Iris Butterflies...

Happy Tuesday,

A different shaker card today made using the Heart Treat cups and the Fluttering Heart die designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.















I started by cutting the inner die from the Fluttering Heart die into a piece of Iris foundation card randomly over the piece.  I then added a sheet of bright white foundation card behind this using spray adhesive.  I then framed this with a frame made with the noble double pierced background rectangles die with a couple of layers of iris and white for goo measure!


Next I cut the outer inner and detail die form the fluttering heart in bright white and backed this with Iris cut with just the 2 heart dies in the set.  I then added this over a heart treat cup ( made to fir the die exactly) and filed it with the Crystal Hexagons from the new Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels collection.  I added the backer die cut in iris over white to the back after adding a heart cut in acetate to seal the shaker heart.

To finish I added the shaker element as shown at the bottom centre and used the amazing wispy fronds cut in iris and the flowers cut from the spring foliage in white with cobalt 3D pearl accents in the centre.

Enjoy...

  24. Gorgeous card John. So pleased I bought all three heart dies especially this one with the butterflies. Thank you for sharing this with us. I think my card will be purple but the Iris does look nice.

    Gorgeous, I made one very similar to this with the same colours but on an 8x8 card for Mother's Day after seeing one of your demo cards on Hochanda. I'm now in the process of making one in pink. And I got the glitter to stick on the double sided sticky sheets this time woo hoo. :-) xx
