Stand Tall and Be Fabulous Shaker

I need a bit of warmth and good vibes in my life right now, so I thought to share this happy card I created using Catherine Pooler Designs Stamps and Dies. (affiliate links used)

This card started with an Ultra Smooth White Cardstock Base, and then I tucked in some Spring in Bloom Patterned Paper on the top and bottom of the card. Then, I chose a fun and flirty purple based paper, also from the Spring in Bloom Patterned Paper pack, and die cut a panel, using the Tags, Etc. Dies. From that panel, I die cut a flamingo from the Stand Tall Dies. Before adhering the panel to the card base, I stamped a sentiment from the Stand Tall Stamp Set, and added some dimensional adhesive to contain the Springfield Sequin Mix to create a shaker.  I also doodled the border and the flamingo by tracing the outlines created from the dies, to add a whimsical touch to the card.

I finished the card by die cutting the leaves from the Leave Me in Paradise Die Set, and hand drew details on the leaves. To finish the card, I grounded the flamingo with some Nuvo Drops. 

This shaker style card was super easy to create, and I think is so much fun!
