Surprise! The Loveliest Card…Using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Surprise! The Loveliest Card…Using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

The concept of this card is nothing new. Look up cards with these styles and many show up on Pinterest. But, I had never made one myself and it was so much fun I can’t wait to make more.

The fun begins with a simple front of just DSP (designer series paper!) and a simple decorative sentiment and butterflies. The POW really comes when you open up the card!

Any one would love to receive a card like this.

Here is how I made it:

First, take a half sheet of cardstock of your choosing, measuring 5-1/2″ b 8-1/2″ and score it down the center at 4-1/2″. Decorate as you please!

Second, take a piece of whisper white cardstock measuring 5-1/4″ x 8″.
Score down the middle, and measure from the center 1-1/2″ on both sides from the middle mark. And 2-1/2″ down on the center line. Create your diagonals (I use a steel ruler) and fold.

I love the butterflies popping out of this card in a great big surprise and it has me thinking about other objects I could have popping out. Flowers. Bugs. Bunnies. Mason Jars. I think the possibilities could be endless.

Unfortunately this particular set of DSP is no longer available. But, I know there is lots of other designer paper we could incorporate.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you were inspired by my project.
