This was SUPPOSED to be published tomorrow, but my big fat fingers pushed publish by mistake. This is my second post for the day! Scroll down to read the other one!
Red and Pink. Pink and Red. YES, it IS Valentine's season, but COME ON....
Ok, rant over.
I can appreciate all the red and pink that happens during February, but I gotta be able to break it up SOMEHOW.
SO, with thoughts of impending Spring, I made this--
So, yeah, another shaker card. I should be out of pink sequins soon, I think....
Stamps and dies, and punches are from Unity and Stampin' Up.
So, this card came about from scraps left on my table from another project. (though, I have no idea what that project WAS....hmm.....Mr. Cardmaker may be losing it.)
I like the idea of putting the shaker as more of an interior panel, as opposed to popping it off the surface. That way I can pop up other elements, and it get to be more interesting (if only to me!).
A view of the inside--
Except, I stamped it upside down. OXOX. Who puts OXOX on card? It's XOXO!
OXOX is some insult to a pair of chubby twins, for crying out loud...
So, now we have a very much OVERSTAMPED series of kisses and hugs. Because love, right?
SO, see the sequin right in the middle of the E? how nicely it hung there for the photo?
IT WON'T COME DOWN!
I have no idea what is so sticky in there, but that sequin found it, and is hanging on for dear life.
But, I fixed it!
Besides, when all the sequins are just lying there, waiting to be shaken, the card looks a little dead, don't you think? And that's NOT what I'm going for, so much.
Funereal shaker cards don't have too big a market, I'm thinking....
So! That's my Valentine's OTHER Valentine.
I'm entering this in the Virginia's View shaker card challenge. My third!
I made a couple of tags, too. I only have one gift. One tag left over. Hmmmm....
Come see those, next time!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
