Card Cover 5

Hi there!

I have a new Card Cover for you today and I have given you the digital sentiment I used for my card but of course you could use your own, today’s card cover has a Butterfly design. The wings on each Butterfly don’t quite meet up so they stay in place, the wings can be bent upwards to create dimension and to give a peak at the colour below :)

Today’s card cover makes for a super quick and easy card. Simply cut the 2 layers provided in contrasting colours, pop a sentiment behind the window, adhere to a card base then bend your wings slightly and you’re done.


I’ve been at the hot foiler for my sentiment again, I used silver this time :)

    I like the hot foiler! I’ve not seen this…looks interesting! From what I came up with in a search looks like an expensive machine. Are there personal ones I’m not seeing that would be cheaper?

    As always, thanks for sharing!

    Hi there,

    I love all your files. I think I have almost all off your free cutting files. They are great. Thank you so much for all you do.
    But I especially love this one with the pop up butterfly wings. I hope we will see more of these with different kind of butterflies, dragonflies, birds, etc.

    Looooooove them. Thanks again.

    Do you have a post somewhere on how you use the hot foiler? I could not find it.

    Lovely card, Bird! Thank you for sharing. I have the same foiler as you do that I bought a long time ago and only used it a few times. Now I need to bring it out again and start using it. So many fun toys! LOL Thanks for the inspiration!

    Love this card, two effects on one card is wonderful. With a different sentiment, it will be a beautiful Mother’s Day card. Thank you.

    FabUlous once again – regards hot foiler – I have one that was on Create and craft a while back – lives in my cupboard as found it did not always foil well, may have to get it back out again – think was around £60 when I bought it also think the company was Letseret (not sure on the spelling of that) from memory !!

      I did some reading around and it seems that the toner from the laser printer needs to be really black so I set my printer to its highest setting and I used the heavy setting on the foiler, it seems to work on mine. Also I read somewhere that multi colour laser printers arent as good as black and white ones.

    Hi, not sure where to put this. Somewhere I read that someone had asked you about doing your cards in the ScanNCut format. I just wanted to give you a heads up that on the ScanNCut Canvas online you can import SVG files and convert them to the SNC file name.

    So lovely! I used this for my mom’s birthday card yesterday, with a foil-printed cardstock background and a birthday sentiment, of course. She loved it. Thank you so much for your generosity with these cut files!
