Cut@Home Blog - Scrapbooking & Card Making Ideas

Marianne Design Butterfly Card

Spring is FINALLY showing its face here in Utah, and to go along with the warming weather, I wanted to share my Marianne Design butterfly card that I made to celebrate! I can never get enough butterfly dies and this one is gorgeous! I also like how big it is. It really pops on a card or layout.








I also really liked the Blossom embossing folder by Crafts Too, and it worked really well with the butterfly. I ran my A2 card through the folder first, then took my ink pad and lightly ran it over the embossed area to help it stand out.

Here all of the products I used:

LR0113- Marianne Design Creatable Die Butterfly 1

658954- Sizzix Thinlits Borders

AF146- Hero Hues Shadow Ink Soft Pool

S5-159- Spellbinders GoldĀ  Labels Four

CTFD3048- Crafts Too Blossom

2160- Want2Scrap Mother of Pearl Rhinestones

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

    Pretty card, I love butterflies too, I must have at least 10 different dies, if not more, so they feature on lots of my cards.

  • I’m glad I’m not the only one with an abundance of butterfly dies! To me, a butterfly is a delicate magical creature, with enchanting beauty and grace. I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like butterflies!

  • Spencer

    I like this blog. The way the publisher / scrapbooker shares the wealth of knowledge about tips and tricks that make it more fun and full filling to create your own heart felt designs for whatever occasion it may be. I think it is impressive that this piece was able to be accomplished with so few materials and at such a low cost.

  • Thank you! That is the great thing about die cutting and paper crafting. Once you have a few supplies, you can create beautiful projects at minimal cost. Dies and folders can be used over and over and will coordinate with other products to make your projects unique!

    My friend’s daughter created a personalized birthday card for her mom’s birthday. Mom went ton to tell me that it made her tear up. She said it was the best present of all the things she received. This is a fine example of the joy a personalized card or photo album can bring. It just makes the message much more meaningful.

  • Steven

    In this age where so many people rely on everything digital (e.g. smart phones, flat screens) it is good to rediscover the joys of producing something organic for a loved one / a special occasion. For whatever reason, when persons receive something tangible, it means a whole lot more. It is more real, more heart-felt. Even though die cutting is produced via a digital machine, the result is organic and that makes it special.

  • That is an awesome example! Thanks for sharing!

  • Agreed! When something is hand made from the heart, it is a keepsake, not disposable.

  • Gilbert

    It is quite eye catching how this greeting card has such texture. People are so used to seeing flat, one dimensional cards (usually printed illustrations) that when the recipient sees something like a cutout that pops up or, as in the case of this car, a textured card, it becomes memorable. You could say that this card has more feeling – literally, because of the texture when you hold it.

  • Russel

    I would really like to see more examples of hand crafted, die cut designs. These kinds of examples can be inspiring to anyone. My sister’s birthday is coming up on the 14 th of this month and I might just design a personalized greeting card for her with a personal message. The only thing I’m missing to give it that special touch is a die cutting printer. That may be my next purchase.

  • Steven

    If you’re the type who likes standing out, then you should not just use die cut printers for personal greeting cards, but also for die-cut business cards. What’s different is their unique and attractive shapes. When you make your own business cards, you’ll have several options available for die-cut shapes. Why not get your cards to rise above a sea of dull, unimaginative business cards by printing your own cards in full color – as appointment reminders, mini-resumes, portfolios, to name a few.

  • Albert

    We are going to be making Mother’s day cards in the youth group at church this year and this is something that would look good on those cards. You have done a great job here and I am looking forward to showing this to the kids. You can use this with any color paper right so that they aren’t all the same thing.

  • Edwin

    There are several scrapbook die cutting machines on the market that you can use right at home. I did some searching on Amazon and found that they range in price from $70 to $500. Clearly, this is the expensive route for those who like all the fancy gadgets. Different types of die cut machines have different functions. However, it is impressive what Marcie accomplished at such a low price.

  • William

    You have such creative ideas here and I am always happy to see when you post something new. I can not tell you how much money I have spent over the years collecting things that would help me make some of the things I have seen on your site. Please keep posting new stuff, are you on pinterest as well? Thank you for the work you do.

  • Thank you for your comments! You are right about texture giving more interest to a card and making it more memorable.

  • If you are looking for a die cutter that will work with a printer as well, you may want to look at the Silhouette Cameo or Portrait. These do not actually print, but you can print your designs on your printer, then cut them with the die cutting machine! Very nice!

  • Great idea!

  • Thanks for your comments! This would be a great example for a Mother’s Day card that kids could do. You can use any color pallet! Let the kids run wild with their imaginations!

  • Personal die cutting can be pricy, but it is more of an investment. Once you make the investment of a machine and dies, you can use them over and over to create endless projects! You can also acquire products as fast or slow as you choose! There are also so many options to choose from. We really try to make this hobby affordable for our customers!

  • Thank you for your comments! We do our best in offering our customers products that will enable them to create fantastic projects at reasonable prices. We are also on Pintrest!

  • Lee

    This is great and it looks so delicate, is it made out of paper or plastic of some kind? Can this die make more than this design or do you have to have multiple to make other things? I am thinking about starting a make your own greeting card shop and this would be perfect in there. Please let me know more if you can otherwise I will just keep digging.

  • Kenneth

    There are many events that are perfect for archiving your memories, and what better occasion to do so than your own wedding. Whether you had a small, intimate wedding with only a few guests present, or opted for a large celebration with everyone you know, and perhaps some you didn’t, there are plenty of items like the ones used here that you could include in your wedding scrapbook, and many ways to arrange them.

  • Miguel

    What other designs to you have dye’s for? I am not much of a butterfly lover but this is very pretty and the possibilities for it are really endless when you think about it. Keep up the good work and please keep posting your new stuff this has been great and I am shopping for Christmas gifts already so please keep it coming.

  • There is only one design per die. This is cut from card stock, but you can use paper, velum, thin chipboard, fabric, wool felt or other thin materials.

  • You are absolutely right! Your wedding is a very special occasion that you want to scrapbook to cherish for years to come! Dies are a great way to embellish a wedding album!

  • We have dies for just about any occasion or theme you can think of! If you are looking for a particular theme, you can search by Theme, or you can search by brand/category. We carry dies from several different manufacturers of all sizes and shapes!
