Butterfly Birthday Shakers


I made a bunch of these shaker cards a while ago for stamp club, the theme was to use embossing of any kind. I went with dry embossing by using the Southwest Background Metal Stencil from Stampendous and running it through my embossing machine.  To do this you must use a rubber mat so the stencil image will get embossed.
To die cut the circle the scalloped edge around the circle, the Build a Wreath Die Set was used. The butterfly is from the Cling Lilac Rubber Stamp Set and matching Lilac Die Set.  The plastic I use for the shaker window is transparency film from Staples or you can get it from any office supply store, just make sure it's smooth.
