Popping in with a card that I made this afternoon. I must say that this card took me far too long to make and has pretty much helped me decide that shaker cards are not really for me! Maybe I will give shakers another chance, but not right away!
The layout for my card is based on the current MFT Wednesday sketch and when I saw it I thought it would be perfect for a shaker card. I used the color combo from the current ColourQ. Things started out pretty good, but I ran into trouble when I tried to die cut the acetate sheet to get my window. The acetate is pretty think and I lost count of how many times I ran it through the die cutting machine before I gave up and cut the last uncut side with my paper trimmer! The next problem arose when I realized the foam dimensionals I was using to create my box weren't quit thick enough. I almost gave up at that point... but I soldiered on and got some sequins inside and the whole thing closed up. Given all the struggles I had it is no wonder the overall card is pretty plain. Oh well... I tried! Stamps are from the MFT set Sweet Roses. Dies are Spellbinders and MFT.
Thanks for stopping by...
