Beetle Shaker

It was my partner's birthday last week and, for me, the closer the relationship, the more I struggle with a card idea! Over the years we've had lots of buses (his hobby is classic buses) and frogs (because he likes them) and so I needed to think of something different.

He also has a 1970s VW Beetle - it's not on the road at the moment but he just replaced the brake system. I stamped the 'Beetle' (Flora and Fauna)  , masked it and stamped the scene (Clearly Besotted) behind; coloured them with Promarkers and made it into a shaker card. He seemed pleased.

I'd like to enter:

I am sure he was pleased, as it's a thoughtful and fun shaker card. Great masking to create the scene too x.

The sweet VW Beetle looks fab in front of the scene and encased in a shaker card. I'm like you, I struggle with any card for my husband... I think we put too much pressure on ourselves to get it perfect, thing is... they love anything we make even if we dont. Stay safe Marina x

Personal cards are the best. This is awesome!

What you describe about cards for close ones is exactly how I feel too. But those are the ones receiving the most cards from me through the years, so it’s not always that easy to come up with new ideas, or supplies, for them. I’d say you nailed it with this one. Making it a shaker makes it extra special.

What a pretty card! I love that you put the scene in a shaker and I like the way that it is framed in kraft. Cute!
