Thinking of You

Hello again!! It’s time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Thinking of You

We are showcasing Paper Rose Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I decided to make a shaker card this week because I’ve never used the Waffle Flower Shaker Covers and I wanted to try it out and see how easy it would be. I actually like how it turned out and I didn’t have to mess around with craft foam or foam tape or sequins running away on me.

I ran a piece of A2 size Neenah Solar White 80 lb. card stock through a hexagon embossing folder that I had in my stash. The pattern paper I’m using is Paper Rose Bee Hive. I used one of my A2 Layers die to cut my patterned paper with and popped it up on a slightly smaller piece of Craft Foam.

For the back of my shaker, I took one of the Nested Circles die by Simon and cut a coordinating patterned paper. Then I placed the patterned paper circle inside a 3 inch Circle Shaker Cover and started folding all of the sides in but leaving the top open so I could add my sequins. I used Tape Runner to keep all of the flaps in place because I didn’t want any shaker bits escaping.

I added my sequins and sealed the top of the shaker cover. I glued it on my card front using some Tear Rific 1/4″ Tape. For my sentiment I used the Thinking of You die by Simon Says Stamp. I cut it out twice, once in black and once in white. I glued them together with a slight offset so it would stand out a bit.

To finish off my card, I added a few Apricot Glace Pearls and I went over the sentiment with my Tonic Aqua Shimmer Pen.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
