So many of my Smiles

Hi. I have a sweet shaker card today and a guest design for Doodles Paper Playground!

I started by stamping the flower frame in black ink and then coloring it with copics. I used the coordinating die to cut out the interior of the frame. With my Misti, I laid a top folding A2 card down and laid the colored panel on top. To place the sentiment, I put it in the middle of the cutout frame and closed my Misti on it. Then removed the colored panel and stamped the sentiment on the card.

Using a piece of acetate from an old package, I adhered it to the inside of the frame and then added foam tape around the back of the frame making sure the corners meet. Then I used more foam tape on the rest of the back of the panel.

I added the sparkle blend on top of the sentiment and glued a few embellishments around the sentiment. Then I took the backing off the foam tape and placed the colored panel on top. My daughter insisted that I color the little girl for this card, too. I am glad she did :) Here is a close up of the beautiful sparkle blend I used.

Stamps and Die: Avery Elle - Love birds
 Inks: Misc copics, MFT - Black licorice
