Gatefold Butterfly Pop Up using Stampin’ Up! Products

Hi, it’s Jay here with a new video tutorial on how to create a Gatefold Butterfly Pop Up card!

I used the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set, Butterfly Beauty Dies and the mechanism from Cuckoo Clock Dies for this fun and interactive card.

One Sheet Wonder Technique

The Beauty Abounds stamp set was ideal for a one sheet wonder technique to create my own DSP. This was achieved by stamping different designs randomly in Soft Sea Foam, Smoky Slate and Pool Party inks on Whisper White cardstock. I then trimmed to size for the opening panels of the gatefold card.

Gatefold Butterfly Pop Up Video Tutorial

Before I show you the inside, have a look at how the card was put together with our video tutorial below.

Inside The Card

As you saw in the video, I left the card pretty bare inside, ready to be decorated even more for when we needed it. Well it turned out that we did! I took my own advice and added the sentiment, Silver Glimmer die cuts and Wink of Stella. So this is how it turned out…
