Blessings for Baby

Hello!  This week's Featured Stamper is the fabulous Tina DeLong aka GardenDiva.....yay, Tina!!  Tina is having one awesome week......I picked one of her gorgeous cards to feature for ODBD Customer Card of the Day, she won the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge, and now she's been chosen for Featured Stamper!!!  Way to go, Tina!!!  It is an honor to help her celebrate today!  I cased this beautiful card from Tina's gallery to make a baby card for a dear friend.

For my card, I used the same embossing folder, but used the embossed side up.  The quote in the corner is from the Our Daily Bread designs  "Children's Prayers" set;  for the tag, I used the "Ornate Borders and Flowers" set (and custom cutting dies) plus the blessings sentiment from "Ornate Border Sentiments".  The shaker was created by stamping the "Canning Jars" image twice on white cardstock and again on a piece of acetate.  One of the jars (on white) was trimmed by hand in order to give a larger outside border (to hide the foam tape), then the inside of the jar image was trimmed to create the shaker border.  This piece was adhered over the acetate, then the whole thing was turned upside down to apply the foam tape around the edges.  Since the beads and buttons were a bit thick, I had to use two layers of foam tape so that there was room for everything to move around inside the shaker.  The beads and buttons were added, then the bottom jar panel was adhered to the foam tape to hold in the beads.

I love your shaker card, Angie! I made my very first shaker card for the DD gallery this month, and now I'm inspired to try another one with the apothecary jars! Thanks for the inspiration! Hugs!
