And then it did.
I wanted to make a card for someone who needed uplifting. And simultaneously Graphic 45 was having a contest. So I took a deep breath and the plunge and created a shaker card inspired by one that had been created by a Graphic 45 design team member, Lori Williams.
I chose paper from the Botanical Tea 12x12 paper stack. I cut a frame for the shaker window using a Martha Stewart Punch-around-the page set, and glued some fussy-cut flowers and a bird around the edges. The shaker was filled with some beads and coarse glitter from another of my hoards. The edges were inked with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad.
I wish I could tell you which punch or ink pad I used, but I simply don't remember. Keeping up with those kinds of details requires a more organized person, or at least someone who promptly posts her projects while the details are still in her memory (and I'm neither of those).
