Signature Collection by Sara Davies - Tutorial: Butterfly Aperture Card

In case you didn’t see it, we shared all the news about Crafters Companion's  Sara Davies upcoming Signature collection here on our News feed at the start of the month.  Well now you can check it all out in our very special 'Sneak Peek' section of our coming soon items right here online.   We are REALLY excited about it, and can’t wait to start sharing things with you!

So we thought we'd start with a quick and easy tutorial direct from Sara using just some of these very special Limited Edition designs from her premiere collection launch! – this card is perfect for so many occasions and you can re-create it in no time!


Here’s what Sara did for this one:

Step 1: Trim Centura Pearl card to 6 1/2″ square. Matt & layer it on to a 7″x7″ white card blank (Sara uses Sheena’s Stamping card – marvellous stuff!). Next, trim the patterned card to 6 2/8″ x 6 2/8″ and affix to card front with Collall All-Purpose glue.


Step 2: Trim another piece of white card to 6 2/8″ x 6 2/8″. Die-cut the Butterfly Dance die on to the upper left side of card to create an aperture.


Step 3: Emboss the piece you just created (the aperture card) using the Butterfly Corner embossing folder and mount on to card front using our foam pads. (HOW fantastic does that embossing look? Love the deep texture these new folders create!)

Step 4: Stamp your sentiment onto white card, matt & layer onto Centura Pearl and affix to card front.


Step 5: Apply Crystals or pearls embellishments to butterfly centre and attach to card front to finish.

It’s that simple, and you’ll have an elegant handmade card in no time!
