Embossed Card with Butterfly

The die-cut butterfly is created out thin silver craft metal sheets (shiny metallic cardstock can also be used) and is the perfect finish to the card.



Blue Birthday Card - Stamping and Embossing

For this project you will need:

- dark blue card
- white and dark blue cardstock
- Cuttlebug embossing machine (or machine of your choice) and Cuttlebug folder “Divine Swirls”
- silver craft metal sheets or shiny metallic cardstock for embossing
- butterfly die-cut and embossing template (from Spellbinders)
- rubber stamp with birthday sentiment
- dark blue pigment stamp pad
- clear embossing powder
- pricking needle and pad
- thin silver wire or thread for sewing
- 4 dark blue mini-brads
- double sided sticky tape or stick glue


1. Cut out a piece of white cardstock that is slightly smaller than your card and emboss it using your Cuttlebug according to manufacturer’s instructions. Do not adhere this to the card yet.

2. Cut out a piece of dark blue cardstock rectangle that is as wide as the embossed white cardstock from step 1, and about 5 cm high. Adhere this blue rectangle to the embossed white cardstock, about 2 centimeters (almost an inch) from the bottom. Prick evenly distanced holes around the blue cardstock and sew a running stitch around it. When finished, glue this piece now the dark blue card. Set aside for a moment.

3. Stamp and emboss your birthday sentiment on a piece of white cardstock. Cut out in a rectangle shape and adhere to a piece of dark blue cardstock. Cut out with a small border and adhere to the card using brads like you see in the image.

4. To finish off the card, die cut and emboss a butterfly out of the metal foil and adhere to the card using foam tape.
