This Butterfly Birthday Card is layered mandala style to make a colorful and dimensional card. You can make it by gluing the top pieces together. Or for more dimension you can put together the front with foam tape. See it done both ways below. I love this card and this is the card I gave to Cordelia last week for her 18th birthday.
This card will thrill anyone on their birthday and they will be so happy you remembered them! And it fits into an A7 envelope for mailing.
You will need:
- Cardstock for the base
- Various Cardstock scraps
- Foam Tape

Paper Selection for Layered Butterfly Birthday Card
For this layered card I like pastels. The pink needs to be two sided because a little of it shows through, but everything else can be one sided. Patterns would work for any piece. Just make sure the pen writes on it legibly.
Cutting the Layered Butterfly Birthday Card
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. This card contains lots of writing and drawing. I used a black marker pen. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? You can see the trick here. I used a font called AR Decode and you can get it for free various places online. I really like this cursive font a lot.
