Karen has a great gallery and I really liked her Happy, Happy, Happy card. I can always use cards that work for guys and we have several guy birthdays coming up. I used Simon's stencil for the striped BG, applying oxide inks cracked pistachio and peacock feathers. I then used the new birthday die, by My Favorite Things, to cut out just the big part, positioning it in my Big Shot to not cut the bottom. I cut the bottom words out of hawaiian shores and mint julep, to attach. I then cut just the big part again, out of white cardstock 4 times, to have room for the beads in the shaker. The clear cardstock was attached to the stenciled layer and the additional 4 layers of white attached to the card base. Here's Karen's fun card that inspired me.
