So I’m shaking things up with shaker cards! My bestfriend sent me an awesome youtube video showing how to make your own shakers and I’m officially obsessed!
I’ve filled this shaker card with beads and star sequins. I found a great way to store all these goodies along with my other craft essentials and will be sharing that in my next post!

Doodlebug Designs…I love this line for stamps and all things adorable!

I used clear cs to make a glass window on the submarine and loved how it turned out! I also stamped the submarine on glittery silver paper which gives it a nice finish. This is also my first card using distressed inks correctly. YAY!
I really need to combine stamp sets more often!

I had a request to make a few cards for some nurses who are approaching graduation! So I thought “You can do it! Almost There!” cards would be great for the occasion. I’ll be making a few more of these cards for the graduation season!
The best part about making these is that I found these epoxy stickers that fit perfectly for his glasses!
