Butterfly Easel Card using yourt Ecraft Machine

Hi all today I thought that I would share with you a project that I made a few months ago. I made this for my MIL for Mothers Day, but it could be used for many occasions and is so easy to make.

Scrolls Frame Image from Ecraft.
Fundamentals 2
2 x A3 Centura Pearl Pastels (lilac) cardstock from Crafters Companion
1 x A4 Centura Pearl Darks (Purple) cardstock from Crafters Companion
2 sheets of Satin Finish paper from Crafters Companion
Crafters Companion Spring and Summer CD
Crafters Companion Autumn Winter CD
1 x Printable Light card white by Crafters Companion
Crafters Companion Stick and Spray
Quickie Glue Pen
Bone folder

Bring the image onto your mat and separate the two images. Copy and paste the Scroll Frame and put onto a new mat. Going back to the mat with both images on, delete your scroll frame image and working with the base image click onto the Aspect Ratio button and alter the size to 6.00" wide by 6" high. Now with your chosen cardstock cut out three of these.

Working still with the base image again making sure your Aspect Ratio button is on alter the size to 5.75" by 5.75" and cut two of these from your contrasting paper. I used the Crafters Companion Spring and Summer CD Design 4 Colour 4.

Now go back to the mat with the scroll frame image and again ensure that the Aspect Ratio is on alter the size to 5.75" by 5.75". Alter the draw feature to cut, your image should now turn from purple to black. Cut out from your cardstock.
Taking one of your card bases and using the Ultimate Pro score the lines as shown. Now fold your score lines and burnish.
Glue one of your paper bases to one of your unscored card bases
Taking your card base covered with your paper glue the smallest scored section as shown.
Using your Quickie glue pen draw around the edge of your remaining paper base and glitter, glue this to your last card base.
To make your Butterfly embellishment for your card take Fundamentals 2, image 12 and bring it onto your mat. Make sure that the Aspect Ratio is on and alter the size to 3.50" high by 3.62" wide. I used a darker cardstock for this. Cut out
For the top layer again using Fundamentals 2 but this time image 11, resize again to 3.50" high by 3.62" wide. I cut this from printable light card and used the Crafters Companion Autumn Winter CD, design 3 colour 3. Cut this out and using your Quickie Glue pen glitter the top butterfly.
Using your Ultimate Pro score both butterflies as shown and fold to give dimension.

Take your scroll frame and spray on the back with Crafters Companion Stick and Spray and place on your card topper. Decorate with gems.
Glue the spine of your top butterfly and stick to the butterfly base, add gems. Using the same two butterfly images and using the same card and patterned card cut out two more butterflies at the size of 1.93" wide by 2.00" high, glitter and add gems, then layer together.
Attach the largest butterfly to the centre of your topper and the smallest butterfly to the bottom of your easel card to create the stopper.
Thank you for popping over to my blog, hope you enjoy making this as much as I did
