A Butterfly Birthday

I wanted to make another W-Fold style card (first one ever made has not been shared yet) to show at my June 26 class.  I want to give my gals another idea since we'll be making one in class.

I learned a couple things in making this card as I made it more complicated. I used Fun Stampers Journey's Small Things stamp set.  But instead of coloring the butterflies I stamped what I needed on assorted print papers.  I linked those that are available.

I was placing my stamps in selected spots on the print paper, it was not random.

Here you can see the placement of the butterflies inside. I like how they look on and off the center strip.

Here you can see the W fold. But, I learned that to layer the print piece over the solid piece was just too thick.  I had trouble getting a good fold and with paper cracking.

My folds were not even and the center one protruded just a bit beyond the closed card. Not good but then probably wouldn't be noticed by whoever got this card.

This fold cracked.  I tried just a super thin line from my Zig glue pen and hopefully that will help.

I hope this style of card isn't too difficult for my gals.  I already have 8 signed up and I barely put out my newsletter Monday!
