robot birthday card

I'm back for my final guest designer spot this month for the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge! It has been so fun designing with those talented ladies this month!

The last challenge of the month is "We Can See Clearly" which means we're using acetate or vellum.

I decided to make a masculine shaker card for my son's birthday.

I started with a gray card base and applied translucent embossing paste through the Dot Fade stencil to give it some texture. I layered a couple papers from the Time Machine 6x6 paper pad. It's a really cool masculine pack with lots of clock parts and gears. I made sure to distress the edges too.

 I made a pocket using a page protector and the Fuse tool, stamped a robot from Robots Blueprints on it, stuffed it with mini gears, gold and silver sequins, and mini beads. I wanted the shaker portion to be used as a bookmark, so I added a metallic eyelet and ribbon to the top. And then to make it easy to remove from the card, I attached the shaker using clear photo corners. And finally, the sentiment is from Friendship Messages.

Thanks for stopping by and come link up your projects for a chance to win $50 to the Simon Says Stamp store!
