Watermelon Seed Packet Shaker Card
I think I'm almost back to feeling comfortable making cards. Silly...but I had stopped for two years and have only been back in for a while. I stopped because my cards were not making me happy. All the lace and embellishments, pearls and ribbons weren't me. But two years ago it was all the rage. I came back in February to look at the old places I used to play and noticed that the simpler cards were coming into vogue.
I love CAS cards. I feel good after making one now. And I'm not embarrassed to tell people "I make cards".
For this card I went back to an old idea I'd made in the past- a seed packet shaker. I'm playing at CAS-ology, and their cue card is "Wet".
Card base- DCWV Mango Frost matstack
Card panel- White vellum bristol
Embossing sleeve- Spellbinders, vines and birds
Sentiment stamp- Oriental Traders, slice of life
Handmade watermelon seed packet shaker
pop tape and double sided tape
I was getting desperate to find a nice photographing spot today. Then I notice the window sill was nicely lit and also remembered how beautiful Andrea Ewen's photos are. So I tried it. WOW! I'll be photographing at that spot more often!
I'm playing at:
