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.
