Christmas in July Blog Hop!




**Star of Wonder Shaker Card**


Using embossing and watercolor techniques, this card will be loved by any recipient!  Tempting Turquoise is used for the card stock and primary ink pad color.  I used Tempting Turquoise and a little bit of Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky on the water colored white shimmer card stock using the aqua painters. After allowing the water colored paper to completely dry, I stamped the large star from the Star of Light stamp set with Versamark and used silver embossing powder to give it that extra special touch.  I finished off the shaker card using adhesive strips, white glitter, a window sheet and topped with either Whisper White or White Shimmer cardstock.  I attached the "shaker" to the card front with multipurpose glue (it's easier to attach the watercolored paper to the card base first, then build the shaker on that).  I stamped the expressions in Tempting Turquoise from the same stamp set and the inside star with Crushed Curry.  Lastly, I added a bit of pizzazz to the front by using the "snowflake" washi tape.

Enter to win the giveaway!


Congratulations to last month's winner!
