Friendships are Gifts - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit

Friendships are Gifts - Pretty Presents Shaker Kit

Hi there!  Laurie Schmidlin here again sharing two more cards that I created using the Pretty Presents Kit!  This is such a great kit that comes with everything you need to create many different projects!  It even comes packaged in a heavy duty storage pocket!

The present dies are such a great addition to this kit!  Not only do they make for wonderful shaker cards like I did here, but can be used on their own long after the shaker elements have been used up! 

Using the smallest of the present dies, I created two little shaker pieces to add to my card.  I adhered them to three strips of the included patterned paper.  The background is a simple watercolor wash using the same colors as the paper.

For embellishment, I added a couple of the bow toppings included in the kit.

The beautiful patterned paper is probably my favorite part of the Pretty Presents Kit!  I love how there are bold patterns along with subtle tone on tone patterns.  Using two of the bold patterns, I adhered a couple of strips for the background.  I then used four of the subtle tone-on-tone patterned papers and one of the present dies to create the gifts.  For embellishment, I added one of the bow toppings to each gift.

Thanks so much for joining me here today!
