Shimmery Butterfly Pivot for Easter

Good morning friends!

I wanted to send a Pop it Ups card to a Pen-Pal for Easter, so decided to go with the Butterfly Pivot.

The card is a standard A2 size, and I used the Agatha Edges to cut the decorative edge on the right from Shimmer Sheetz. Then, I embossed it - the embossing folder is called Swirly Curves, but it reminds me of a butterfly wing. (I love that embossing folder). I also cut the butterfly overlay from the same Shimmer Sheetz. It shimmers and shines and is just beautiful!

On the inside, I added two patterned paper panels cut with the Agatha Edges and penned the words with a Tombow Marker. These are dual tipped markers - brush at one end, fine point marker on the other.

See how the Shimmer Sheetz catches the light? It's SO irridescent & reflective and changes colours as the card is turned. Perfect for a butterfly!

Finally, here is the card from the back ...

She is going to love this when she opens it, I just know it.
