Pop-Up Cards and Sponged Butterflies

Pop-Up Cards -  the butterflies are attached to strips of clear Window Sheet and appear to be floating on air. 

Start with 2 pieces of card stock - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Score each along one of the short lengths at 3/8 inches.

 Apply a piece of Sticky Strip along the 3/8 inch tab you just created.

Cut 4 strips of Window Sheet about 1/4 inch wide and varied lengths.  These are not adhered to the card stock here - just laying on it so you can see them better.

 To make the butterflies - sponge Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White card stock. 

 Sponge Melon Mambo in a 'V' around the Daffodil Delight, overlapping some on the edge.

 Using black StazOn ink, stamp the small butterfly design over the ink sponged areas.   This is not exact so each butterfly may have a little different look.   Punch using the small butterfly punch.

 Adhere one butterfly to a strip of Window Sheet.  Set the butterfly at an angle.

 Adhere a second butterfly over the back of the first -lining it up exactly. 

 Line up the strips as desired and attach them to the sticky strip on one of the pieces of card stock.

 Match up the tabs on the two pieces of card stock and adhere, covering the ends of the window sheet strips

 Decorate the card front as desires.  I made several more butterflies to decorate my card.

When you open the card, the butterflies are there to greet you.   You can see some more ideas for pop-up cards here.
