Happy Wednesday, peeps! You all were so gracious about my faux shaker card from Sunday’s post, I thought I would prove to you that I honestly do know how to make a real shaker card! This idea was rattling around in my head for a while after I received Sprinkles of Life and I finally took it to fruition…no pun intended:
I used some Farmer’s Market DSP and the new Tags & Labels dies to make my shaker window. I stamped and punched out the tree, bird and apples and assembled the whole thing with a window sheet and foam tape.
It’s really cute IRL! I added a couple of banners and stamped the sentiment on an Itty Bitty Banner to finish it off. And here’s a hint about punching out those small images with the Tree Builder punch. Stamp your small image on a narrow piece of scrap cardstock (we all have plenty of them, right?):
Slide the strip into the specific punch area from the back….you should be able to wiggle it through the slot fairly easily:
Then just punch! You won’t have a bunch of other punched pieces flying around! Here’s my little apple, and I still have more cardstock on which to stamp and punch!
We are on vacation, so I am going to take a little bloggy break, but I’ll be back on Sunday with my Paper Players creation! Enjoy your week!
