Hi Everyone! It’s a butterfly spinner card! This is the last week to get Sale-A-Bration’s Botanical Butterflies Designer Paper. It’s FREE with a $50 purchase.
What’s great about this paper is some of sheets line up with the Butterfly Duet Punch perfectly. Or you could fuzzy cut the butterflies and still make this card!
You could replicate this project after Sale-a-Bration ends with the Butterfly Gala Bundle (stamp set and punch) and other Designer Paper of your choice 🙂
What makes it a spinner card is layering mirror images in-between thread or in this case, fishing line! And then prior to closing the card you twist and twist and twist the image and close. When opened, the butterfly spins and twirls!
