A Blessed Birthday
Hello friends : ) Today I get to share a card I made for the Seize the Birthday Challenge : ) where I am honored to be the Surprise Party Guest for April and May!
You have heard of a CASEd card well this is a CASEd Stamp and die set heeheehee. I purchased this butterfly set for my sister but before mailing it to her I stole a few cuts! and created this card.
I chose to cut my card base as a "Tall and Skinny" inspired by the old 2015 Mojo Monday challenges. The card is actually only 3.5" x 5.5". I did that because I wanted my butterfly wing to hang over the side of the card while still fitting in an A2 envelope : )
I cut four butterflies:
one from white cs
one from white foam
two from clear acetate
I created the shaker card adding the sweetest little tiny yellow stars. It is impossible to really see in the picture but these little stars are so light that because of static some cling to the top acetate piece - some cling to the bottom acetate piece and then some lay inside the shaker normally! It helps give this shaker (and the fact some of it hangs off the card) the sweetest dimension : )
I love birthdays!! and so it is a special treat for me to be adding my designs to the wonderfully talented gals at Seize the Birthday! Please consider joining us for this fun challenge! The theme is ANYTHING GOES!! which is always so much fun! The challenge runs for two weeks so there is plenty of time to play along. I can't wait to see what YOU create!
I will be adding my card to another challenge as well! Happy Little Stampers challenge this month is mixed media with "Wings of any description".
Edited to add:
Thanks to the suggestion of my friend Lisa I am also adding this card to The Paper Players Challenge Blog!! I have never played with this great group but let me tell you!! between the terrific Design TEam and the gallery there are some spectacular butterflies floating around over there!! Come join the fun! : )
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your wonderful comments! They really make my day : )
