My one card swap for Saskia

I'm having a ball making these double shaker boxes. Here's what I made for my OCS partner, Saskia. I think it's so neat to swap cards with someone from the other side of the world! Saskia is from Belgium! I think it will get there in time since I just mailed it out.


Isn't this a cute image?? Love these owls by Rachel Ann Miller that I got from Little C's! This isn't a new image, but one of my many favorites. The DSP is from SU and is a specialty textured DSP . I love the weight of these textured papers. The word Friend is from the set Fundmental Phrases (one of my faves!) and I used the small, large and scallop oval punches. Flowers by Hero Arts which I sponged on Tempting Turquoise and finished off with a square rhinestone brad (by SU). Micro beads from the SU bead duo and those green beads are from Walmart. Got those cool beads the day I fell on the escalator!! Cardstock used: chocolate chip and baja breeze.

Now that I finally finished Part 2 of the double shaker tutorial, I'm on a roll making double shaker boxes for some raks that I'll be sending out soon. Thanks for coming by today!

I loved those owls too and bought them and then didn't like the way I colored them and so I never used them again...you colored them so cute! I want to get into making these double shaker boxes, but haven't had the energy or the time! but they will be great RAKS to give! I have to go and buy some of those backing thingees so I can prop them up! this is a great OCS!
