When I make simple cards I love to add a touch of elegance with die cut butterfly embellishments.  To make the butterfly even prettier I add a few small stems and flowers.  To make this card I used the Rectangle Combo #2, Butterfly #3, Small Flowers #3, Flower Stems and Best Friends.

Die cut butterfly embellishments are perfect to dress up a simple handmade card.

The Frame and Sentiment

  • Use white cardstock to cut the A2 sized card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the card base using versa and emboss it with gold embossing power.
  • Cut the frame layers using white and purple cardstock.
  • Turn the frames face down and attach them all together using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frames and attach it to the card base.

The Butterfly, Stems and Flowers

  • Use white and purple cardstock to cut the two butterfly layers.
  • Attach the white butterfly to the purple butterfly using glossy accents.

Use small foliage stems and flowers to decorate die cut butterfly embellishments.

  • Cut flower stems and trim the ends off to shorten to fit on the butterfly.
  • Attach three stems to the butterfly using glossy accents.

Decorate die cut butterflies with tiny flowers and stems to make simple handmade cards more special.

  • Cut small flower using purple cardstock.
  • Form the flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the flowers to the stems using glossy accents.

Die cut butterfly embellishments are enhanced with small stems and flowers.

  • Attach white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers using glossy accents.
  • Note:  I apply Nuvo Crystal Drops to a small piece of craft sheet to have for my projects.  They stay attached on the sheet until I’m ready to use them.  I pick them up with the tip of my paper piercer and attach them in place with glossy accents.

Decorate your simple handmade cards with die cut butterfly embellishments.
