Build A Butterfly Card Makeover: How to Add Surprises to a Basic Card Layout

When I have a card idea that makes the most of Designer Series Paper (because it’s so pretty!), I love to add few extra bonuses that can turn a relatively plain card layout into something surprising. Today’s Butterfly Kisses card with the Build A Butterfly Dies will add 3 specific tricks that transform a simple card into something more.

We’ll look at three steps to makeover a basic card design:

  1. Add a layer (like the Starry Sky border behind the designer series paper)
  2. Use a stitched die for extra interest (love those rectangles)
  3. Create a Fun Fold for without changing the basic layout – Z Fold Cards are perfect!

Finally, remember to add extra pops of interest and embellishments – like the Fun Flower Resin Shapes and butterfly from the Build A Butterfly Dies shown below.

Today’s card is one of 4 projects featured in my June LovenStamps Monthly Tutorials. Each month I carefully select a group of coordinating supplies – stamps, ink, papers and embellishments – then design 4 fabulous projects using only those products. You’ll love crafting these 4 projects at home! You can follow along with the monthly LovenStamps Project Tutorial videos, or you can follow the directions in my printable PDF tutorials – a new tutorial set is available for free each month when you order products in my online Stampin Up store. (Or you can purchase PDF tutorials in my LovenStamps Etsy shop.)

Plus if your stamping order is at least $50, then you’ll also receive LovenStamps Card Kits “To Go” – two ready-to-stamp card kits mailed to your home for 2 of the monthly projects. Just add your stamps and ink, and I’ll supply the pre-cut papers.

Looking for easy-print downloadable PDF tutorials for building your card idea library? Tutorials from the LovenStamps Archive are available for purchase in the LovenStampsCardMart on Etsy.
