Welcome to Fun Fold Friday! There is so much you can do with the Butterfly Bouquet! I apologize to those of you who are tiring of this set, however, I have a wonderful Fun Fold for you today!
This card features the Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the Butterfly Bouquet called Butterfly Bijou. What is a Bijou? I didn’t know so I looked it up. A Bijou is something that is delicate, elegant or highly prized (defined by Merriam-Webster). I think Bijou definitely describes this Suite. Well enough of that-let’s make the card!
Measurements: Butterfly Bijou DSP: small butterfly/pink splatter design: 2 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches and 4 x 5 1/4 inches, and one 6 x 6 inch piece of the large butterfly design; Calypso Coral Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 7 inches scored at 2 3/4 inches; Calypso Coral CS: 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches scored at 1/2 inches; and Basic White CS: 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches.
The Brilliant Wings Dies have a die that fits around all of the butterflies on the large butterfly design of the Butterfly Bijou DSP. If you do not have a die cutting machine, the butterflies can be fussy cut.
I will be using the Magenta Madness and the Calypso Coral colored butterflies.
Putting the card together
The first step is to adhere the 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch Calypso Coral CS to the 7 x 5 1/2 inch Calypso Coral CS so that it will fold toward the inside of the card base.
Next adhere the 4 x 5 1/2 inch Butterfly Bijou DSP with the pink splatter design side up to the inside of the 5 1/2 x 7 inch CS card base.
Continue by adhering the 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 inch Butterfly Bijou DSP to the card front. Then adhere the 2 3/4 x 3 1/4 inch Butterfly Bijou DSP, with the pink splatter side up, onto the front of the flap.
The card should end up looking like this.
To complete the inside of the card adhere the 3 1/4 x 3 1/4 inch Basic White CS to the inside of the card, minding the positioning so that the Basic White CS is hidden when the card is closed.
Adding the Butterflies
To add some dimension to the butterflies, you can use your Bone Folder to gently curl the wings.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the butterflies to the flap on the card front. I also added some Bling! by placing a few of the Elegant Faceted Gems around wherever I wished.
Viola! You have made a wonderful Fun Fold note card!
Thanks so much for coming by today! I hope you enjoyed this easy Fun Fold and will give it a try.
Have a wonderful and creative day!
