Z fold butterfly card

I belong to a group of stampers that meet once a month at Urbandale Library. Anne taught us how to make this butterfly card. It is all Stampin'Up!, but uses retired Parisian Breeze specialty DSP. The technique to make the butterfly cutout is to fold the front of the cardstock in half then center on the butterfly and fold it out flat. Put the cutting pad only to the fold and run through the Bigshot. Voila, it cuts only half of the butterfly. We then used the perfect polka dots folder on only the folded part to add the dots. Add butterflies and embellish inside and out. What a fun card. I tried it with the top note die as well. Watch for a card using that.
