June Pop It Ups Designer Challenge – Summer

PIU Butterfly Pivot 03

Today starts the June Karen Burniston Pop It Ups Challenge – Summer!  What does summer mean to you?  My first card is the Butterfly Pivot card with a twist – it’s a shaker!  I stenciled the front with the new Stage It Stencil  – Blossoms Layering.  This is a 2 step stencil that let me do the petals in Calypso Coral and the centers in So Saffron.  And, of course, I had to add some Dazzling Details to the centers!.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s Watercolor Wishes.

Because there are layering pieces in the Butterfly Pivot die, it was easy to cut a frame for my shaker.  I used a sponge to add the ink in an ombre style.

On the inside I repeated the stenciling and added a banner that matches the front of the card.  This is my idea of summer!  Make sure to check out the other summer ideas on Karen’s Blog.  Hugs, Fran

  1. This is absolutely breathtaking, Fran!! I’m in love with it!

  2. Beautiful card. What did you make the shaker part of the card out of?

    1. To make the shaker I cut a second butterfly pivot and nestled the smaller die inside. I put a butterfly cut from window sheet under it and used foam tape to around it to make the shaker

      1. Thanks!
