Make A Wish

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
It's been 2 weeks since I have posted on my Blog and with good reason.  We were finishing up regular Preschool and the last 2 weeks were really busy. Then I was preparing for the 2 weeks of Preschool summer camp that I am a part of.

This first week was arts & crafts. So I needed 3 projects for the kids each day. Now I am preparing for next week which is Lego week. I have some fun ideas for the kids. Then it will be off for the rest of the summer. A little break will be good and allow me to catch up on some organizing that I want to do.
So that's my story now let's move onto my card for today. This one I made for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog. I used the new Sweet Unicorns and Fairytale Birthday dies to create a shaker card for a little girl. Shaker cards are fairly easy to make and give the wow factor to a card.

Step 1: I started by cutting my circle on a piece of white cardstock measuring 3 3/4" x 5". Attached a window sheet that measured 4" x 3 1/2". Used foam tape and ran it around my circle opening. Used dimensional adhesive to make sure the card is the same height all the way around. I used my powder tool on the inside of the strip to cut down on the stickiness. That way the sequins won't cling to it.

Step 2: I cut my make a wish words in Stampin'-Up gorgeous grape cardstock and secured it with Ranger multi-matte medium to a piece of highland heather cardstock. This panel measured 3 3/4" x 5". I wanted some color in the shaker background.

Added the sequins to the inside of the circle. I used a little bit more than I thought I might need because I wanted the 4 year old recipient to be able to shake it. Placed the sentiment panel on top of the foam tape. Since it is the same size as the shaker panel I lined it up at the top first.

Step 3: I added a layer of gorgeous grape card stock to this panel The layering panel measures 4" x 5 1/4". 

To finish off my card, I added the unicorn images

I scattered some pink enamel dots and attached panel to the pink card base. The card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". 

Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
