happy world card making day + shaker card

happy world card making day! i'm celebrating today by sending out a few cards to friends, including this one that is completely inspired by julie ebersole's adorable hello monday card this week. i loved julie's card so much i had to make one too!
-to create the insert for my shaker, i used ranger watercolor paper cut to 2-1/2 x 4, a my favorite things ray stencil and cracked pistachio distress ink. i applied the ink with a mini ink blending tool and then sprayed a little heidi swapp gold lame color shine on top. then i stamped "sending" from the mama elephant happy everything set and "hugs" from the mama elephant bella letters set.

-for my shaker confetti, i stamped and colored the heart from the lawn fawn milk and cookies set. then i die cut it from the coordinating die set. i also die cut taylored expressions love confetti and hearts & stars from essentials by ellen designer dies home & hearth, all from gold foil paper.

-with my fuse tool, i made a 2-3/4 x 4-1/4 pocket, leaving the top open. i inserted the background, colored hearts, confetti and lots of gold sequins, then i sealed the pocket.

-then i adhered the pocket to a 3-1/2 x 5 card made from solar white cardstock.



have a great day!

xo,
carly
