Fun Folds

Free Tuesday Tutorial Oh Snap!

The Oh Snap stamp set is one to be enjoyed only for a short time if you need to order it.  It's around until June 30th and then gone.  It could be a few days before that.  They sometimes have a cut off date to guarantee stamp sets.  It's a really cute set!  Here's the card for the Free Tuesday Tutorial!  I did not create this card, but I love it!

Facebook Live 2.24.2021 Pop-up Card with Butterfly Brilliance

Today I want to share with you the card we made on Facebook Live this past Wednesday.  I used the soon to be available Butterfly Brilliance stamp set along with the Brilliant Wings dies.  They do come together as the Butterfly Brilliance bundle.  Look below for a link to a flyer about these items!  Here is the card front, but the surprise is on the inside!

Butterfly Brillance Pop Up Card by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Basic Black measuring 4 1/4 x 11, scored and folded at 5 1/2.

Finish the inside of the card first.  I decorated the 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White at the bottom.  I used the True Love black and white designer series paper.  I needed just a 3/4 x 4 piece of the dots and a 1/2 x 4 piece of the diagonal stripe.  Adhere so that a little of the diagonal shows along the top.  Add the whole piece to the bottom of the inside.

The saying is from the Happy Thoughts stamp set on page 28 of the Jan-June Mini.  Make sure you leave room for the inside mechanism when stamping.

The mechanism is also in Basic Black.  I think it looks better to match the card base color.  It measures 3 1/2 x 4 1/4.  Score at 3/4, 1 1/2, 2 1/4, 3 on the short side.  Fold and burnish your folds all in the same direction.  We are making a box.  Add glue or Tear & Tape to the smallest area.  Adhere to make the box.  Watch the video for a good tip.

You want the seam of the box to be hidden in the seam of the card fold so that it won't show.  Add adhesive to the bottom of the box and add to the card.  Get it as close to the fold as possible but you do want it to be able to fold.  Now add adhesive to the box side that goes to the back of the card front.  Simply fold the card closed to adhere this.  You might want to watch the video is make it more clear.

For the front of the card, I used the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper.  Remember that Sale-a-Bration ends on Sunday, February 28th.  If you want this paper don't wait!  Cut the paper to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Stamp the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Bermuda Bay on this paper.  Use the Stamparatus.  I have some tips on the video.

The dotted paper is from the True Love Designer Series Paper.  Cut a strip that is 1 1/4 x 5 3/8.  Cut the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes dies using the diagonal stripe paper.  Use the Brilliant Wings dies to cut the detailed butterfly from Bermuda Bay card stock.  Add with dimensionals on the body of the butterfly.

The saying is from the Punch Party stamp set (from Sale-a-Bration if you spend $300).  I got the shape from the Messages dies from page 35 of the Jan-June Mini.  Stamp in Memento Black ink.  Put a 1/2 inch strip of the Oh So Ombre paper behind the saying.

To decorate the pop-up of the card, stamp the butterflies from Butterfly Brilliance on the circle paper from Oh So Ombre and on a Basic White piece.  Cut using the dies from Brilliant Wings.  They cut all the butterflies at one time.  That's pretty neat.

When adding the pieces remember that you don't want anything to stick out from the sides.  You want to be careful of any glue that could make the card unable to open.  You can make the pieces more sturdy by putting glue dots where needed.

So here is the video.  I hope it makes my directions more clear.


The Butterfly Brilliance bundle will be in the new upcoming 2021-2022 annual catalog.  There are some beautiful designer papers that are available as well.  Find the flyer here.  These items are available for demonstrators now and for everyone March 2 through May 3rd.  The bundle will be available later, but the designer paper is while supplies last.
