SSCB#32 Window Card - Heart Shaker

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I feel like I've been running in circles since I got home from vacation this past weekend.   Yesterday I spent 5 hours at the car dealer having some service done.    Hard to believe - especially when they require you to have an appointment.  They blamed it on all the recalls, but wow - it sure would have been nice to have a head's up and maybe just drop the car off instead of sitting for hours.   The service manager just kept popping by saying "we're still working on it - shouldn't be much longer".     I'm all caught up on the talk shows now and am ready to share celebrity gossip!   And I have a new found appreciation for Candy Crush!   Just what I needed LOL!!! 



A new challenge begins today at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  We present a new challenge for you on the first Wednesday of every month.  This time you are kindly asked to create a card with a window.  You can die cut, punch, or even hand cut a window with a blade... and then what to put inside said window?  Well an image, or a sentiment, how about nesting a die inside that window?  Me?   I decided to make a shaker card. To add to the fun Mary (the owner of Serendipity) asked us to CASE (copy and share everything) a fellow DT member.   I hope it's ok that I reached into the vault for this one.  I saw this tag that SSDT Alumni Cathy Weber made a while back and pinned it onto my secret Pinterest board "Things That I'm Smitten With".  I love the white on kraft, lace and pearls.  Here's Cathy's design....  

I embossed the image in white on two pieces of kraft card stock.  I die cut one and then layered it on top of the second, creating a pocket with adhesive foam tape.  I filled the shaker with pearls, buttons, sequins.  I got lucky and found the same lace Cathy used, and some satin ribbon too.   Here's my version of Cathy's tag.

Looking for a little more inspiration?  Here's links to the other DT members - just click to jump to their blogs.

So beautiful! Gorgeous work as always!

That is terrible! I would have said give me a loaner or a courtesy shuttle or something. I don't take my car unless I have a loaner set up in place. One time of sitting there for 2 hours for what was suppose to be a 20 min apt was the last. I can't imagine 5. I've been lucky and grateful that has been the only time.

Hope you have a GREAT Wednesday!

This is beautiful Jeanne. I love the white on kraft too. I like how you've perfectly lined up the stamped image underneath the top one with the aperture - did you use a stamp positioner?
