G’day everyone.

Today I’m making a Butterfly Birthday card, using some beautiful paper that I found in the We R Memory Keepers Type Cast paper pad. These are butterflies embossed with Rose Gold Foil and they are absolutely gorgeous. However, I don’t have any embossing powder in Rose Gold and had to improvise.


Supplies used: –

  • White Card Stock
  • Black Card Stock
  • We R Memory Keepers “Type Cast” Paper Pad (Butterfly’s)
  • Embossing Folder (Dots)
  • Black Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • VersaMark Ink Pad
  • VersaMark Ink Pen
  • Happy Birthday Clear Cling Stamp
  • VersaFine Black ink
  • WRMK Stamping Platform
  • Label Dies from AliExpress
  • Double-sided Adhesive tape
  • Butterfly metal dies from AliExpress
  • Black embossing powder
  • Vellum
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • PVA Glue

Card Measurements *

  1. 21cm x 14.8cm White Card Stock (Scored at 10.5cm) to make side folding card
  2. 5cm x 5cm Black Card-stock
  3. 5cm x 4.5cm Butterfly paper from WRMK*
  4. 5cm x 10.5cm Black Card-stock

  6. 5cm x 2cm White and Black card stock for Happy Birthday Label
  7. 12cm x 6cm Black Card-stock (for Butterfly’s)

Putting the card together: –

  1. Die cut the butterflies out of black card-stock (7*)
  2. With the metal die, trace the butterfly onto the vellum and fussy cut out. You’ll need two of these.
  3. Emboss the piece of white cardstock (5*) through the Sizzix Bigshot
  4. With the VersaMark ink pad, apply on a 43 degree angle straight onto the embossed card edge.
  5. Dip each siding into some black embossing powder
  6. Heat the embossing powder, using your heat gun until powder starts to shine.
  7. Using the VersaMark Pen, apply to the edge of the vellum butterflies and dip this into the embossing powder.
  8. Heat the embossing powder, using your heat gun until powder starts to shine.
  9. Using PVA glue, put a bit on the back of the black butterflies body and stick this to the vellum. Put aside to dry.
  10. Using the WRMK Stamping platform, stamp the Happy Birthday Sentiment onto the white cardstock, (6*) and apply some clear embossing powder straight away.
  11. Heat the embossing powder, using your heat gun until powder starts to shine.
  12. Using the label tags, cut the white Happy Birthday out in the smaller die, and the Black card-stock (6*) in a bigger size. This will then be mounted together.
  13. Mount the Butterfly paper (3*) to the black cardstock (2*) with double-sided adhesive tape.
  14. Mount the Embossed cardstock to the black cardstock (4*) with double-sided adhesive tape.
  15. Mount 13 onto 14 with double-sided adhesive tape.
  16. Mount the label tags on top of the butterfly strip.
  17. Glue the vellum butterflies on top of the butterfly’s.
  18. Finally using double-sided adhesive tape, stick this to the White cardstock (1*)

Card is now finished to give to someone special.
