Shake it up, baby!

I almost missed posting this week! We've been so busy, I'm not sure how we got it all done.

This week, our oldest daughter graduated from college, and this is the card I made for her. It's a shaker card, inspired by a presentation at Stampin' Up's convention last week. (I didn't get to go, but I was able to watch some of it streamed live.)

The shaker part is made by using a window sheet and some Designer Series Paper (DSP). Use Washi tape (from the Epic Day collection) to adhere three sides, then add your cute "shakees." I used the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and the Epic Day DSP, along with the Champagne Glimmer paper. Finish off the top with more Washi. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals and added the cute ribbon from Blue Ribbon set. The card base is embossed with a sneak peek--the Stylish Stripes folder from the upcoming Holiday Catalog--available starting August 1!
