It's Wednesday and the first of July - we've officially come to the middle month of Winter :-) So far we have had a warmer than usual winter apparently - lets hope that continues although we are in need of a little rain.
And it's also time for a new sketch from The Paper Craft Crew! The Team have made fabulous and varied cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to check them out :-)
Here is the sketch:
And here is my card :
This is a shaker card for a friend's son's birthday and while it uses some retired stamps, they seemed so appropriate for this precious wee fellow and his first birthday celebrations!
As usual, I used some of the now retired Shaker Frame Adhesive (yes, I really stocked up on it, lol) to give enough room for the stars and sequins to move around. These frames are twice as thick as standard dimensionals so to help the frame sit better on the card I cut away the DSP and card banner behind the frame using the same square framelits and then raised the background DSP and white card layer on dimensionals. It's hard to see but the Bermuda Bay card banner is embossed using the Alphabet Press EF too.
To fill the shaker I used a combination of Silver Glimmer paper punched with the Confetti Stars Punch and and some of the Brights Sequins assortment. So hopefully this might entertain him for a little while too :-)
