Sending Love

Hello Crafty Friends!

It is time time to say goodbye to 2016 and to get ready to welcome 2017. My way of getting ready for this was to play with the shaker card concept. It's not a strength of mine but I wanted to try out some ideas for a demo next year.

I got out the Tweet Love set with its Cooradinating CUTplorations Dies. The idea was to cut the balloons from white card and funky foam for my shaker element and add the coloured balloons as topper. So far so good ... until I forgot to add the piece of acetate between the foam and the white card ... fear not ... another layer could solve the problem ....

It didn't turn out exactly as I envisaged it ... nevertheless I should give you a few ideas to spark your imagination.

That's it from me for this year.
Wishing you a wonderfully magical 2017, may it be the best year ever!
