Fluttering Butterfly Note Card

A few years ago a good friend gave me some beautiful papers to use in creating my handmade cards. I wanted to thank her, and of course I used some of the papers to create a special card just for her. I am so sorry to say that I do not have a picture of the card, but I recently made a card very similar to the one I gave my friend. I was reminded of this card as I have recently seen the beautiful creations from designer Karen Burniston.

I used Baker’s twine to attach my fluttering butterfly in the cutout of this notecard.

A die cut was used to create the ‘fluttering’ space for my butterfly. I used Baker’s twine to attach each side of my butterfly punch; I simply adhered it to the middle. The ends of the twine were attached to the card before I added the last layer of printed paper.

Flip open the inside page to add a personal message to this note card.

I created a fold-down section on the inside of the card since I didn’t want the message to be seen from the front. Once I added a few border and corner silver stickers to the front I was finished with this fun card! This would also make a nice thank you card or even a birthday or wedding card! I think everyone loves butterflies!

A birdcage, wedding bells, birds, or lots of other images could be used to make a card like this! Use your imagination! I enjoy making cards and finding new (and old) ways of creating them. We all use and share ideas from so many talented people. We can even ‘mix & match’ ideas to come up with a new way to be creative! Just remember to give credit where credit is due! Thank you Karen Burniston for reminding me of this technique!

Enjoy your creative day!

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I am sure you miss your grandmother and aunts, but you can still carry on their tradition of sending cards. In this techno world, we need to keep ‘old fashioned’ ways alive. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  1. This card is simply beautiful. There are a lot of subtle elements going on in the design. I actually had to study the images to capture all of the details. Quite a work of art, actually!

    1. Oh my! Thea, I do appreciate your kind comments. I wanted to keep this card on the ‘simple’ side to show off the butterfly and the lovely printed paper. Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave such a wonderful comment! Enjoy your day!
