Shaking the 411
I love checking out the sketches at Stamping 411, but don't seem to find time to play along as often as I would like. This week, the sketch was just too appealing, and when I saw that Hand Stamped Sentiments had a challenge to make a shaker card, I thought the two would work well together! This is my first EVER shaker card and it was a very easy technique thanks to my shaker frames!!
The funky dotted border was made using the eyelet border punch. I had estimated my strip of paper a little too narrow, but when I looked at it, I thought it looked pretty cool anyway!
A close up of the shaker window and all of it's glittery goodness...
It's almost my bedtime, so I'm going to cut this short and hurry off to link it to the two challenges! Thanks for visiting!
