The concept of the easel card is quite appealing - it packs flat and yet when it reaches its destination it can be assembled into something dimensional and spectacular. This is a variation on the easel card, where the base shape is a butterfly. When it was finished, I thought it would make a wonderful wedding placecards (for someone with a lot more patience than I have of course!), as the final size is about 10cm wide by 7cm tall.

Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

5-5125D Midge 


 LF-006 Wonderful Wings 
S3-205 Petite Labels One 

 Other Materials Used:

Pink roses 
KaiserCraft pearls 
Copic marker RV25 
StampIt Thank you stamp 

 Step 1 

Make a crisp fold in some cardstock, and place the folded edge about 2mm inside the cutting edge of the butterfly shadow die. Cut out the butterfly shape - you will end up with a little butterfly card with the fold at the top of the wings. 

 Step 2 

Bring the bottom wings of the front butterfly up toward the fold. 

 Step 3 

Cut another butterfly shadow shape out and adhere the top half of this to the folded wings. 

 Step 4 

Stamp a sentiment and cut around it with the Petite Labels die. 

 Step 5 

Adhere this to the inside of the card with a foam dot, and tuck the top part of the card behind it to stop it from closing. 

Step 6

 Embellish with a butterfly die cut, some little roses and some pearls. 

 Step 7 

This card will flatten out nicely for posting.
