ever find one, I'll know how to make the card.
