Craftin' Desert Divas - Shake it UP

Craftin Desert Divas

My Card. . . . 

I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies to die cut my panels, to create the top border for the shaker window I used two dies in size order and die cut at the same time to get just the border.

I used the Craftin Desert Divas Stamp set So Long, I just love this little giraffe! I stamped him on my top panel and then flicked Distress ink for a background, I also decided to flick ink on the shaker background so that it wouldn't be flat. 

I then colored the giraffe in with the same colors. I actually ended up not liking the original giraffe so I stamped a second one, colored it in and then fussy cut it and put it on top of the one I didn't like. EW. I HATE fussy cutting, there is a reason I get the matching dies. . . . 

I cut a little speech bubble for the sentiment. I used some seed beads and 4 different colors of sequins in the shaker. I put a few on the front to tie it all together.

I really like this card, even though I had problems with my first giraffe, it turned out exactly how I had imagined it.

See You Next Time!



  1. This is a very sweet card. Love the stitched detail on the layering pieces and of course the sweet giraffe!!
