Love You Tons

Hi there!  It's Lorraine (Created by Lorraine) sharing my last card as part of Butterfly Reflections Ink's Design Team.  Though I am sad to leave, I am incredibly thankful to Vanessa for giving me such an amazing opportunity to grow as a crafter and share my work.  What a great experience!  As a small token of my gratitude, I packed a whole lot of love into this project...

To make this card, I first stamped, colored (with copics) and die cut the images using a number of Lawn Fawn products, including Love You Tons stamps and dies for the elephants and sentiment; Year Four stamp and die for the balloon.

I also used Lawn Fawn lawn cuts, Say Cheese, to make the picture frame.  I then die cut the sun and clouds from Lawn Fawn patterned paper, using the Spring Showers lawn cuts.

Then I assembled the shaker card.  I adhered clear acetate to the picture frame with glue, then adhered narrow strips of foam adhesive to the back.  I then cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the polaroid frame and put some sequins on top of it.  Then I adhered the picture frame on top of the patterned paper to create the shaker element.

To finish up my card, I stamped the sentiment to the card base and used strong tape to adhere the shaker element to the card base.  Lastly, I completed the design by adhering the die cuts with glue or foam tape.

Thank you for coming by and thank you -- Vanessa and the BRI fam -- for your support.  It really has been a honor to be part of the BRI team.  As the card says, love you tons!
