I wanted to share a get well card I made for my friend Mike who suffered a major booboo while working on his surfboard. He had to go to the ER after his thumb got infected. Poor guy, they cut open his thumb to release the pressure that was building. Here's the get well card I made for Mike...I love the Pun Fun stamp set (by SU). I never used this whale before :) it's so cute!!
Here's a pic of Mike surfing...he can't wait to get back in the water...get well soon buddy!
Stamp set: Pun Fun

Here's another money card. I love this pull card. You can make it any size you want to. I featured the new Manhattan Flower embossing folder, so pretty! I lightly sponged Baja Breeze ink over the embossed flower to add some softness to it.
Inks: Baja breeze, chocolate chip
This is a gate fold card with a belly band to keep it closed.

Isn't this a cute image?? Love these owls by Rachel Ann Miller that I got from Little C's! This isn't a new image, but one of my many favorites. The DSP is from SU and is a specialty textured DSP . I love the weight of these textured papers. The word Friend is from the set Fundmental Phrases (one of my faves!) and I used the small, large and scallop oval punches. Flowers by Hero Arts which I sponged on Tempting Turquoise and finished off with a square rhinestone brad (by SU). Micro beads from the SU bead duo and those green beads are from Walmart. Got those cool beads the day I fell on the escalator!! Cardstock used: chocolate chip and baja breeze.
Now that I finally finished Part 2 of the double shaker tutorial, I'm on a roll making double shaker boxes for some raks that I'll be sending out soon. Thanks for coming by today!
You will need a piece of DSP that measures 8 3/4" X 9". You will need a pencil (or pen) and a ruler to mark up the back side of the paper. When you are done measuring and marking it up, it will look like this:With the 9" across the top, from the left edge, mark your paper at 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 6 3/4" and 7 1/4". Draw the lines from top to bottom.
Turn the paper and now with the 8 3/4" across the top, mark your paper at 1 3/4", 2 1/4", 6 3/4" and 7". Draw the lines from the top to the bottom.
For the window in the middle, with the 9" side on the top, I measured 3/4" from the second line on the top and 3/4" from the first line on the bottom.
Close shot of me cutting out the pieces.Showing some progress here!This is what your paper should look like when you are done cutting off the narked area. You will now need to cut out the window in the middle. I cut out the window using my Fiskars paper cutter. I love using the blade because you can get a pretty perfect cut using the cutter rather than free hand cutting (I don't cut very straight).
You are ready to wrap your box with the paper. Place your shaker box in the middle of your paper and do a test wrapping around your shaker box. Make any adjustments, if needed. If it fits good, add double stick tape on the paper so you can wrap around the box.
