Butterfly Easel Card

I hope you are having a nicer Spring day than we are having. We are in the middle of a nasty Spring snow storm. To get myself into a more "Springy" mood I made this pretty Butterfly Easel Card.

I love the filigree butterflies from Butterfly Easel Card by My Scrap Chick. I recently used it for a wreath and thought it was time I actually made the card. I love how it turned out!


 Butterfly Easel Card  file from My Scrap Chick
"Hello" sentiment from Cricut
"Pixey Stix Glitter Paper Pack from the Paper Studio
Pink, champagne and blue pearlescent cardstock by Recollections
Pink and small blue gems from Jots
Pink and blue ink (optional)
Pop Dots and Foam Tape
Glue runner and glue

The filigree layers of the butterflies and the blue oval behind the sentiment were cut from the pearlescent cardstock. The other pieces were cut from the Pixey Stix Pack.  All pieces were inked. The card measures 5 -1/4 by 6 -1/4 inches. The small butterfly was glued only in the body and the top layer of the wings were bent up. Gems were added to the body of each butterfly. The little butterfly was attached to the larger butterfly with Glue Dots.

 The sentiment is 1-1/8 inches tall. The bottom two layers were attached with foam tape. 

I traced the bottom section of the card to the back of the pink print and cut a quarter inch outside the line with a decorative Scissor. (Yes, I still have decorative scissors. I'm a Pack Rat, what can I say.) This piece was glued under the card base pink side up. 

This card is so pretty and feminine in person. 

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to know what you think, so feel free to leave a comment. 

Happy Spring!
