Butterfly Birthday Card

Yesterday, I shared with you the card for one of my nieces who celebrated her birthday this month. For the other one, I made this card! She turned 2 on the 11th!

Items used:

  • 3 different shades of pink cardstock
  • white cardstock
  • 3D foam squares
  • ATG adhesive 
  • adhesive gemstones 
  • Happy Birthday sentiment stamp
  • Storybook Cricut cartridge 
  • stickles
  • Ink
  • scalloped 2 inch circle punch 
I started by cutting out the butterfly's. I cut 2 in the darkest pink at 6 inches. For the second layer, I cut the butterfly at 5 3/4 inches, I attached this later to the front of the card with ATG adhesive. I cut the smallest butterfly at 4.5 inches. I attached this butterfly with 3D foam square adhesive. I added stickles to the antenna's to give them some sparkle. I then cut a scalloped punch from the white cardstock and stamped it with the Happy Birthday sentiment from PBD and inked the edges. I also added the adhesive gemstones to the front of the card for some added bling.

To make a back flap for the card, I took the second large butterfly and trimmed off the top wings just blow the antenna's and secured it to the front flap with ATG adhesive.


  1. I love the butterfly card. I would like to know what cricut you used. I have just purchased the personnel (baby bug) cricut. And am not sure how many cards can be made with it. Most seem to be made with the expression cricut. Can I use the personnel cricut to make a card like this. I would like to see the card makers tell the viewer which cricut they used, Thanks love your work.

  2. I used my Expression, but it would be possible to make a very similar card with your personnel cricut. With the personal cricut being able to cut 6 x 12 paper, you might be able to even cut this card at the same sizes. If not just cut the larges cut (card base) at the largest that it will allow you and then go down from there for the other layers. I hope this helps!


  3. card is very cute in butterfly shape.shades of pink color used in it look fabulous.
