One of my very dear friends, Sherryl Bigelow sent me a card using this technique, I’m not really sure what to call it except super cool. I’ve used the Classic Label punch to cut out a rectangle for the Butterfly to fit through so when you open the card, magically the butterfly is on the inside.  I was so tickled when I got the card I just had to copy it, thanks so much for making my day Sherryl!!! Sherryl used a smaller butterfly that has been discontinued so when I put this in an envelope I’ll fold down the wing on the right side so it will fit.

I just love the new Designer Series paper, the 6 x 6 Garden Impressions paper is gorgeous and this is one of the selected DSP that qualifies for the buy 3 get 1 free sale for the month of July so be sure to stock up.
