Hello. Welcome. The Marianne Design Challenge is a wintery card. I decided to keep it bright and use a robin and some winter greenery and make a shaker card. I like shaker cards. I always have such a beautiful picture in my head of how it's going to turn out. In reality, there are always way more challenges that you would possibly imagine.
Some people seem to just throw shaker cards together. I am not one of those people. Today I managed to explode a large tub of glitter, a really large tub of glitter, in my craft room! I couldn't get the lid off, and then the sprinkle dingsen jammed, and the lid fell off!! Then, when I tried to put it back on, the container split, in a dramatic dump all that glitter on the floor sort of way. I was proud of myself. I didn't shout or swear. I did look at it in disbelief that the shaker card gremlins had managed to strike again. And then I discovered, that while I was on holiday, my dustbuster had lost all it's charge and that large pile of glitter attached itself to my socks and the cats paws and now the house is looking amazingly festive. Hey ho, ho ho ho..........
So here's my card. I like it. I will deal with the escaped glitter later....
I used Marianne dies. The star wreath die is LR0126 and the pine branch is from the same set cut from two shades of green. I used dies COL1301 to construct the robin.
I used wood effect paper and funky foam behind to make the shaker. I cut the foam with circle dies from CR1331 and added some glitter. Just noticed it looks like robin is safe and warm in his box and it's snowing outside LOL.
Thanks for dropping by. I'm off to scoop some glitter.... Hugz
