Birthday Butterfly

It was my birthday yesterday and amongst my many pressies I received some nesting butterfly dies. I was over the moon as a while ago I had seen THIS card on VICKY'S blog and was dying to recreate it.
My card looks like this

My card stock was folded in half and the die placed on the card stock just a little above the fold so that it made a shaped card. I used my cuttlebug.
The butterfly was then die cut again - whole and used to make an easel card.

There are four dies in the set and I cut a number of them to layer up on the card - I then added a sentiment and a few gems to finish it off.
Here's what it looks like folded down ready to be posted

Pop back tomorrow and I will share with you some of the amazing hand made cards i received from some of my crafty friends - see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. Gorgeous and very clever- I've recently ordered a set of nesting star dies and I wonder if I could do something similar.... Hmmm.

  2. Bit of an oops from me and sorry to miss your birthday Jacqueline. A belated Many Happy Returns and hope you had a lovely day.
    The card is gorgeous and oddly enough I was tempted by the set a few days ago so might have to indulge myself now as it looks fabulous used like this.
    Hugs, Fliss xx
