See Through Butterfly Card

Hello, everyone! I'm back from a week of vacation and it feels great to get back in to my craft room! I have a bunch of cards to share with you, but lets start with one that I made about a month ago! My county fair has buildings to showcase various arts and crafts, so I always enter my cards. There are certain categories, so I usually make cards with the fair in mind. I used a see-through card technique that Jennifer McGuire shared a few months ago to make a rainbow butterfly card! If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen a little peek of this card! Guess what?! It won first place!

Looking at the card it looks like just a regular card. But the whole front panel is see through! I colored and cut out all of my vines and butterflies and glued them together to create the front of my card. There's a score line at the top so that it can open.

It's so fun! I added a folded piece of typing paper to the inside so that there's a place to write a message.

I made this card using a technique from Jennifer McGuire. If you want to learn how to make it for yourself she has an awesome video! Visit her blog by clicking here!
