Freebie “Die-cut Style” Butterflies

I have just uploaded the July Freebie for All Newsletter Subscribers!  Yep… they are free if you are a Subscriber to the Newsletter.  You can sign up for free and you will gain instant access to all the previous freebies too (there is a link in every newsletter).  So hello to all my subscribers – I hope you like the downloable gift this month.


Anyway, inspired by a page full of die-cut Butterflies from K&Co which I was lucky enough to receive from a freind recently, I decided to create a set of die-cut style shapes from my latest Collection of papers.  I say die-cut style because, obviously, they are ready “to be” cut out!

These Butterflies and Hearts have been “cut” from the Colourful Beauty Collection of 12 hybrid papers, (which also has a free bonus paper in the pack) and one of the free addon papers (from last month).


With 8 different Butterflies and 2 different Hearts, they can be used on many projects. The delicate colours of the papers lend themselves to baby, feminine and whimsical cards and scrapbook pages.

I had a quick go with layering three butterflies, one paper, one vellum and another acetate, and here is the finished item…


The transparent paper and acetate don’t photograph well, but this would make a nice topper for a card, or gift box, don’t you think?


Here is another shot of the butterfly… the two bottom layers are the same butterfly, but the top is a contrasting one.   I used PVA glue on the body of the butterfly to adhere them all

Here is a picture showing the three layers more clearly.


I hope you enjoy your freebie… don’t forget you can sign up for the newsletter HERE.

    I am new to paper crafting. I love these butterflies. I really like the three layers. I have not used an acetate paper. I do want to try this. Thank you for sharing.
