YAY – it’s another Facebook Live replay this time for an easel card with butterfly cutout. And not just any old cut out…one with a fun technique that’s super duper quick & easy to make yourself!
But I’m getting ahead of myself… 😋
All this week I’m featuring butterflies in my blogs and over on my Facebook group. I know what you’re thinking. These little beauties aren’t fluttering about yet in your part of the world right? Well, here neither but they are such fun I wanted to showcase them now!
Take a peek at what we’re making today.
You’re probably used to seeing an easel card with a taller front focal piece of paper. Well who says you HAVE to make it that way? This one is just as pretty and stands up well without the added weight.
OK now it’s time to show you all the steps to make this fun fold card at home.

Which One Is YOUR Favourite?
It’s decision time! This is one of the best parts of my live card making classes. I always ask which one is your fave.
So leave me a comment…is it
a. the card we made together?
b. this tri-coloured beauty with such spring-like colours?
or c. this classic yellow and black one featuring Butterfly Beauty dies?
If this last one is YOUR fave, you will also love this one made in the same colour combination.
Don’t have a lot of time? I shared another version that ‘s even QUICKER in the video. Take a gander if you haven’t already.
I do love when you take the time to join in my Facebook Lives and stop by here for a read. I hope you found a little nugget to make your paper crafting a teensy bit more fun.
