Butterfly Napkin Cards

Hello, I promised a while ago I would show off some more of my napkin cards and how I created them.  The first card is here if you want to go back and take a look.  I created these for a card swap.  I had never tried the technique but have been wanting to for some years.

Here's a close up.

Here is how I made the napkin pieces:
  • Separate the napkin into the thinnest piece possible and cut into manageable pieces.  There are usually at least three layers.
  • Run an A2 (or any size you chose) piece of white card stock through the Xyron.
  • Adhere the napkin to the sticky side of your card stock and smooth out any wrinkles.
  • Run the piece through the Xyron once again with the adhesive on top of the decorative side.
  • Carefully remove the sticky napkin and sprinkle with fine clear glitter (or try a color?)
  • Press down/rub to really get good adhesion and shake off any excess glitter.
  • Trim your glitter napkin card stock piece to the desired size (or shape~try die cutting!)

I layered the glitter napkin on some colored card stock.  I finished my cards up with some die cut pieces, a stamped sentiment and a 3-D butterfly sticker.

Another close up.  The turned out so pretty.
