Hi friends! It's the first challenge of the year for The Paper Players, and I am very pleased to be your hostess. The first challenge of the month is always a theme challenge, and I've chosen "Punny Valentine". If you're not sure what I mean by "Punny", check our the work of our fabulous Design Team for some inspiration. I'm quite tickled with all of their fun creations!
I've always had a love/ hate relationship with shaker cards- I love the way they look and what fun they are to shake, but the contents always seem to either escape, stick to the edges or both. For this card I used a new tool that Santa brought me, the Fuse tool. I think this may be the solution to my problems! My sequins are nicely contained and don't stick to the edges. I see many more shaker cards in my future.
