Today we have a lovely butterfly card to share with you. As the card has a special technique we've also included a mini tutorial for you.


 Step One: 
Cut a butterfly using a die from the Wonderful Wings set. 

Step Two:
 Cut a triangle shape using a die from the Nested Pennants set.

Step Three:
Roll the triangle up starting from the side opposite the point. I find a skewer handy for this. 

Step Three (a):
 When you get to the end, glue it down with a touch of PVA glue.

Step Four: 
Slip the skewer out and glue the body to the butterfly with another touch of PVA glue. Fold the wings of the butterfly upwards so it doesn't sit flat.
