So - now onto my card :)


For my card, I created a shaker!  I first started out stamping out my background with Argyle Backdrops from Lawn Fawn onto a piece of white card stock.  I love this background builder stamp, and who doesn't like Argyle.  It is a great pattern to use for masculine cards. I love the contrast between these two blue ink colors.  Once I was done inking up my background, I die cut my panel out using the largest die from the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables Die set, and also created a window using the next to last size in the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackable set. Then, I worked on the inside panel of the shaker.  I stamped onto a piece of blue card stock using the So Much To Say stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped it in white pigment ink, and then applied white embossing powder and used my heat gun to set the powder.  Then, I added a piece of acetate to my window and then some foam adhesive around the window.  I did double up on my foam adhesive to ensure that my seed beads would shake freely :)  Once I added my beads, I adhered my shaker panel to my white card base.  
I felt I needed just a little something extra as it felt too plain, so I die cut out two stars from the Star Stackables from Lawn Fawn.  I inked up a polka dot background stamp and stamped the pattern down onto my white start, and then added my smaller star on top and finished it off by adding a bit of shimmer with my Wink of Stella Pen ( even though its hard to capture here.  Well - that's it from me - now its time to send you off to the one and only Lenny!!  Be sure to leave comments for your chance to win a gift certificate from our new and awesome sponsor!!
