Good morning blog friends....

A colourful shaker card today.  I started by colouring a piece of white cardstock with two distress oxide inks.  I then die cut the 'love'  to cover both colours

I added acetate to the inside of the lettering, adhered it to the card as well as mounting foam to the edges.  Lots of gold confetti, and a touch of blue confetti was added, the mounting foam removed and a piece of cardstock, that was from the A5 card I had coloured, was adhered to the back

I don't know why the 'LOVE' background looks blackish, other than my photography skills not being too good, as it's just a slightly lighter shade of the front of the card!

A black mat was added  and the card was ready to adhere to the yellow base card

From my stash of die cut letters I coloured 'you' with abandoned coral DO and before adhering to the card I added a shadow in black, also coloured with a black pen

I added a few tiny black gems around the card

The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto white copy paper and a corner punch was used

  6. Gorgeous card June. Have a good weekend.

  7. What a pretty shaker card! I have to say that I've only tried making a shaker once and it was a disaster. I love your DO blended background and using a word die for the shaker part.

  8. Oh my, that is a beautiful card and I love the colors that you used. It looks like a sunset! Also like the clever design, where you use a die cut word as the shaker.
