SOC - Happy Birthday Shaker Card

Hi everyone, 

I have fallen in love with my cricket once again and used it to make my first shaker card for this months project. It is helped me to make all the decorations for my little girl's first birthday party. 

Today I am sharing with you the birthday card that I made it from hubs and I to my little girl. I used the Teresa Collins sophisticated cricket cartridge and created this number one shaped birthday card.

I cut the white number one at 5 1/2 inches on the shadow effect and then moved the cricket two spaces horizontally and two spaces vertically in and then cut the scroll font one again at 5 1/2 inches in pink to create the space for the for the shaker window.

 I cut the transparency and the two-base 1's at 5 1/2 inches on the shadow effect, assembled the shaker wells and then fill the shaker with iridescent white, pink, and clear seed beads. And my little girl's card was done. There us just enough space for hubs and I to write a little message to her. 

I really love how this card came out and I like that it is not the traditional 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 size shaker card. I hope she enjoys it when she gets older. 

Thus also opens the playing field hit shaped shaker cards! ��

That's for stopping by. I hope the sparks some inspiration for you when making shaker cards. And there you have it.

Until next time,

CAS - Stash cards

Hi Everyone,

Okay so I had to step away from the Nilla Card Box Series so I could figure out how I am going to create a closure for the box.  I think I am going to go with a Chinese knot closure.  Maybe something like this but in black:

But we will see.

In the meantime I have been bus going through my stash, getting reacquainted with those items I have purchased over the years and did nothing with and I am having a blast making new friends with my supplies.

Lately I have reconnected with several sticker (friends) and we have been making beautiful projects together.  Some simple cards and even embellies for my cheating version of scrapbook pages. More on that later.

But today I want to share with you a set of cards using dimensional stickers and an addition to the CAS card series that is ongoing.  I am starting to embrace my CAS style so the series really isn't a series. Any who enough chatter chatter. Here are my cards.

(sorry about the glare on the bottom left card)

Aren't these the cutest!! They are dimensional stickers I found in the dollar store. I just placed the stickers on some MFT Kraft card stock, added some flatback white pearls and took a white gel pen and drew on a border and some white dots and that was it. Oh yeah, the sentiments, from AMY R, MFT, and a Mike's $1.50 bin special, I stamped in white Color box ink.

I am so in love with these cards.  These have a home they will be going to but I do have a few left over so I can make a set for myself.

So there you have it.

Until next time everybody
