Springtime Wishes

Happy Spring!  This Saturday was the first day of Spring and I find that worth celebrating!!  My tulips are popping out of the ground, tiny leaf buds are growing on tree branches and the weather is getting warmer — Spring is my favorite season!

For my card, I layered black then light blue cardstock to the cardbase.  Green cardstock was cut with the Slimline Grass Border Die for the ground.  Using the After The Rain dies, I cut pretty spring colors of cardstock for the rainbow and added a white cardstock cloud with this die.

The ‘abstract’ looking butterfly shaker was created using the Rainbow Egg Die set!  I cut two of the smaller egg die and brushed them with different inks then glued the centers, slightly overlapping them.  I then cut black cardstock with the larger egg die and used one of the cutouts for the center ‘body’; highlighting it with a white gel pen.  To create the shaker, I glued acetate to the back and trimmed it to the butterflies shape.  Using thin foam strips, I lined the edges of the butterfly over the acetate then added Mirrored Clear Hallowed Star Sequins.  I then enclosed the back with white cardstock and trimmed it to the shape of the butterfly.

To finish, I cut black cardstock using the “Happy Birthday” Brush Script Word dies and highlighted the letters with a white gel pen.
