Beautiful You Shaker Card

Last week at my card classes we made Shaker Cards.   After the class, I thought about how much I like Shaker Cards but don’t make them very often.

So…the next day, I created this card.


I made this card especially for my granddaughter’s birthday later this month.  She is a dancer, LOVES the color purple, and will be turning 10.  Can’t wait to “see”, or at least hear about, her response.

Notice the Highland Heather layer on top of the card base.  Directions for how I created it are include in this post, below the list of supplies used on the card.

Stamp Set – Beautiful You, Tropical Chic
Cardstock – Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Pool Party, Whisper White
Ink – Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories – Foam Brayer, Aquapainter, Window Sheet,  Sequins, Tropical Thinlits, Animal Friends Thinlits Dies, Glitter Enamel Dots, Ivory, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape, & Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends, Foam Adhesive Strips, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Fancy Fold – “More Than One Score” Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.”

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Have you seen a Pop Up Panel Card?  I was recently introduced to them and had to try my hand at it.  On first glance it looks like a regular card.


But when you open it up, wowza!


I left the inside blank for now.  Easy to add a sentiment when I’m ready to send the card.  It would make a great Mother’s Day card, but is suitable for a birthday or friendship card too.  A Pop Up Panel Card is sure to impress whoever receives it.

Stamp Set – Beautiful You
Ink – Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, Momento Black
Cardstock – Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Shaded Spruce, Whisper White, Garden Expressions Designer Series Paper
Accessories – Stitched Shapes Framelits, Big Shot, Whisper White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Calypso Coral and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends, Mini Glue Dots, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive,

There are several styles and variations for Pop Up Panel Cards, but I found instructions by Dawn Griffith to be the easiest to follow.  You can see her video here.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 12, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Anything with Wings” projects. Don’t miss the fun!
