I’ve had the idea for this card in my head for a long time and I am so glad I finally got it done. It came out exactly how I was hoping! (Mom, if you are reading this, look away! This is YOUR card!)
The idea came to me when I was browsing Simon Says Stamp looking for some Christmas supplies so I could make a purchase and snatch up my Free Birthday Stamp Set. That was back in August and I finally got around to making it. Anyways, I ran across this Riley and Co. stamp…
and I knew I had to have it, but I needed a perfect co-stamp for it to work great for my purposes. So, I searched some more and I found this Penny Black Stamp…
Once I found that stamp an even better idea came in my head and knew I would need to buy these…
glass seed beads so I could make a shaker card! Not just any shaker card, but a shaker window card. I wanted you to only see her sweet little face making her case to Santa about her gift-worthiness. Then you open the card to see the rest of the stamped image and I would stamp the rest of the sentiment on the inside.
So, here’s the end product:
I’m super happy with how this card came out! It took me about an hour and a half to complete it. Other products I used to complete the card were:
• Lawn Fawn Let’s Bokeh in the Snow Paper
• Tim Holtz Distress Markers
•Blue Sequins from the $1 store ( Great place to stock up on shaker card supplies!)
• Holiday Flourishes Stamp Set by The Ton
• Clear Acetate – I use some transparency film I purchased from e-bay
• Loads and Loads of Foam Tape – which I also buy from the $1 store. It’s super thin though, so I have to do 3 layers.
I also filmed this card and I will add the video to this blog post once I am done editing it. Thank you for stopping by!
