Pop Up butterflies cards with Avery Elle + video!


Today I have a new video for you! I'm featuring the new Avery Elle Butterflies stamp set and coordinating dies at the AE blog and I made two cards.

I use a pair of cool techniques that I totally wanted to share with you so here it is! I hope you like it :)

I made two cards based on the same design and playing with different color combos: One with warm tones and the other with cool tones.

I colored both backgrounds with Distress inks, I love the watercolor look <3 And I finished the cards with pop-up butterflies that can go flat by mail but will recover their shapes once they get out of the envelope :)

I added something in the inside of the cards too!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, have a great start of the week!
