How adorable is this shaker card I created using the Beautiful Ride stamp set from Catherine Pooler? I began by stamping the sketch plaid background stamp with sweet sixteen CP ink on white CP cardstock in my MISTI. I kept everything in place, and then stamped again with WOW embossing ink. Next I removed the cardstock, added Wanderlust WOW embossing glitter, and heat set. This embossing glitter gives a lovely, soft gold sheen, but allows the ink color to show through the embossing. So pretty!

I stamped all of the cute images onto Xpress It cardstock, Copic colored, and then used the coordinating dies to cut everything out. Next I used the Skyscape mini cover plate die to cut a background and shaker frame from white CP cardstock. After adhering acetate with Scor tape to the shaker frame, I glued the white background onto the trimmed 4 1/8″ X 5 3/8″ stamped background, and added Darice foam strips to my shaker window. Then I added Springfield CP sequins to the white background, and adhered my shaker window.

I die cut a small vellum tag (something from the new CP release I snuck in), and embossed the sentiment in silver embossing powder before adding a white twine bow. I used lots of foam dots to adhere all of the die cut images for dimension, adhered the sentiment tag, and finally added more Springfield sequins before gluing everything to an A2 card base.

So what do you think? I love this sweet stamp set, and thought the sentiment would be perfect for this blog hop. Thank you so much again for stopping by my blog today. I would so appreciate you following me on all of my social media, and I usually go live on Facebook every Thursday night at 8 PM EDT. Love and crafty hugs!
