Basketball shaker card (Bugaboo image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I couldn't help myself, I had to create another shaker card hehe! I couldn't wait for my foam tape to arrive in the post so I bought some more at one of the local shops. 

This card is for a basketball star in the making and the cute little boy is from Bugaboo. I inked up some wooden stars to add to the outside of the card and the frame was embossed with a wooden embossing folder. I masked the green background paper and inked it with a more olive green to compliment his clothing.

Best Buddies Birthday card (Melonheadz images)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Aren't these two little boys cute? You can find them at Melonheadz. I printed them close to each other but they are 2 separate images. I wish I had cut the bit inbetween them but I had already added dimension behind them before I realised doh! This cool paper from Bo Bunny was perfect for their background, I just had to fussy cut from the pathway to add my green cardstock for "grass".

Shaped Wedding card (Flat Friends image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I used a Flat Friend image (sadly no longer available) and printed it small enough so that it would fit into my polaroid die to look like a photo of the happy couple.

Yellow & Red Birthday card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Oh how I love this image, she is so sweet! You can find her at Polkadoodles. I love layering some bright papers over each other, mounting them on black cardstock to really make the card pop.

Snorkelling shaker card (Scrapper's Delights image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Can you believe I've created over 900 cards and this is my first shaker card? I absolutely loved doing this but it wasn't quite as easy for me as the lady I watched on Youtube hehe! I used some large glitter and some sea items as well as the gorgeous little snorkeler from Scrapper's Delights. I added a flatter foam tape to him so that he still stood out but not as far as the front of the card (if that makes sense?) I love this bubble paper for the background as it looks like its coming from his snorkel doesn't it?
