I belong to a stampers group in Tucson, AZ called SALSA, Stampers At Large Stamping Away. Each month we (those who want to participate) are giving a mystery item to incorporate in a card for the next month. Last month we got an assortment of things in a blue gift bag. I actually made 2 cards. The first I didn't particularly like so I took a couple things off of it to use on the second card.
Doesn't this look different! In the bag was a card with the bird on it, the paper clip, some plastic bubbles, and envelopes with the security design on them. I used everything!
I made the bubbles into miniature shakers but decided to lightly crush them for a different look. On my first card I accidentally crushed one and liked how it looked. I sprayed some of FSJ's new Lovely Blue Pearly Color Splash on some of the security paper after I glued it to card stock and die cut it for a great shimmer look. I also die cut the Always Smile die and added some dots from my stash.
Here's a picture of the card I got:
Judy, our club president, made this. Out of all the items in the mystery bag she used only the bird card and a piece of a security envelope. I do like the 2 feathers that she added to her card.
