15 Minute Wonders-Butterflies, Bamboo and Birthdays!

These cards take longer to blog than to make!
This is a Quietfire digital cut file Butterfly Gatefold Card in the Silhouette Store.
We always include instructions if needed right with the file so you can read it before you purchase .

Here it is on the mat
The card is cut from black box store card stock and the wing backs out of orange.
I folded two pieces of joss paper and used a three hole pamphlet stitch to attach them to the card.

One minute left!
The Happy Birthday Plain and Simple was on the block!  
Stamped in VersaFine Onyx- go easy on the ink on this paper it is very absorbent.

Cut and go!
On the Mat
The file is Bamboo Card.
The backing is glitter mulberry paper and I ran a gold ink pad around the edges!
The Happy Birthday is from the same new set.


To see what you can do with more time hop over to Yogi's blog.

More views of the Butterfly card.
Without a glue dot to hold it closed.
The pages- plenty of room to journal and add photos or a gift card!

What are you waiting for?
Comment and Questions always welcomed!


  1. Beautiful cards, Robyn! The butterfly is stunning!

  2. Both cards are gorgeous Robyn. I can't get over how quickly the Cameo lets us make cards. Sometimes I feel like I'm cheating for lack of design angst!

  3. These are stunning! I especially love the butterfly card! I am going to have to get the cut file so I can make some of these! I have a dumb question. What is Joss paper? I have been hearing a lot about it lately. Thanks for sharing!

    1. thanks for the kind words. Joss paper is paper sold in Asian stores, it has ceremonial uses I think in Buddhism. I know you will enjoy the files. Thanks for following and always ask!


I love comments,constructive criticism, suggestions and RAK.
