Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #215

Good afternoon fellow crafters! How are you all doing? I hope you have all had a great start to the first week of summer! I hope it isn't as hot where you are as it is here! I really wish we would get some rain already! Today I wanted to share a card I made for this weeks Make it Monday Challenge over on Nicole Heady's blog.

I colored this little guy in last week for the Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge Round 2. I knew I wanted to use him for a shaker card, so that is what I made today. Danielle's challenge is to make a card bringing the inside of the card onto the outside as well.



I used Papertrey Ink's Nuts for You stamp set as well as the Ruby Rose Stamp set for the sentiment. I added some sequins and Delica seed beads for the shaker part of my card. I die-cut the window so that you can view the sentiment from the inside of the card on the outside as well.

I'm making this post nice and short as I need to make the kiddos lunch, make something for dinner, and get ready for work in 2 hours! I don't post as much on the blog anymore (although I will try my best to) because I have been using Instagram. If you have an Instagram you can follow me here and I would love to follow you back! Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

What a cute Shaker card. I still seem to have a mental block when it comes to Shaker cards. I wondered why you didn't post as much on your blog, but I'm not into Instagram, so will just have to wait and see when you post on your blog which I really enjoy.
