Shake-a-smile!

Hi there!

I had so much creating this card... with all this cute smiley faces on my desk, I found myself smiling all the way from the beginning right to the point where I am typing up this post!

A close up:

I created the cutting file for the shaker in the Silhouette Studio, by welding the offset shape from the 'smile' to a basic frame.

The smiley faces are part of a set of 7 emoticons by Spellbinders.

I think you are going to see a lot of them in the future on my blog! Each face are made up of 2 layers. So the black you can see is actually negative space peeping through the top yellow layer.

Yes... and off course although not visible, everything is kept inside by an acetate layer.

I have put the 2 phrases of my sentiment together to share with you:




Sharing at the following challenges:

Less is more   ~ Use acetate or vellum

Inkspirational challenges  ~ Black & one color

Seize the birthday ~ No toppings

Happy little stampers  ~ Anything goes with dies

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

Love this adorable card! Do you happen to remember what font you used for the word smile? The smiley faces are just too cute. I thought you might have cut them with the cameo too, but then realized it's a die. Don't think I've ever seen that one though...need to check it out! BTW?..your cards always make me smile!

Hi Hannelie - thanks for sharing this freebie. It's perfect for a male card I need to make (for my daughter's director who she doesn't know that well) so your card and inspiration is just what I needed. Thank you!
