3-D butterfly Thinking of You Card

3-D butterfly Thinking of You Card is what we are creating today.  I have a lovely crafting friend that is going and will be going through some rough times the next couple of weeks. I thought it would be the perfect time to send a bright and cheerful card with a butterfly. Perfect, right? That’s what I thought! Let’s get started!

Supplies Needed for the 3-D butterfly Thinking of You Card 

A Creative Journey with Melissa Weather Related Stamp Set

Acrylic Block

Black Ink

Card Base

Decorative Paper for mat and strip of paper

Paper to punch and stamp for butterfly

3-D tape

adhesive

butterfly punch

Pen with cap

Quicker poker picker upper tool

Rhinestones

First step for the 3-D butterfly Thinking of You Card, take out your decorative paper and your butterfly punch.

Punch out your butterfly.

When creating this, I really wanted to have more than just a flat butterfly as you can see.

I think it looks better when it has a little 3D look as well as bling! Bling is ALWAYS GOOD! LOL

This is exactly what I DID NOT WANT so I am going to show you what to do so this doesn’t happen to you!

Take a pen that has a cap with a little extension on it like shown above. You know the perfect pens to put in your pocket. Place your butterfly in it

Carefully roll it around the pen.

I use my nail for the middle part to make a fold for the wings to be more 3D.

This is what it will look like with the side view.

I much prefer the rounded look of the butterfly, don’t you?

Do on the left and don’t on the right… LOL!

For the background of the 3-D butterfly Thinking of You Card, place adhesive to your decorative paper and place on your card base.

Place adhesive on your strip of paper and adhere to the front of the card base.

Take out your A Creative Journey with Melissa Weather Related Stamp Set , ink and stamp block.

Ink your sentiment and stamp on your butterfly.

Take out your rhinestones, rhinestone tool and your butterfly. Pick up your rhinestone and place them on your butterfly.

Take out your 3-D adhesive.

Quick Tip: I cut my 3-D tape in half so that I can use it for thinner smaller projects and so I have twice as much!

Place your 3-D tape on the back of your butterfly and adhere to your card front.

Take out your pen again if you need to fix the rounding of the butterfly.

See how the butterfly sticks out and looks like the wings are in flight? LOVE IT!
