My Favorite Things MTFWSC367 Challenge: Kindness Card


This card for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge MFTWSC367 was so fun to make!  The Papertrey Ink Make It Market Kit: Shakers + Sprinkles makes shaker cards easy peasy.  I used the rectangle frame die and double-sided foam adhesive to cut the frame.  

I had originally planned to stamp the "throw" part of the sentiment directly onto the acetate but got carried away making my shaker and forgot all about it.  

I didn't want a large block of patterned paper behind the confetti, I thought it would be too busy.  Then I had the idea to use vellum and just subdue the polka dot background.  I love how it turned out and it helped the shaker pieces shake about a little easier.  The confetti I die-cut from the Shakers + Sprinkles dies then added a few other sequins and such I had in my stash.


In the photo, the Kindness looks black but it's actually die-cut from My Favorite Things Steel Grey stock.  I really love their stock.  It's nice and thick so it cuts really well but it also has just a tiny bit of texture to it that I really like.  I bought this die to make random acts of kindness cards but hadn't had a chance to use it yet until this challenge.  I cut it twice from the grey and then backed it with another white die-cut to make it pop a little more.

I used the Stitched Sentiments Strips Die-Namics to cut the rest of the sentiment which I typed on the We R Memory Keepers Typecast typewriter that I gifted to myself for Christmas!  I'm loving that thing!  So quick and easy.

I stole the Give Much from the patterned paper pad that I used on the card base and edged it with a little washi tape.

Thanks for checking out my project for the MTFWSC367 Sketch Challenge!
