Spring Is Coming Blog Hop Day 3 ~Rockin Robin!

Welcome back!  Hope you enjoyed joining in on our Spring Is Coming Blog Hop Days 1 & 2 and are back for some more inspiration today!!!


We are blog hopping for three days to give you a great peek at the new release!  Be sure to leave comments at all of the stops along the way every day....for your chance to win a FABULOUS PRIZE!

The winner will be selected on February 22 and announced on February 23 in our Monday Inspiration post.  Good Luck!

I have a fun tutorial to share with you for a peek-a-boo shaker card.  I gave you some ideas of this a week ago, but here is the process.
Supplies:
I used a frame/card set from The Paper Cut, but you could create your own frame/card with your dies of choice.
JJ0090 Stacked Robins
EE0207 Rockin Robin
Copic Markers
Acetate (2 pieces)
Foam Tape
Scor-Tape
Birdseed ( or in a pinch I made some faux birdseed up with Poppy Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Quinoa and Mustard Seed)
Assorted Prima Flowers
Pearl Stickers
Glue Dots

Tape the acetate on with some ScorTape.  I wasn't thinking here and did the edges of the card, but I ended up covering that up with foam tape.
Not pictured, but I also added tape around the window on the front of the card and added acetate.
Here I added the foam tape, so the top of the card is popped up and the birdseed floats between the two pieces of acetate.

I added a piece of newsprint designer paper to the inside off the card so that it shows through the clear acetate shaker box.  Just be sure to write your message so that it doesn't peek out as well!

I added the birds and the flowers onto the front of the card and there you have it!

Thanks so much for hopping with us...I hope you have been inspired!
