Golden Butterfly Wishes


Card size: 4 3/4" X 6 5/8”. Start with 1 piece of white cardstock that is 5 1/2” x 6 5/8”, score at 3/8” on both long sides for tabs to glue to 2 pieces of white cardstock that are 1 1/2" x 6 5/8”. Glue the 1 1/2" pieces to the tabs, card base is done.

You need two 1/2" by 6 5/8” plus one 4 3/8” X 6 3/8” pieces of white cardstock to spray Oxide inks on, whichever your preferred colors are (a mixed media type cardstock works best). When completely dry glue the 1/2" pieces to the 2 sides and glue the larger piece inside of card.

Use gold cardstock to cut the front (gatefold) die cuts using the new Classic Companion Border Die (cuts both sides at once). Also cut 2 decorative butterflies, one 2 1/2" circle and one 7/8” X 5” piece out of gold. From white cardstock cut 2 butterfly decorative die cuts, one 2 3/8” circle and 1 banner shortened to 4 3/8” long.

Use Majestic Violet to stamp both sentiments, 1 on the banner and 1 on the white circle. Glue banner onto the 5” gold strip then trim ends of gold to match banner. Glue white circle to gold circle then glue the circles to the center of inside.

Stamp VersaMark on white 2 times and on gold 2 times. Use gold embossing powder for the gold stamped butterflies and use white embossing powder for the 2 white. Heat emboss then die cut all 4 butterfly bases. Glue white filigree butterflies to gold stamped bases and gold filigree die cuts to white stamped bases. Glue the 2 gold base butterflies inside with circle sentiment.

Glue the 2 gatefold gold die cut pieces to the 1/2” front sides of card base. The 2 gold fronts should meet in the middle just perfectly. Use foam tape or other dimensional adhesive to adhere left half of banner sentiment to left side of card at a slight angle. Adhere both white base butterflies using foam tape under their bodies on the top left side and bottom right side of card front.
