Hi everyone! I’m back today to share more cards using another of Queen & Company‘s fun new Shaped Shaker kits. The Butterfly kit includes the shaker die, stitched outline die, a 2×3 stamp set, four foam/acetate shakers, four shaped cardstock bases and four envelopes. The kit is so very easy to use!
I first used the Butterfly outline die to cut the dotted Sweet Shop patterned paper. I adhered the foam shaker base and filled the wings with Bitty Buttons, blue and pink Flower Buttons and pink Pastel Diamonds.
After adhering the acetate, I stamped the sentiment in black and pink ink (using my MISTI and removable tape for masking to achieve perfect alignment). I die-cut the pink plaid outline (also from Sweet Shop), then tucked the sentiment strip ends beneath the outline and over the body before adhering. Lastly, I glued three black Bitty Buttons over the body piece. Once completely assembled, I adhered to the card base.
To create the purple butterfly, I die-cut the blue floral outline from Bring on Spring then adhered the foam base. To enclose the body area, I cut and adhered strips of scrap foam from the wings. Inside the wings, I stitched buttons from Purple Button Bouquet and Flower Buttons then added some purple Polka Dot Enamel Dots.
I filled the body with purple Ombre Pearls then trimmed and adhered the body portion from an acetate shape. The purple patterned outline was cut from Under the Sea paper pad and the sentiment was stamped and tucked beneath a button. (I cut the left end of the strip to a tag shape and secured beneath the button with a bit of glue.)
I stamped the sentiment, adding a thin scrap strip of striped paper then tucked it beneath some white and pink pearl flowers. (Note: The pink flower is actually from the Red Pearl Flower set. The Pink Pearl Flowers are a brighter pink.)
You can find all of Queen & Company’s newest releases HERE. Should you decide to order, I *highly* recommend grabbing a Sheer Glue as it’s the best for adhering anything to the acetate. Also, add a Clear Diamond refill to your order. If you’re like me, you’ll want to add them to everything and run out very quickly!
I’ll be back soon with more! Thanks so much for visiting! Stay safe! ♥
