What's Shakin'? - Guest Designer Post for 2 Creative Chicks Ch# 2

2 Creative Chicks

We hope you'll submit a project!
Be sure to visit their challenge blog for all the details, rules, and prize information.

When I saw Googlie Eyes was the challenge theme, I thought how fun! I love using Googlie eyes. I went to Google and did a search for Silhouette Cameo Googlie Eye projects, and I saw the cutest card there! Come to find out, it's a card my friend, Tracy, made last year! I asked Tracy if I could COPY AND SHARE her card (my own version) and she said sure. Please visit Tracy's blog to see her original card idea.  Here is my take on her card (I tried to be true to her card design as much as possible because I think Tracy ROCKS in the talent department.)

Here is my "Tracy Maracas" card...

  • Card base is 5 1/2" x 4"
  • Striped paper (K&C "Lion Sleeps") 5 1/4" x 3 3/4"
  • Maracas is a FREE SVG file from CUT FILES
  • Top Yellow part of Maracas are inked with CTMH "Honey"
  • Orange part of Maracas are inked with CTMH "Sunset"
  • Blue part of Maracas are inked with CTMH "Pacifica"
  • Mouths are hand drawn with Black Sharpie
  • Burlap is from my sister's stash (Thanks!)
  • Recollections Flowers & Orange rhinestone flower center
  • Button from TSQ FB store
  • Stampin' Up "Modern Label" punch for sentiment and matting
  • Cardz TV Stamps "FAQ" set for sentiment inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Thanks for stopping by today, guys! Have a great Monday, and come join in the challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks!  :) Janis
