SSS Wednesday Challenge: Gift it

Hello fellow cardmakers, today I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp on the Wednesday Challenge. This weeks Wednesday challenge theme is Gift it. Even though Christmas isn't here yet, my cards have been mailed and for the most part received by my friends and family. So, I'm moving onto some Valentines Day projects. Today I've made a small Valentines Day shaker card featuring Paper Smooches "Bees" Wise Die and Taylored Expressions "Tuck and Close Notecard" Die.  I can't wait for myself or the kids to give this cute notecard away. Here are some photos of my project and supples are listed below.

The vellum is glued to the back of the layered die cut bees. Between the top layer and second to top layer of die cut bees is a layer of plastic packaging to keep the shaker bits contained inside. 

The shaker material is made up of Wilton sugar cookie topping.

Color Throwdown #422

Hello fellow cardmakers, today I am playing a color challenge with Color Throwdown #422.

I am somewhat addicted to the camouflage technique, but it's ok because I am having a blast doing it. Here are some photos of my card.

The photos don't do it justice. It is difficult to capture the uniqueness of this technique. It is so fun. 

This shot is the closeup that shows all my card imperfections. Embossing powder spewed everywhere and sloppy colored pencil coloring and ink blending. BUT! It's got hella dimension! 

Here is a list of my supplies, Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Crafting!
