A Tini Note

Happy Weekend!

I broke my favourite water glass at work ages ago. It had different patterned, coloured apples on it. This highball glass was very cute! Since then I haven't found another glass that I like. The other day my lovely colleague Jenny who sits next to me came back from her lunch break and she found and bought me a glass. It has different small flowers on it and it is so sweet! So to thank her for thinking of me and her wonderfulness, I made her this card.
It couldn't be more suitable to give her a shaker card of various shaped glasses to say thank you for my water glass!! ^_^ This is a small 4" x 4" card. I used the Free Spirits stamp set and its coordinating dies from Paper Smooches for this card. I used Versa Mark ink and clear embossing power to create a tone on tone back ground. Here is a picture from the side:
I filled these glasses by using nail art beads and a very small amount of sequins. I actually found these nail art beads in my local pound shop. It comes in these cute small jars with twelve beautiful colours.
These beads are so so tiny and they are fantastic for shaker cards. The thickness of a children's fun foam will be enough for these beads to run freely in their space. No bulkiness, easy to put the card in the post and twelve colours for a pound! You can't go wrong with that!! Hee hee!! ^_^
When I say sequins.... they are actually the middle part of the sequins. Crafters never let things go to waste! All those little circles that fall out from the centre of sequins, that is what I added!
I love this card so much, I made another two but filled in different coloured beads each time!
I am also entering this card to:
I picked the image on the right and I think I did use all the colours!! ^_^
Hope your weekend is going well and thank you for stopping by!
