Stamptacular Sunday DT ~ Aperature

Whew, the weeks are flying past... Im afraid the snow's going to be falling soon at this rate. It's crazy! So it's another Challenge from Stamptacular Sunday!!! This week our challenge is to create an Aperature card! LOVE IT! As STamptacular explains:

Create an aperture card. This is a card that has a hole in the card front that allows you to see a part of the inside of the card...This is usually done by stamping the main image on the INSIDE of your card and cutting a hole in the center of the card front so you can see the image when the card is closed. Hope that makes sense...

Our awesome, amazing sponsor this week is My Favorite Things! And they're offering up a $25 Gift Certificate! YAY! So start chopping holes in the front of your cards and join in!! :o)

On to my card for the challenge!!!
I have made a shaker card/aperature. So fun! I just loved this image from MFT By the Seashore Everything about it just says summer. calm, relax, *sigh* right.... where was I? LOL Ok, here's a better look at the card.
So, to make the shaker I've used some BoBunny packaging, I stamped and coloured the image in copics, then I've also died the tiny beads with my Copic refill ink (these take overnight to dry....just to forewarn you! LOL) Anyhow, I was quite happy with the shaker aspect. Then all my papers are from the new BoBunny Paradise line. I had fun making this card.. but did take me a day or 2.... LOL
Here's a peak at the inside.
Well I think that's it for today! I have a kid free week this week. My son is visiting a friend so I should have lots of guilt free craft time! Who hoo!! But then my poor puppy's upcoming surgery is getting closer..... and there will be much less craft time Im afraid... :o(

Ok... off to bed for me! :o)
Cheers all
