Scrapmixers Tutorial Secret Contest #3 Steampunk Butterfly Card


Hi all

I am back with my first tutorial for Scrapmixers. I am going to show you how to create a layered steampunk card.



I used a selection of Leli-bot Steampunk papers and the butterfly stamp by Gecko Galz


First cover the card with patterned paper and then cut a strip off another sheet. Use a boarder punch to create a lacy edge.


Cut out a square using nesting dies and adhere to card.


Colour your stamp in with marker pens and adhere to center of square



I used the First Edition Haberdashery Die Set and cut out the scissors using the gold gilded paper from the Botanical notes paper pad. I stuck this into the center of the butterfly.


Next i die-cut some small cogs and adhered them to the butterfly wings and around the card.


Add a sentiment


Finish off the card by adding a few small buttons down the center of the butterfly. I lined them up by size so they formed the body of the butterfly.




Here is the final card.


Here are a few close ups of the topper so you can see how i put it together.


Thank you for visiting

Thank you Katie for this amazing technique/card tutorial.

A butterfly reminds me of freedom. When do you feel yourself free?

For me it must be creating. I transfer in the world of creativity and create like there are no boundaries. No Good or Wrong way to make a card/mini-album/layout etc. I can express myself and SHARE my work/ my story with the world. The most important for me now is to inspire all scrapmixers. You are a scrapmixer too. Remember that. 

While creating I am aware of my freedom. Doing what I love.
I'm looking back occasionally at my designs I've created and the stories I told and I see a pattern. Of who I am, what I want....

While creating, I'm lifting my creativity to the unlimited and I get to know what I think it's important to tell. That way I learn myself. I love to learn, to paint, to create but also to teach.

Who are you? What pattern do you see in your work and the stories you tell? What/Who is/are important to you? 
Did you forget to tell stories about someone who IS important to you but you never got to scrap a lot about him/her?
Well, I would say, look at your creations and scrapbook more about yourself....
