If you love an interactive card I bet this will get your attention. It is a gatefold card with Fluttering Butterfly when you open it. I will not say that it’s simple but I got it done.
I was inspired by Jay at Mitosu click here to view his. He done is with the Cuckoo Clock die. I didn’t have that die so I come up with a different way to get the butterfly to move. A little math involved in this card but I love numbers so it was a great challenge for me.
I have the how-to video below in this post or you can view it on my YouTube channel.
I listed the color for the card above. I did some cards in different colors and will list each color under each other cards.
- Pool Party
Base 8½ x 5½ score at 2-1/8 at each end.
Center inside piece 5½ x 3 (slot at 2 to 2½)
Moving strips 2 of 4½ x 2 score at 3/8, ¾, 1-1/8, 1½, 1-7/8, 2¼, 3¾
- Daffodil Delight 5½ x 4¼ for the top butterfly die-cut, 1½ x 10 for the belly band.
- Blackberry Bliss 5½ x 4½ back Butterfly die-cut.
For the die-cut of the butterfly, it will die cut all the connecting butterfly. I share in the video how to separate them and all butter you do not use can be safe for other cards.
Color choice for this one is seaside Spray, Pretty Peacock and Daffodil Delight.
The one at the top left corner is Purple Posy, Flirty Flamingo and Blackberry bliss.
In the video, I share all step by step. The best advice is to open and close a few times and VOILA! you have the fluttering butterfly.
