For this month's theme I knew I wanted to make a grad card and I knew I wanted to try to make a shaker card.... here's what I ended up with!
Lots of my favorites on here... that patterned paper, the octopus, sequins, word bubbles, googlie eyes! I thought it would be lots of fun for any grad to receive! :)
I finished the card off with a sentiment inside... you can never say congrats to a grad enough, right?!
Some Stampin' Tips:
- Don't be Afraid to Use White. I am notorious for using colored cardstock for my card bases... I'm trying to force myself to use white and in the process I'm finding that I love it! Sometimes simple is better :)
- Confetti for Shaker Frames. Did you know that Stampin' Up! currently offers two different confetti punches?! Yep... one for hearts and one for stars! They make it really quick and easy to make shaker cards. And they make awesome borders too.
- Designer Series Paper = Simple, Quick & Easy. I recently got into a conversation with one of my downline about how I
hoardlove our Designer Series Paper so much I barely ever use it. Bad Amanda. LOL :) So I pulled some out and made myself use it... totally elevates would otherwise be a very simple card! Pull out your patterned paper to make simple, quick cards that are sure to impress your recipients! :)
