I didn't do real well on my crafting goals for this week, but I did get some of my projects done. This was one of them. I started with the butterfly shaker card by Lori Whitlock. I love Lori Whitlocks patterns. They cut so good and there is just so much you can do with them.
I cut three butterflies. The first with really thick chipboard. It was too thick and I ended up cutting the shape out, but it is my favorite shaker. The thickness is just right. The second I used thinner chipboard. It cut out really well. The third, I used paper. When you use paper you have to make several layers (I used 10), but the results are the same. I will probably use paper from here on out just because the chipboard really makes your blade dull.
I added a texture on the top of my card and then the stripe with a scalloped border. The happy birthday in the bottom right corner is a stamp from Morning Star.
As I said, I love the shaker and will be making more of them.
I am using the card in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenges - Birthday
Chocolate Coffee Cards - Embossed
Love To Create - Punches and Dies (scalloped edge)
Have a great day. Hope to be back later with another project.
