Lawnscaping Challenge #120 Shaker Pocket Card!! =)

Pin It

WOWOWOWOWOW!! It's been a LONG Time!! =)
I sure hope you've had an AMAZING Holiday and have ENJOYED spending time with your Family and Friends!! I sure have!! I have been going CRAZY with wanting to create and have been able to find some time to play along with a couple different challenges!! I was SO INSPIED by the Sweet Card that Audrey Tokach made for the Lawnscaping Challenge #120 and this is what I came up with!! I've used the New Lawn Fawn Scalloped Rectangle Stackable Dies to create a FUN Scalloped Shape for my Card and then I used the Lawn Fawn Papers for my Base!! I then used the Largest Stitched Lawn Fawn Rectangle Dies to create the Shaker Pocket for my Card!! I Die Cut it from some We R Memory Keepers 12x12 Fusable Paper and used the We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool to fuse it together!! I used the same Stitched Rectangle to create the Inside Layer and some Distress Inks to Color the Background!! I used Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire!! I used the Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflake Dies to Die Cut several of them from the Background!! Then I backed it with some White Cardstock that I added some Rock Candy Distress Glitter too!! I then splattered it with some Water for a FUN Distressed look and it really gives the look of Falling Snow!! Then I Stamped and Die Cut the Trees and the Squirrel from the Lawn Fawn Joy to the Woods Stamp Set!! I used the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border Dies to create some Snow Banks and then added the Sequins and some Seed Beads!! I closed up the top of the Shaker Pocket using the Fuse Tool!! I also decided to Die Cut the Moose from the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Arctic Stamp Set and added the CUTE Hat!! I Stamped and Embossed my Sentiment on the Inside of the Card and then used the Die Cut Snowflakes from the Front of the Shaker Pocket along with some layered Sequins to decorate the inside of the Card!! SQUEAL!! I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out and I sure hope I've INSPIRED you in some way to give the Shaker Pocket Card design a try!!??
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS New Year's Eve/New Year's Day/Weekend!! =)
