Avery Elle: Weather It

Happy Thursday all!  Spring is here and everything is finally warming up here in northern Virginia:)  This one uses the new stamp set Weather It and the matching dies.  As soon as I saw the sentiment, I knew I would go gold (natch:). 


To make this shaker card, I first stamped the card base with the sun rays from Bright Days.  FYI, I use this 1/4" foam tape to make my shaker cards.  This tape is thin and you can cut slits about every 1/2" to make it easy to curve around circles.  It's a little pricey upfront, but the rolls last forever.  Plus, it makes shakers super easy!  Speaking of shakers, I filled it up with gold hexagon glitter, sequins, and stars:)  I finished it off with shiny gold clouds that I cut with the dies that are also in the Weather It die set.  I love the shape of these clouds!


Until next time!  Don't forget to stop by Heather's blog and check out her Avery Elle card too!  Have a wonderful rest of the week:)  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
