What a fun card! I have had a great number of people requesting the instructions for making Elizabeth McConner’s cute fund fold butterfly card. Well, here it is! I made my version a Christmas Card. The first view shows the cards standing the second view as folded and ready for an envelope. I decorated all four of the little diamond squares, leaving one of them without the DSP so I could sign the card and add a few words.
This design is so clever, and you can get two cards out of a standard piece of paper. This next view show the front of the card and second view shows the back of the card that I made.
The Inspiration card is by Elizabeth McConner who says she saw the card on Pinterest originally. Elizabeth is a newer member of my team, from Nevada City, California, Great Job Elizabeth!! You can reach Elizabeth at email@example.com
Here is the diagram of the scoring and folding of the card I promised.
