I had planned to go pick strawberries this morning, but since we have had so much rain this past week, the strawberry farm is closed for a few days. This just gives me more time designing cards! I have been anxious to work with the new Sizzix, Butterfly Window 3-D Popup die so that is what I worked with to create this fun card.
A couple of days ago, Joan posted a beautiful birthday card she designed with these dies, and you can see it and a video on how to use these dies, at this link.
I used the Sizzix "Square w/Ornate Edge Card Pop-up Die to create the pretty shaped card. In the center of this die I used the Sizzix "Butterfly Window 3-D Pop die" I love how you can see the butterfly on the front when the card is closed then you see the same butterfly inside, when you open it, along with a smaller 3-D butterfly. On top of the large butterfly pop-up, I added the Memory Box "Vivienne Butterfly" die cut. The butterfly was only attached at the body to give it a lot of dimension. On the smaller pop-up butterfly, I added one of the Cheery Lynn "Mini Butterflies" die cut.
This die creates an opening behind the pop-ups and I decided to add a piece of design paper, on the inside, and covered it with the Cheery Lynn "French Lattice Sm Frame". I added the same design paper on the outside to cover that same opening and used just one strip cut from the "French Lattice Sm Frame" as a border along each side.
On the front I used a stamp from the new JustRite "Winged Vintage Labels Two & Three for the sentiment. The sentiment reads: "Love is like a butterfly: It goes where it Pleases and it pleases wherever it goes." Perfect sentiment for this card, isn't it! For a border on the inside, I added the Memory Box "Butterfly Vine Border".
