Butterfly Pop-Up Card – #G45LightSide 

By Joanne Bain



“Hello G45er’s

Joanne here today to share a sweet spring card I created for the #G45Lightside challenge using the gorgeous Bloom collection. This collection sprung to mind straight away because of the soft pastel colours of this collection.


The front of the card was created by layering a couple of the Bloom Journaling and Ephemera cards and also some of the Bloom stickers.



The card base is one of the larger Bloom Journaling  and Ephemera cards which was folded in half. To the inside of the card I fussy cut some butterflies glued them together and made a pop up butterfly line to the top inside of the card.



Who doesn't love butterflies, and the colours of these ones are simply beautiful.



I have created a quick and simple step by step tutorial for this card.


Step 1. You will need this large Bloom Journaling & Ephemera Card and fold in half as shown.




Step 2. You will need 2 of the large Bloom Journaling & Ephemera cards as shown below.



Step 3. Cut out the larger butterflies as shown below and fold in half.




Step 4. Glue the tops of the wings only to create like a butterfly chain as shown below.




Step 5. Now attach to the inside of the card as shown below.




Step 6. Get one of the postage stamps from the sticker sheet and trim down to fit where the postage stamp goes as shown below.



Step 7. Get the smaller Bloom Journaling & Ephemera cards as shown.



Step 8. Trim away the outside border of the pink card as shown below.



Step 9. You will need the stickers as shown below.



Step 10. Now start layering the front of the card as shown below.
