I opted for the pre-coloured image this time, along with two of the sentiments, and I knew right away I wanted to make a shaker card. So sorry for the glare on the acetate - it was hard to get a good photo. I used Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics to create the frame from patterned paper (Forever in Time), and I added lots of fun hearts, sequins, and confetti to the shaker - actually I think I may have added too much LOL!
After taking the Stretch Your Dies Online Card Class, I was inspired to use my alphabet letter dies for the first time! I've had these for well over a year - I used my snips to cut them all apart. This is another NBUS item so I'll be joining Darnell's NBUS challenge. If you don't know what NBUS is, check out the link here. Thanks to the die class, now I know how to use alphabet letters and line them up properly - thank you, Jennifer McGuire, Day 7, Lining Up Alphabet Letters. These letters are from Taylored Expressions - Sweet and Simple Alpha - Lower.
I would also like to support these other challenges:
- Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper March UE
- The Paper Girls Shakers 1/3
- Tuesday Throwdown Shake it Up 1/3
Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!
