Hello, crafters! Welcome to another exciting crafting tutorial with Christina. Today, we'll be exploring the enchanting world of easel cards using the delightful Butterfly Blossoms Card Creator Pack. These cards are not just a joy to create but also promise a stunning visual impact. So, let's dive into the creative process step by step and make two easel cards that will undoubtedly stand out in any collection.

Materials You'll Need:

  1. White cardstock
  2. Butterfly Blossoms Card Creator Pack
  3. Patterned paper
  4. Glue
  5. Inks
  6. Self-adhesive pearls
  7. Flowers (long stem roses)
  8. Hot glue gun
  9. Sentiment pack
  10. Coloured card strips
  11. Glitter

Step 1: Crafting the Card Base

Begin with a white cardstock, fold it in half, and choose a design from the Butterfly Blossoms Card Creator Pack to adorn the front.

Step 2: Adding a Decorative Top Piece

Cut a blank piece in half, cover it in paper, and embellish it with a filigree pattern. This piece completes the easel card's top section, ensuring it stands out when folded.

Step 3: Inside Decor

Utilise leftover pieces to decorate the card's inside. Add paper and filigree patterns, ensuring a seamless finish by inking the edges.

Step 4: Creating Stops

Prevent the easel cards from collapsing by creating stops using sentiments attached to coloured card strips. Trim and glue them strategically inside the card.

Step 5: Embellishing the Butterfly

Cut out butterflies from the patterned paper, add them to the filigree design, and bend the wings for a fluttering effect. Enhance with self-adhesive pearls along the body lines.

Step 6: Adding Flowers

Use hot glue to attach long stem roses, creating a beautiful cascade along the butterfly's body. Apply glue, add glitter for sparkle, and enjoy the dazzling result.

Step 7: Sentiment Finishing Touch

Choose sentiments from the pack, such as "Butterfly Kisses" and "Sending Happy Thoughts," and place them strategically on the card for a personalised touch.

Congratulations! You've successfully created two elegant easel cards that are not only visually stunning but also incredibly unique. The Butterfly Blossoms Card Creator Collection is now available at CraftStash, so be sure to get yours and let your creativity soar. Until next time, happy crafting!
