Now on with the projects. This month it's all about the see through stuff...vellum and acetate.

I started off by making your tradition shaker card. I have made them before but always do something wrong. For once, it turned out right. I used my Cricut to cut some poster board and that was easier than using layers of cardstock I found.

If you would like to make your own shaker card, has a pictorial on how to make three different kinds. I've included the link here:

Last but not least, was a card I made using acetate an embossing folder and my Sizzix BIGkick. I have never done this before and have to say that I just love the way it turned out. I used different types of Tim Holtz's distress inks to color the card stock. I used a sponge to blend the colors and then I used the acetate overtop.

If you would like to try the above technique, here is a link to Two Pink Peas that shows you how:

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today and now it's time to move on to Sharon.
