Butterfly easel and spinner card combo
Two posts today! I was just too excited to wait till the end of my scheduled post run to share this. This Spinner Go Large one first, and then the French Foliage recessed card after, so scroll down when you've finished reading this!
I love the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz dies and the Big Shot makes it so easy to cut multi images all at once. I wanted the butterflies to have some movement, so I expanded on the spinner card and went BIG! So the aperture is 3 3/4" in the middle to enable the butterflies to spin. The finished card measures 5" square and the mats inside measure 4 3/4" square.
I spun the butterflies so you could see them from a different perspective here.
This is the inside of the card.
A side view so you can see how it folds.
