For the first card, I made a shaker card by running through the die cutting machine a white card panel along with the Butterfly Square Die. As you can see, I did two cuts one on top of the card panel, and the other on the lower side. Once both die-cuttings were done, I adhered the backing of the leftover card panel to a HA Acetate Sheet with double-sided tape. In the meantime, I also carefully inlaid back in place the positive die-cutting from the Butterfly Square die-cuttings on top of the acetate with liquid glue, and I set it aside while I create the inside background for the card. For the inside background, I adhered a piece of Rainbow with Splatters Washi Tape to an A2 white card panel easy uh! Then, to finish the card panel off, I adhered lots of 3M foam mounting tape to the backing of the card panel with the butterflies, and I added Rainbow Bright Diamonds inside the frames to create the shaker movement. Lastly, I peel off all of the backing paper from the tape, and I adhered the panel that I create for the inside background on top of it with the colors facing down as I was working upside down to keeping for the diamond not to fall everywhere (I hope I don’t confuse you, and this makes sense to you) Right after when I was done adhered the backing of the card panel to the other, I rounded two corners of the card panel as you can see in the picture above with We R Memory Keepers Chomper, and I white heat embossed a sentiment in a piece of Black Card Stock from the Tiny Words Encouragement Stamp Set which, I trimmed and adhered with 3M Foam Tape to add a little bit of more dimension.
For the second card, I started by smooshing a little hint of Carved Pumpkin, Scattered Straw, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, and Spun Sugar in a white card panel. Once, the smooshing was done, I set the card panel aside for the inks to dry out. In the meantime, I ran through the die-cutting machine the Butterfly Square Die to die-cut it out of white card stock 5X. Right after when I was done with the die-cuttings, I stacked all the frames together creating a dimensional frame as you can see in the picture above. As for the sentiment, I white heat embossed another sentiment from the same Tiny Words Encouragement Stamp Set on a piece of black card stock with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. By the time that I was done with the die-cutting, and heat embossing the sentiment the card panel which, I smooshed with the distress inks earlier was already dry. So, I trimmed the card panel slightly smaller than a standard A2 size card, and I rounded the two bottom corners as you can see in the picture above. Lastly, I adhered the Butterfly Square with liquid glue followed by the sentiment which I adhered with 3M Foam Tape to add a little dimension.
Finally, to finish both cards off I adhered each of the card panels to their A2 side top folding white card bases with double-sided tape, and I round the corners of the card bases following the corners from the card panels. To complement the sparkle from the shaker card, I adhered a few Moonshine Confetti Sequins just to add a little sparkle to the other card.

I am creating this blog with the purpose of sharing how I design my cards, the information provided here is base in my own opinion and creativity. I am not an expert by any means, and I only share the way that I design my cards. The products shared and mentioned in my blog posts are simply because I use and truly love them. Most of the products used for my blogs are personally purchased by me. However, I did receive the Butterfly Square Die by Simon Says Stamp, and some of the products by WOW! Embossing Powder.
