Screen Divider Card with Butterflies, A Fun Fold Card

I’d seen this card many times on Stampin’ Up sites as it’s an oldie but a goodie, as far as fun fold cards go.  I found the name of the punch you will use — it’s called a decorative label punch and Stampin’ Up made the one I used.

I used a crumb cake colored cardstock and used an old Stampin’ Up set called best of Butterflies for my stamping.

The cardstock measures 5 1/4″ tall by 11″ wide and score it on the 11″ length at 2 3/4″ and  5 1/2″ and one at 8 1/4″.  Take the decorative label punch and center it between one of your scores and the end of the card.  Put your punch inside up to the center where there is a point that protrudes on either side, and make sure it is perfectly centered and punch it.  Then fold one length of paper over, and line up your first punched spot as a guide, and punch there.  Do the same to the other two scores and your card is made.

Now all you need to do is decorate it.  I cut off-white cardstock, four pieces, 2 1/8″ x 4″ tall and Raspberry Ripple (I think) cardstock from Stampin’ Up, four pieces 2 3/8″ x 4 1/4″ tall to create layers.   I used a stamping tool and stamped two of my off-white panels at once.  I used Stampin’ Up Raspberry Ripple dye ink to stamp my butterflies.  I used Stabilo 68 markers and colored a little bit on my butterflies.  Some of the coloring I didn’t like, so had to stamp those butterflies over, so if you think you’re seeing things, you’re not.

I used two butterfly punches from Martha Stewart and punched some green butterflies and put some rhinestones on them.  After applying all of the panels, I realized that I put one on the front of the card when they should have only been placed on the inside….so I had to stamp another panel of butterflies.  These things happen.  Most people only put four decorated pieces in this card, but I wanted a front to my card, so made five.  You could still make four and then a fifth that you leave blank for writing space as well.  This is a really simple card to make and I hope you’ll give it a try.
