Materials and Supplies
How to make this card:
Round both corners where your card opens. Most card-makers use corner punch rounders to do this. If you don't have one, you can still have rounded corners! Just use this useful tip!
Scour through your stuff for anything with a rounded corner like an image, a card you received, a coaster or whatever you can find. Place it over the corner you want to round, aligning its edges to your card. Using a pencil, trace the rounded corner.
Cut along the pencil mark. And there you go! A rounded corner without shelling any cash! :)
Adhere your image and sentiment onto the left half of your card. Foam tape works wonders in creating dimension!
Measure and cut your patterned paper so that it will cover the right half of your card.
Following the rounded corner of your card, cut away any excess paper.
Take your strip of cardstock or patterned paper and carefully run your decorative scissors along one of the strip's longer edges. If you don't have decorative scissors, simply leave the strip as is. :)
Using double-sided tape, adhere your strip along the edge of your patterned paper. Cover the edge by running a lace along it. Add in a bow with a brad/button/pearl/rhinestone at its center.
Take your butterfly image and position it on the upper left portion of your heart. Only glue the butterfly's body to your card. We need the wings free of any adhesive for the last step. Apply some glitter glue along the butterfly's body and set aside to dry. I usually leave it overnight to make sure it's all dried up. :)
Fold the butterfly's wings toward you for a three-dimensional effect. A beautiful finishing touch!
