 Hello everyone,

I have been really busy behind the scenes lately with inking and splattering black,purple, orange and ghosts...!!

But today, I have a flat shaker to share...this was my Sister in laws Birthday card..

And all those little shaker bubbles were the anti mold or whatever they are called that you get in your new handbags and shoe boxes..
I just purchased a new dinning room set and there were heaps of these little packets so ,my jars were my craftroom..

A really simple slimline card, the background is from an A4 paper pad, cut twice one smaller than the other, the smaller wrapped inside a plastic bag and added bubbles....

A lovely die cut, for someone special..

Then a gorgeous gold die cut butterfly..

I love this die...

And the finished product..
We went over on the weekend to see her and my brother and every now and then you heard her give it a little shake..she loved it..

Thanks so much for stopping by,
I'm quick tonight cause it is chilly and I want to go watch Netflix series I just started and loving it..
The Chestnut Man..😬, little bit scary, but not too much..

See you month starting tomorrow..

Beautiful card for your Sister in law's birthday. Love your making of a flat shaker card (must give it a try once). That golden butterfly is gorgeous to finish off.
Enjoy the Chestnut Man!

That is a great idea, keeping those anti mold bubbles for recycling purpose. And they make super shaker elements it seems. It's a beautiful, classy design with a twist.
