Reading Rainbow

Wishing You a Simply Magical Day

For this shaker card I punched a matching hole in the card base so the sentiment stamped on the window is more visible. Since the new challenge at Simon Says is Spots and Dots, I thought this card fit the bill with the round window and sequins.

 The unicorn stamp actually has it standing on a cloud but I had to cut it off to fit better in the window. I used lots of Stickles which adds a little extra weight and lots of extra sparkle.

The foam tape was two layers high to give a little more depth to the shaker. That meant there was twice as much adhesive for them to stick on. I covered the inside edge with Stickles to add a little extra sparkle and to cover the stickiness. I also added a few dots on the the inside of the window. The front window is cut from "clear cardstock", the back window is from clamshell packaging because it is a bit sturdier.

Just a mention that when cutting foam tape I am so grateful to have a pair of Tim Holtz non-stick scissors.
