This month’s kit got everything you need to make 8 fun fall shaker cards. Including a stamp set, mini ink pad, card bases, envelopes, twine, sequins, die cut cardstocks and adhesives.
For my first card (shown above) I followed the kit directions but I also wanted to use the products and made my own design. I used the die cut leaf shapes and added inks to them with a sponge for a realistic looking leaf , adding them falling down the stamped background strip of cardstock. Then tying the twine down the edge, adding the banner and a scattering of sequins across my card.
