Today I have a fun interactive card to share with you.
I usually give money to the older kids in our family for Christmas - there is no way I could choose appropriate gifts for them! So I need interesting ways to present money… and today's card fits the bill.
First, I created a shaker tag using some Hero Arts acetate tags and some of my new Sparkle and Shine Shaker Selection (available in my shop and on its way to Simon Says Stamp right now!). I simply stitched two tags together, leaving a gap at the bottom, then added the shaker mix and finished the stitching.
Next, I stamped a Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cat onto some MFT paper, trimmed it out, then adhered to a white cat cut with the coordinating dies. I added a santa hat, then die cut some tiny holes near the cat's paws and threaded through some Lawn Fawn Silver Sparkle Cord. Finally, I trimmed down some gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio paper to use as a backdrop. ETA - I adhered the tag to the card with strong double sided tape - I added lots of tape but only behind the cat so it did not show through. It's secured really well. :)
Once the money is tied in place, it looks just like my little kitty is holding onto it.
And here you can see a close up of the gorgeous snowflakes in my Sparkle and Shine Shaker mix - they have a beautiful rainbow effect when they catch the light. :)
That's all for today.
Thank you so much for your visit. I'll be back again very soon…
Bye for now.
