Double Duty - Triple Shaker


This card was a true labor of love. Did you ever have an idea in your head and it just don't work out quite as simply as you think it will? Well this is that card! I knew I was way behind on Blogging and challenges so thought I would combine this weeks Blogger Challenge (a card with movement) with this weeks Sketch Challenge at SCS. I was able to make it work but it took a bit more time than I was wanting to set aside for this. Oh well it is done now. The base of the card is the textured River Rock card stock. The images and words are from the Just Like You set. The flowers are stamped on Very Vanilla in Ruby Red and Groovy Guava. The Guava Circles are created by punching the 1 and 1/4 inch circle punch into a piece of Groovy Guava and then centering the circle in the 1 and 1/2 inch circle punch and punching again. These were layered over the Ruby Red 1 and 1/2 inch circles and then over the River Rock embossed piece. I then came back in with my 1 and 1/4 inch punch and punched out the center again to remove the Ruby Red and River Rock paper from the circles. Clear as mud? The rest is just your basic shaker card. Hope you enjoy.
