Counting Stars

Shaker cards are easier than ever with the new Foam Mounting Strips! The four big stars are all shakers with mini multi-colored stars inside. No need to cut the mounting strips for each star point. I chose a starting point, and curved/pointed my way around all in one strip. And the Star framelits make quick work of the shapes.

A super quick and easy way to get a big wow is a shaker card, and using a Project Life Everyday Adventure card pack speeds it up even more. I chose the ‘Celebrate Every Day’ card and applied a border of raised adhesive cut from the edge of a sheet of Dimensionals. The sequins are from a strand of Bermuda Bay sequin trim. Then I stuck a piece of window sheet cut to 4″ x 4″ on top and covered the edges with washi tape from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Accessory Pack, and mounted the shaker onto a piece of Whisper White card stock base. The matching envelope was done on the Envelope Punch Board. And the final touch was to emboss a 4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder and mount it on the front of the envelope. A little washi tape acted as my envelope closure on the back.
