Paper Hug Shaker

 My inspiration for this card came from this months monthly class at Kit and Clowder. The class is called botanical notes and the first chapter starts with colouring a vintage, aged envelope. This was where I got the idea for the edges

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

A sheet of kraft card was cut with the plate die. Around the edged in stripes I blended DR5, CR9, CR7.

Acetate was adhered to the wrong side and foam tape was added onto the back of the panel and each individual pocket filled with sprinkles

This was adhered onto a separate A6 piece of Kraft card.

The sentiment was stamped in the red garnet Midas ink as was the made with love stamp.

The racoon was stamped and coloured using IG10,IG8,IG6 / IG4, IG2, IG1 Envelop DR5, CR9, CR7

These were fussy cut out and added before the shaker part was adhered onto an A6 card base

Thank you for reading
