Let’s Party Shaker

For this card I used Papertrey Ink’s Text Block Party Time and created small wells around three of the balloons to make them shakers. It’s easy to do with Darice Foam Strips. I like the way it turned out and any card with a shaker is so fun to play with.

Net Frame Happy Birthday Flowers

I’ve found that dies from China are often smaller than those available in the United States and so I don’t typically buy them anymore, but this is one that I really like. I cut the net frame die three times from heavy cardstock and glued them together using Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. I love the look of white on white.
