Hello You - Gorjuss Girls

Well, I had to get in a shaker card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! I don't often make them, but they add such a fun element to the card.

The cute Gorjuss Girl was coloured with Distress Markers on watercolour paper and I paper pieced her dress.  This was such a cute stamp! It comes with little baby foxes - I can't wait to use them!

I embossed the background shapes with a wood grain embossing folder using Core'dinations paper and lightly sanding the background.

I used a sketch from the Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge Blog, but oops, I was a little too late to post it over there!

I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities and Shapeabilities for my cuts. Instead of adding a pre-made shaker element, I started from scratch and added a piece of clear acetate die cut in the same size on top.  I glued it around the edges after adding some Tim Holtz Clear Distress Glitter inside to create my shaker.

 The sentiment shaker was stamped with a greeting from Simon Says Stamp - one of their exclusive stamp sets that came with the February card kit.

Inside I used more Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamps, Distress inks and the stars from the Gorjuss stamp set.

Wishing everyone a happy Monday evening! We had another beautiful day here :)
