Craftin Desert Divas January Release

Today I am so excited to be sharing my first official card
 for the Craftin Desert Divas digital design team!
This month they are releasing an adorable digital file called Koala Couple!
This sweet file is just in time for Valentine's Day and can be used for
any Love themed card or even a baby card!
It features an adorable Koala Couple but it could easily be interpreted as 
a mother or father with a baby.
Here is my card using this sweet new digital image.

The first thing I did was color those sweet koalas with my copic markers
and cut them out using my Scan n Cut machine.
Next I took the second largest Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies
and cut out a frame using some pink polka dot paper.
Since I was making a shaker card I cut out a piece of acetate
that was slightly smaller than the frame for my window and adhered it as a window.
I backed the window frame with 2 layers of foam tape so I could
fill the well with all of the pretty sequins.
Before I added the sequins I stamped a sentiment from 
Mice To Meet You on the card base so that it would show through 
the window. The next step was to sprinkle some sequins around the 
sentiment so I could add the shaker window over them.
I used a mix of Sweetness and True Love Sequins.
Finally I laid the shaker window down over the sequins and the 
sentiment.  I positioned the adorable Koala Couple on the lower left
corner of the window and added some flower and leaf die cuts 

I had a lot of fun making this card.  Shaker cards are one of my favorite
kind of cards to make! I hope you'll check out the Craftin Desert Divas
Facebook Gallery for some more inspiration from the other 
design team members.  I'll be back next week with another
new release image and card to share with you!

Have a great day, I already am!
