Pop-Up Butterfly Just For You

 Hello and welcome back! Here's today's card:

This card is for the fun fold challenge at Double Trouble (I also included flowers in the DSP) and the tic-tac-toe challenge at Retro Rubber (diagonal - die cut, layers, your choice). 

I found a tutorial from Dawn Griffith to make this fun pop-up design. This butterfly stamp set is more than 5 years old, so it definitely qualifies for "retro" status!

The butterfly is stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather, with a Memento Tuxedo Black body and antennae. And of course, I had to add those blingy Iridescent Rhinestones. I hardly ever make a card without them!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!


Supplies used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamp sets - Watercolor Wings, Happiness Abounds

Paper - Basic White and Gorgeous Grape Cardstock; Botanical Butterfly DSP

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather

Accessories - Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels

Tools - Big Shot, Stitched Shapes Dies, Layering Ovals Dies, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
