Shaker Cards

August is "Shaker Card" month at Lilac Inkers. When I returned from Hawaii in February I brought 2 Tina Wenke stamps home with me. I made a card for Card Patterns last April using one of these stamps. I quickly found out that they were like "Lay's Potato Chips"...you can't (eat) make one! Our Lilac Inkers group meets the second Wednesday of every month, and we vote on which cards we want to make. In May we voted to do "Shaker Cards" in August. Here are samples of the cards we will be making.




I used clear stamps for the greetings because I could curve them to fit the oval shaped cut out. The images are versatile enough to fit almost any occasion.



The blue card will be used for my niece's baby shower....she's having a boy! These are 4 of the 12 different shaker cards that I made......told you they were like Lay's Potato Chips! :-)

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
