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!
