I made a couple of shaker cards today. This one uses a floral die which came in the pack from Sizzix with my Big Shot Plus. I made the frame with a couple of stitched dies from Simon Says Stamp and accompanied it with a couple of butterflies from Poppy Stamps. The coloured card was made with the squished flower technique and has been sitting in the drawer since last season.
The Congratulations is from Tattered Lace.
It's for the Shaker challenge at AAA Cards
I'm not so fond of how this one turned out, but it's a flower from the same Sizzix bundle, together with leaves from Marianne, 'Happy'is from Creative Dies and 'Birthday' from Papertrey Ink. The card was coloured with a smooshy inky technique, not sure exactly how I did it but it's another from the supply of background card I made some time ago!
This is another for the Black and White challenge at Dies R Us..
The trees are another new acquisition from Poppy Stamps, which I inlaid. The sentiment from Hobby Art was stamped and then die cut using a stitched die from SSS, lengthening it slightly so as to accommodate the length of the words.
The lady who commissioned this card seems to have an abundance of friends who produce babies on a regular basis, as I have made many many birth congratulations cards for her. This is the latest, for which I used the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.
The images are from Simon Says Stamp on a background embossed with a Stampin' Up folder. The name was computer generated and the 'Welcome' is from Paper Smooches.The pink parts have been twinkled with Glamour Dust!
