AEIHeartU Challenge #31


Thanks for stopping by! Today, I am bringing you the latest Avery Elle Challenge, Metallics! It's been around for ages, but Gold and Silver are always in! I used a bit of both on my cards today, yes, cards! I couldn't stop at one.. 

I decided I had to make a shaker to emphasize all of that glitz, so a shaker it was. I die cut an oval using the Sweet Scallops Elle-ments die set, from the upper middle of my white panel. I then added a generous amount of foam tape, sprinkled in lots of gold and silver sequins, as well as micro beads, and placed another piece of acetate over it to contain them. I adhered the panel to a white note card, which I had previously stamped my sentiment on. 

I added three various size strips of gold card stock, and then adhered a floral spray of stamped die cuts over top of it.

I told you I couldn't stop! I took a white panel, stamped my flowers, and greens, and trimmed the bottom portion, carefully cutting around a flower, and a few leaves. I then popped it up onto a card base that I had stamped a striped pattern onto, as well as a strip of gold card stock.

I finished it by stamping the circle cluster stamp around my florals, using Delicata ink!

Thanks so much for joining me today, I sure do hope to see you play along!


  1. What wonderful cards Lindsay - the shaker card is wonderful, and I love the subtle gold on the floral one.
