Guest Designer - Holly Gagnon with a fun Shaker card!!

Holly here from Ribbons & Glue and I'm thrilled to be the Guest Designer today for My Craft Spot. When I'm looking to purchase a set of stamps my rules are:  #1 Will I use it again? & #2 Is it versatile?    Unfortunately, these rules tend to fly outta my craft room window when it comes to everything else I buy.  OK, Who am I kidding ?  I have NO rules when it comes to craft supplies. But, the Inside & Out, Set #2 stamps from My Craft Spot totally did receive the two rule check mark from me! 

 Shaker Box Card

I love to give handmade birthday cards but giving handmade cards with a lil' treat makes somebody's day extra special. Since the In & Out #2 set has coordinating stamps for the inside and out of a card, (duh-like the name says so) I thought this would be the perfect time to make a Shaker Box Card. I actually couldn't find a shaker box cut file in the Silhouette store (say whaaaat??) so I made my own by using a 3D Crayon Box cut file and welding a label to make a picture window. 


Make Unique Cards by Adhering a Piece of Cardstock to the Back of a Die Cut

To make my Shaker Box into a card, I adhered a piece of coordinating cardstock onto the back of the box. Yep-easiest way to make a card out of a die cut shape. Totally Easy Peasy!
