Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts Butterfly Window 13th Birthday Card

 For some strange reason, I spent most of today having a massive spring clean of all the kitchen cupboards, and my craft stuff - not at all what I had planned! I was supposed to make a birthday card for my niece, but ended up doing it in 15 minutes I had while tea was cooking... I love how Karen Burniston's Butterfly Window insert (in the Square Pop 'n Cuts base die) makes for such a fast card!
 I used the Edge & Scroll Bigz die to make the bright pink fill-in bit. (I folded the pink cardstock in half, and put the folded edge along the inside of the straight cutting edge, so it makes a single folded piece the right size.) I also used the Butterflies & Labels Bigz die, to cut the blue butterfly layers.
Sorting out my craft stash today, reminded me of some things I had, including the Bazzill edges (pink scallops), various brads, and very old paper and fabric flowers! And talking of old, I used some Sizzix Alphabars Doodle Tag Numbers, for the '13'. I've had those things donkey's years!
The alphabet is a new one which I love, from Die-namics 'By The Letters'.

Some of products used:



  1. Love it! So bright and cheerful. That's a really cool alphabet, too!

  2. What a cheery birthday card - I always enjoy seeing how you personalize your cards. That makes them extra special!
    Cheers, Karen
