Standing Butterfly Card

I made this butterfly card for my granddaughter, Lisa who turned 13 this week.  She loves pink and always wants a pink card.  I think she will love her card.

The butterfly lays flat to mail.

The butterfly stands up.

This is a side view of the card.  Directions are below.

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 decorative Delia 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 allowing it to stand above the double cut butterfly.  The decorative cut butterfly was attached to that butterfly.  Then a row of  rhinestones were glued to the middle of the top butterfly.
