Happy Wishes On Your Day

Happy Wishes On Your Day

This is the last butterfly shaker card and created to send greetings to an upcoming nuptial, birthday, or individual celebration.  The paper is from Hello Lovely, which is retiring on April 30, 2017.  

You can see the wonderfully subtle papers here which work well for all elegant occasions.  I think it would even work well for babies if you use the opposites side of the flower paper.

I chose to use Lemon cardstock for the butterfly because I really wanted it to stand out.  I see all the yellow butterflies in the spring so this paper works out so well for this card.  Yellow creates such a happy feeling.

The shaker (butterfly) and the die are from Queen and Company.  The insides are from my seed bead and sequins stash.  I love these little shakers as they make making shakers so darn easy you can’t help but fall in love with them.  The foam is thick enough (you can make the 3D foam tape thick enough by layering it up) to allow the shaker insides to move freely.

When the card stands up, you can see that I took the inside of the die cut and put it directly on the card base, inside the shaker.  This allows the shaker to be put over different papers.  You can see the bright yellow (I just love our Lemon paper) through the transparency (which Queen and Company provides in all their kits).   This card will be in the Shaker Card Party Buffet in April and May.  Come and play!
