Hi everyone,

I have a Butterfly Pivot card to share with you today, which I made recently for a demo I was doing earlier in the month. This card uses the Butterfly Pivot Card designed by designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs.

This is the first time I have used Shimmer Sheetz and I love the look of it. Here I used the Yellow Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz to decorate my card. First I used it to die cut the butterfly and I also embossed with an embossing folder and then sanded the embossed areas so the white core shows through and adhered it to the edge of my card.

The “Hello” is also a die available from Elizabeth Craft Designs.


Here is the inside of my card. As you can see I added the Yellow Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz again to both edges of my card as I did on the front.

The “Best Wishes”  is a die available from Elizabeth Craft Designs


And finally a view from the back of my card.

Paper: Black; Green; DP
Dies:  Butterfly Pivot Card Die – Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs; Hello; Best Wishes – Elizabeth Craft Designs
Other: Yellow Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz; Sizzix/Karen Burniston Swirls Embossing Folder

I love this and tried it, but I can't seem to get the butterflys to be cut thru for the most part. What is the sandwich set up? I'm using a big shot. Thanks!
