Dads and Grads Theme Week (with Pretty Pink Posh) : Day 3

Three days in a row! When was the last time did this ever happen! Today is baby at home day plus we are road tripping tomorrow, so this post is going to be short and sweet. You can find day 1 of this theme week here, along with day 2 here.


For today’s cards I did some really quick coloring, with minimal blending. Since the images are so small, no one will be the wiser. Using the coordinating I cut them out to use as accents on the shaker windows.


For the ‘congrats’ shaker, I started by diecutting the Stitched Film Strip Die (from Pretty Pink Posh) 6 times and glued them together. I really wanted the sections to stay separated, that why layered the diecuts. I did add a layer of acetate after the first colored diecut. To add a little interest to card front, I stamped the clustered confetti stamp with a brown ink and added the sentiment. After filling the shaker with sequins, and closing it off with a second sheet of acetate. Once the glue dried, I attached it to the card front and added the colored images for the final touch.


For the second card, you can use a ‘happy father’s day’ sentiment, but since I don’t need anymore of them, I just used a ‘happy birthday’ sentiment as I’m always struggling with masculine cards. To created the shaker for this I die cut the storybook 1 and scalloped frame die from some colored card stock together. I was going to keep the windows separated, but I ran out of time and couldn’t find my thin foam strips, #momlife. Instead I just added a double layer of 3M foam tape, to create the shaker window, along with some acetate. I filled with with sequins and attached it to the card front, after stamping the sentiment. Just like the congrats card, I added my colored images to finish off the card.

Hope these cards inspire you to create something soon from your stash!
