Growing in Unity Day 1 - Shake It, Baby!

Good morning everyone! I'm the Growing in Unity gal this week over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog, which means I'll be sharing a project created with my Unity stamps with you every day. Five posts in one week; wow! I invite you to come back each day and leave a comment for a chance to win your choice of (2) Itty Bitty stamps! Woohoo! If you're new to my blog, I'd love it if you became a follower and join in the fun over on the Caffeinated Papercuts Facebook page. :)

I decided to start the week with a bang...er, shake! I love shaker cards, and they're just so much fun to make. Seriously, just try making one and not smiling.

Fun and summery, right? The floral washi tape is actually holding together two pieces of acetate; I made a pouch for the handfuls of Pretty Pink Posh sequins I tossed in there. The washi also hides my adhesive lines...sneaky, huh? Stamped behind the acetate pouch is my flower, and...


...greeting! Give the card a shake to see the 'hidden message.' The butterfly I simply stamped, fussy-cut, and popped on with a Glue Dot. Note to self: foam adhesive doesn't stick to acetate well. Unless you want to chase butterflies, don't use it again.


Thanks for stopping by today - I hope to see you tomorrow for Day 2!

Happy Crafting!
