First ever shaker cards

I made two shaker cards! I didn’t cause a fire, I didn’t lose important fingers (or unimportant fingers, for that matter) and there was no blood shed.

The group met on Sunday afternoon at the food court at Funan the IT mall. It was a small group of ladies and I was definitely the most inexperienced of them all. The instructor was so patient with me, and only laughed at me like one time lol. (It was totally deserved, so all is good.)

My ink blending is so splotchy. I don’t know how the instructor did hers so seamlessly. Goals!

I was so tired at the end of the session that when she asked if I wanted to re-stamp the sentiment, I said no lol. Hey, it’s shabby chic(k)!

Check out that amazing embossing (that’s the raised bits of paper) – isn’t that cool?! It’s like magic watching the paper roll out of the embossing machine. I need one of those doodads in my life…
