Mystical Creature Shaker Card

This week’s Just Us Girls Challenge is Die Cuts, which worked in perfectly with a card I have made, which will probably be for my youngest granddaughter. It also fits with the AAA Cards 3rd Birthday challenge.

As it happens, I am going to the Brisbane Craft Show on Friday (and Saturday), and they are also holding a challenge. I’ve entered this card into their ‘die cut’ challenge. The theme was mythical creatures. Last year I was lucky enough to get one of my cards into the finals, so fingers crossed for this year.

The background paper is from Kaisercraft “Magic Happens”, and I thought it fit perfectly. I stamped out my scene using Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After stamp set, and coloured with Copics.  I then made a shaker using a postage die as the top layer.  (If you don’t know how to make a shaker, search YouTube. There are tons of tutorials there.) I stamped “Make a Wish” from the same stamp set, and added some ribbon from my stash.

Lastly I added the shaker to the card.

UPDATE: I’ve had an email to say my card is a finalist for the Brisbane Show! Fingers crossed for a place.
