Interactive Pop-Up Butterfly Greeting Card

Interactive Pop-Up Butterfly Greeting Card

Hi there! Daniel West here! Thanks for joining me on the blog today!

Interactive cards have taken Pinterest and Instagram by storm. I have dipped my toes into the river just a bit with this butterfly card. The die set I used makes it a cinch especially when paired with great, heavy, beautiful cardstock from Cardstock Warehouse Paper Company.

Interactive Cardstock Paper Pop-Up Butterfly Greeting Card Supplies

To begin, you will need to gather these supplies:

  • Cardstock Warehouse Cardstock Papers in Grapesicle/Lavender, Purple and Amethyst
  • Butterfly Love Bundle and the Beautiful Butterfly Bundle from Concord & 9th.
  • Grape Crush, Sugared Lavender, Pixie Dust Inks from Catherine Pooler
  • Night Shift Embossing and Alabaster embossing powders from Brutus Monroe
  • Heat tool
  • Die-cutting machine
  • Paper trimmer
  • Scoring Tool
  • Stamping tool
  • Strong liquid adhesive

Follow these step-by-step directions to complete your card: 

  • Begin by cutting an 8.5 by 5.5” card base out of a sheet of Grapesicle Cardstock
  • Stamp the butterfly turnabout stamp out on the card base front using the three different violet ink colors. 
  • On the fourth turn, prep the cardstock with an anti-static powder tool and stamp it in clear ink.
  • Heat emboss the fourth turn clear image with Night Shift embossing powder.

  • Adhere the detailed die cut over the solid die cut with strong liquid adhesive.
  • Fold, connect and attach the pop-up mechanism to the back of the butterfly, then to the fold of the card base.
