Sneak Peek 'Shaker Card' - 'Case the Designer' Challenge Global Design Project #gdp016

It's Boxing Day! 
After a lovely Christmas Day with my 3 favourite boys, we are now having a relaxing and chilled out Boxing Day. The sun is shining and we will be spending some time at the River for a bit of family fun on our Stand Up Paddle Boards. 
I did find some time for this weeks Global Design Project 'Case the Designer' Challenge. This week we CASE Bibi Cameron. I love Bibi's card and I love her style.
I was inpsired by a few elements and my card has the 
Theme: Shaker card; Layout: Portrait style with circle and sentiment in the centre and Colours: Blue, Whisper White & Gold. 
Plus, I have a Sneak Peek for you at a brand NEW stampset from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue 'Hello'. All will be revealed January 5th, 2016.
I have used Bermuda Bay cardstock as my card base, and coordinating Bermuda Bay DSP from the 'Cherry on Top' DSP Stack. Accents in Whisper White and Gold Foil to finish the theme for this weeks Challenge.
The Gold Cording Trim is as beautiful for Christmas as it is on this 'Hello my friend' card. 
Inside the card is a Gold embossed sentiment and I have added Gold Foil stars from the Confetti Stars Punch. There is also a strip of 'Cherry on Top Washi Tape' at the bottom of the card.
I have CASEd 2 designers this week... I love a 'Shaker' card and I am going to share with you a tutorial on how to make your very own! My gorgeous friend Louise Sharp has a video tutorial - and as you will see my card is slightly different in regards to the dimensions because my card base measures 10.5cm x 14.8cm (29.7cm before folding in half) eg. my window sheet is 3.5" x 3.5". 
Please click here to view Louise's tutorial. She is so clever, and I love her!
With only a few days left of 2015, we wish you peace, love and happiness for wherever you are in the world. If you have any questions about my 'Shaker' card please ask away, and I would love for you to leave a comment. Much love, D x

  5. Hi Denita, shaker cards are amongst my favourite to make and now your card is top of my list to CASE! I love the big shaker window that allows you to see through to the sentiment inside. The colours are lovely, as are all the finishing touches. Merry Christmas and thanks for playing at Global Design Project.
