Pop-Up Butterfly Cards

Posted on

I recently found this neat tutorial for a pop-up card and had to try my hand at it.  The instructions may seem intimidating at first but it was so much fun and pretty easy once I got the hang of it.


For the first one I used the Ivy Lane Paper Packet, A Mother’s Love hostess stamp, and the Cricut Artbooking Cartridge.  To make things “float” you use an acetate sheet.  Since I hate to throw anything away and am always trying to recycle everything I actually had an acetate sheet.  I had ripped it out of the front of toy packaging we were going to throw away.

Here’s a picture of it folded flat for mailing:

Here’s one using the Ariana paper packet.

I was really happy with how they turned out!  If you’d like the instructions head over to Splitcoaststampers and try one of your own.

If you love that stamp set that I used make sure you host a party this month!  The only way to get this stamp is by having a $150 party and using your free product credit.  If you want to have a party just contact me and do it soon because this stamp retires July 31!

Butterfly Display with Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Posted on

Welcome to July!  It’s my birthday month so to celebrate I’m going to be posting all sorts of artwork and giveaways.  Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out 🙂

To start off I wanted to show you this fun display I made with the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  I cut the butterflies using various sizes and put them on floral wire.  I took some floral foam and covered it with cardstock using liquid glass.  I put the wire into the base and then secured my butterflies in various places.  I wanted to make a bigger display but this was the biggest bell jar I could find at Michael’s.  If I ever come across a bigger one I will definitely upgrade this project.  It was super easy but has such wow-factor!

I made this one using our Ariana paper packet which will only be available until July 31.  I also used our brown glitter paper.  Let me know what you think 🙂



Heres a few without the bell jar:
