Card Tutorial: Hello Origami Butterflies!

Origami has long been one of my paper crafting favorites. No wonder I'm loving the origami trend in crafting and home decor these days. One collection inspired by origami is Origami Love by Richard Garay. From papers to stamps to dies, this collection has a lot of fun elements to love. That's also the collection I used to make the butterfly card above. If you wish to make this card, follow along. Let's start by looking at the supplies.

Hello Butterfly Stamp/Die Set
Origami Love Printed paper

Captivating Coral True Color Fusion Ink
Amaze machine
Cardstock: Golden Glow, Odacious Orange, Candy Apple,

Stamp the butterflies on cardstock using the Hello Butterfly Stamp/Die Set and Berry Black ink.

Die-cut the stamped butterflies using Amaze machine.

Stack the butterflies as shown.

Trim cardstock to 8.5" x 5.5". Fold in half to make 4.25" x 5.5" card.

Attach the stacked butterflies to the card, leaving the wings free.
