Butterfly easel card
Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 22 Mar, 2017
There's always time to whip up a bespoke card for your number one lady, and this easel card is sure to paint the picture of just how much she means to you. Whether it's a loving project for Mother's Day or a special birthday, the intricate butterfly and floral details of this notelet are sure to delight mum.
1. To create the easel, score one half of a white 13.5cm card blank at 6.3cm. Crease with a bone folder and place a 10cm square die on the outer edge of the fold. Die cut to form a frame.
2. Secure a piece of acetate to the underside of the front panel. Cover the base of the easel with orange Willson Wood paper. Layer a lined die-cut onto blue paper and stick to the easel base, along with a die-cut sentiment and a cluster of wooden charms.
3. Die cut six panels from the wildflower die; three in white cardstock, one green, one blue and the last orange. Use the white panels as the base and stick the green die-cut on top. Fussy cut the butterflies from blue and the flowers from orange and mat on top. Attach the smallest flowers with 3D foam pads.
4. Glue clear gems to the butterflies and fix the panel to the front of the acetate to create a floating effect.
5. Die cut two butterflies and attach around the frame, lifting up the wings to add dimension.
