Elephant Shaker

Hi!  I'm popping in really quickly with a card I made using the soon-to-close Retro Sketch as well as the Spectacular Shakers challenge at MFT Stamps Camp Create.   I'm hoping by the end of the weekend to have completed all the Camp Create challenges.  Wish me luck!  As Seize the Birthday have an Anything Goes challenge, I'll link up there too.  This card also meets the challenge at CAS Mix Up and this is my second entry there (stamps, die-cuts and acetate/shaker)

I used the vertical panel in the sketch to make a fun shaker card for a little girl.  I die-cut the white panels and adhered acetate between them  I then white-embossed the sentiment and adhered that behind the acetate and that's where the foam tape sits to stop the sequins falling out the bottom of the card as the acetate goes right to the bottom.

Once I'd completed the shaker component, I worked on the embellishments.  Some of the gorgeous Homespun Gingham paper was used along the top along with some pink striped baker's twine.  The aptly-named adorable elephant and two butterflies were stamped, colored with Copics and die-cut.

Thanks for visiting!

I never thought I'd need an elephant stamp set until you started making cards with yours. Every single card you make with is the cuter than the last and one of these days I'm going to cave and get that set! This is so adorable I hardly know what to say. :)
