So because you asked for a tutorial on the Pop Up Butterfly from my Beatitude Card post, I made a video tutorial just for you! :-)
I used Make-the-Cut, Lettering Delights' Cloud Nine SVG, and Cosmo Cricket's Social Club cardstock to make the card.
Please note that the cutout is really thin. In the video, I did not adjust the size of the butterfly but I did reduce the image when I made the actual card to approximately 3.5" wide thus making the cut even thinner. I had to use my Silhouette SD cutter for this card because I was not able to get a good cut from my Gazelle. If you own a Gazelle and can get a good cut of this (with a 3.5" wide butterfly, regular printer paper) with it, please tell me what settings you used. I used Force 1, Blade 1 (click holder), and Speed 3 on regular printer paper and got a mess.

If you can't get a good cut with your cutter, you may want to increase the width of the Shadow Layer. Try not to make it too wide because it may distort the overall look of the card.
