Butterfly Easel Love Note

These butterfly easel cards have been floating around the internet.  A stamping friend saw one and requested it as a project for a class.  I think it turned out darling, and they were a hit with everyone who attended my class!

It may look a bit tricky to put together, but basically the back & bottom butterflies are a made from a piece of card stock, folded and run through the big shot, except the fold sits just below the top edge of the wing tips, so that the two butterflies remain attached.  Another full butterfly of the same size is attached to the front at the base (lower wings folded under) so that the front one is free to sit up.  A smaller butterfly is layered on top after embossing both front butterflies with the Finial Press embossing folder.
