Butterfly Blessings

Butterflies are a favorite....I guess very few people would say they don't like beautiful and so many pretty varieties.   The Just Imagine Crafts DT is sharing projects created with their pretty butterfly die this month!  I've got a pretty shaker card to share with you:

This die is the PERFECT size for shaker cards.  Course there are so many other uses.  You can see more inspiration on the Just Imagine Crafts blog HERE.

Just a few simple card layers....I used the new BoBunny Faith collection papers (behind the butterfly, the green layer behind, and the blessing sentiment).

To make the soft watercolor looking front panel piece, I used punch #901 and the Kreaxions star template to make a doily.  Then I used it as a stencil on white cardstock with Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.  A few water drips and a little more ink applied added a softness to the background.

Then I die cut the butterfly out of the front panel, and to create the shaker, I used a piece of plastic from sticker packaging I was discarding (up-cycle bonus!), gluing it over the die cut butterfly.  I added foam tape all around the back of this piece and used a slightly larger piece of paper to cover it:

Course, don't forget to put in some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Queen & Co toppings--believe it or not, I HAVE forgotten before....haha!

And so with a little ribbon, bling and bows, you have this pretty spring card.

And don't forget to save that die cut butterfly....he might just show up in a few weeks.....keep an eye out!  Make sure to check out the Just Imagine Crafts store to find the butterfly die, the Kreaxions butterfly border punch (#901) and so many more goodies!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Enjoy your day!
