MFT January Card Kit Countdown--Day 2




Are you ready for more YAY for You Card Kit inspiration? Today I'm sharing a
colorful shaker card that any little kid (or big kid!) would love to receive.


I started off by ink distressing a rainbow pattern on a piece of watercolor
card stock, and die cut the YAY sentiment. I stamped the two part sentiment
and the little monsters with Black Licorice ink.



I doubled up the shaker portion so the sequins would have lots of movement
and backed the letters with the silver sparkle paper from the kit. I mounted
the piece on a Stone Gray card base and added details with a white pigment pen
and colored in the eyeballs with a black gel pen.

Notice the eyebrows on the first monster? Truthfully, I smudged one of the
eyeballs before it was dried and not wanting to start over, I gave him some
eyebrows. A good save, if I do say so myself 😉

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things for more inspiration from
the design team and leave a comment there for a chance to win a $25 prize. This
fun kit will go on sale tomorrow, January 23rd at 9PM EST in the MFT Store!

  8. What a fun shaker card, Donna! A big kid like me would love shaking the card! The monsters are so funny and the bright rainbow colors (ink-distressing) make the card look even more fun. I didn't notice that YOU added the eyebrows until I read your secret - they look so natural and the monster look funnier with the eyebrows! Hideko :-)
