The World To Me

Hey there!

I hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far.  I am stopping by with a shaker card today using some fun Avery Elle stamps and Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  I had to play along with the Mother's Day challenge also, because I wanted to make a super special card for my mom!

This card was a serious labor of love, it took forever to make!  I had to keep modifying the design, and of course I applied all of the adhesive to the die cut window panel, and only then realized I forgot to adhere the acetate first, oh bother!  Needless to say, it is accomplished, and I love it!

So to begin, I took a white panel, and stamped the woodgrain pattern from Woodgrain and More, in Vanilla HA ink.  I then die cut a window using Paper Smooches Duo Die 2 from the upper center.

I then attached the acetate with strong adhesive, and covered the edges of the frame with foam.  I sprinkled in some fun sequins, and adhered it to my card base that I stamped with the Thanks A Bunch set.  I added my sentiment from the Love Notes set, cut it out and popped it up.  Lastly, I die cut letters from Avery's Alpha dies in Kraft and adhered them with foam.

Oh, and i {heart} papers is having a sale because of today's National Scrapbooking Day, so head on over for a bit of a discount when you shop!

Thanks for stopping by!
