Butterfly Pivot Birthday Card

A lady from church asked if I would make a birthday card for her sister, so this is what I came up with.
I used the Elizabeth Craft Design Butterfly Pivot Card, along with the Butterfly Accessory Dies set, for the main pivoting butterflies.

At the side of the card, I used Happy Birthday dies from Marianne Designs, and smaller butterflies from the Tim Holtz 'Butterfly Frenzy' Decorative Strip.
I used White Opal Liquid Pearls for the smaller butterfly bodies, and added some swirls from the Tim Holtz 'Festive Greenery' Decorative Strip.

For the card front I used some sheer ribbon and an old metal butterfly charm from my stash.

Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge - Pop-Up Christmas Tree Card

 Hi all! It's Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge day again, and the theme this month is 'Trees, Please!'
For my card I used the Christmas Tree Pop-Up die set - I absolutely love how this set creates a goregous pop-up tree so easily!

The whole tree folds down flat - it's so clever!
I decorated the tree with red Glitter Dots from Elizabeth Craft Designs, and the star and tree base dies all come in the Christmas Tree Pop-Up set.

You can see the construction more in the picture below.
 The patterned paper is from October Afternoon, and I used a border die from the Sizzix Triple Circle Flip-its Card dies set.
I used two nesting circle dies for around the base of the tree, and cut the gold card circle in half before sticking it down, so that there would be less bulk when the card folds.
I used a fineline glue applicator to stick down the Christmas words, which are from Karen's Word Set 3 - Holiday die set.

For the card front, I used the same scalloped border die as inside the card, and hand cut a couple of ornaments from the patterned paper.
