A Butterfly Shaker Card

3 Comments

Aloha Friends!

NIki G. here to share another shaker card since this month’s challenge is all about them!

Have you been enjoying all of the many different and fun ways to create a shaker?

I know I have, so today’s card is using the super versatile Stamp and Cut Butterflies.

(Which by the way is on sale in the store!)

Butterflies are not just for spring and summer, but with some simple color changes

can be used all year long!

Here’s today’s card…

I die cut the butterflies using Hero Arts Floral Layering Paper.  The best part about their

cardstock is that it coordinates so well with the Lilac to Grape Purple Ombre ink pad.

I lined the back of the card front panel with acetate paper and then used StazOn

ink (a solvent ink used on all kinds of nonporous surfaces) to stamp out the

detail of the butterflies on the acetate paper.

I added a few more stamped butterflies and stamped out the sentiment still using the

Hero Arts Ombre ink in Lilac to Grape Purple.

I doubled up on foam tape to allow the sequins to really move around and made 2 foam tape frames around

the individual butterflies so that one butterfly could have gold sequins and the other silver sequins.

That’s it for me today!  I hope you’ll join our challenge…there’s still some time left!

Don’t forget there’s a chance to win $25 to the store…who doesn’t need a little retail therapy?!

Mahalo!!
