What if? Wed. DCC Challenge

The Designer Choice Challenge at What If? Wednesday this week is hosted by Dawn and she is challenging us to make shaker cards. When I saw the Stamp of the Week at Repeat Impressions this week I knew it would be perfect for a shaker card. This cute Summer Frame stamp is available for 50% off this week with a discount code found at RI's blog, The House that Stamps Built. I stamped her on acetate and colored with markers. I created a frame with blue and yellow cardstock and raised it all with mounting tape to create the place for the sand and shells. I added the seashell border from Martha Stewart to complete the shaker card.

So try a shaker card for fun and join us in this fun challenge for a chance to win a great Repeat Impressions prize. You have almost two weeks to get the card done and entered. For all the details on the challenge and to see some more great shaker card examples, please visit the RI blog.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Crafty Ann's for "Summertime and the Living is Easy".

Stamping smiles, Karen
