Sharon has covered the card with a paper from Kaiser (note how she's made the best of it being two sided at the front), and embellished with wooden buttons, split pins and gold peel-off stickers. This would make a lovely card for a young girl - either to give or for her to make for her friends.

|MULTIFOLD LAYERED CARD|
I've used a sewing theme for my embellishments which include stamped and fussy cut images, real buttons and stamped paperclay. Because I have added a fair bit of weight to the front of the card, it tends to want to flatten out, and fall over. To stop this happening I've threaded some twine through a button at the front and tied it behind. This adds to the overall design theme, but if you had a more delicate theme you could use gold metallic thread, or make slotted pieces of the cardboard to the sides.
As usual, I have used a card from Regal Craft as the base - in this case, an ivory single fold.

|BUTTERFLY ANNIVERSARY CARD|
The leaf border and greeting have been sewn on using part of a pickpoint pattern. Embossed lines have added subtle detail (I used a score board for a nice deep impression). The butterflies are from a die-cut Sparklelight sheet, I've raised the wings of the bottom one to add dimension. Six little rhinestones in two groups of three finish the card.
The base is a plain black singe fold from Regal Craft Cards, which is also where the other "ingredients" were sourced.
I've added a purple insert to pick up the colour of the rhinestones, thread and lower butterfly.

|SWING CARD FROM REGAL CRAFT CARDS|
The card is pre-cut and scored so you can get to the best bit (decorating) straight away! I've used some specialty paper from Christina Re as well as plain (Kaiser Ballerina) embossed with a Kaiser folder. Numbers and backing were also die-cut and the card was finished with some adhesive pearls and some lace from Green Tara. A peel-off sticker features on the back of the panel, which swings around when you pull the sides of the card apart.
Its a super card, but surprisingly effective!!
