3D Butterfly Cards

I love butterflies and I love my Cricut Expression. I got my inspiration for these 3D Butterfly Cards from Daniela Dobson. I did not have exactly the same template, but the idea is identical. So I owe this design to her. I used my Cricut Expression with the Home Accent Cartridge in cutting the butterflies. Then cut another different size of butterflies and layered them together to create a 3D effect.

For the base card, I used the shadow option of the Butterfly <btfly2-s> cut at 5". Then for the 2nd layer, I used the shift-butterfly option <btfly2-s> cut at 4¼".

I used Prima mini-flowers, brads and ribbons to embellish the card.

For this one, I used a craft foam. I traced the butterfly and simply use scissor to cut the foam. I then applied thin glue( I used glue pen) at the edge of the 2nd layer butterfly and poured some powder glitters

Another great ideas you can make using butterfly cut- outs
