The photo inspiration for the Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge #10 is really pretty.
I had also just purchased a metal die from Couture Creations that was nearly the same pattern as the floor mat. I desperately wanted to do a shaker card again but have it in the die-cut shape. What a disaster! I cut 8 pieces of cardstock in the shape but of course when I layered them, the cardstock around the edges didn't match up. So spent ages trimming (and swearing) and it looks okay from afar. Have now realised if I want to do this again, is to make the box with a rectangular frame and put shape die-cut on top. Much easier!!
The paper underneath the shaker box is from Teresa Collins 'Save this Date' which I thought matched perfectly with the shelf paper. The next paper layer is from the same paper pad and has similar patterning to the floor mat. I used Teresa Collins sequins and also some from The Warehouse.
I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge as their theme is 'Transparent'. Have never entered this challenge before but thought why not.
Max is dying of starvation (as only a 7yr boy can who only ate an hour ago.....) and wants some lunch. Will rustle up something and then come back to post my other two cards.
