Blank card: Butterfly shaker

Butterfly shaker


This wasn’t made specifically for anyone; I just fancied making a shaker card and using the Clearly Besotted butterfly dies that match their equally lovely dragonfly dies, which I have used before.

Inspired by:

The idea of using a partial die cut to create the shaker window came from seeing Michelle Short’s wonderfully clean birthday shaker card.


  • dies:
    Waffle Flower – flower circles
    Clearly Besotted – butterfly duo die collection
  • embellishments:
    Papermania – adhesive stars – iridescent silver & clear
    silver and gold stars in the shaker
    Papermania – glitterations – silver, gold
  • paper and card:
    Craftwork Cards – sand pearl
    Paperchase – cropping block metallic – black, blue (outline butterflies)
    Shimmer Sheetz – iridescent – blue, purple (butterfly base layers)
    Bo Bunny – paper pad – enchanted garden (back of shaker window)
Butterfly shaker detail
The Shimmer Sheetz catch the light in interesting ways
