 I started my card off with a hand-drawn ribbon awareness shape traced
onto a piece of stiff felt and then trimmed out:
Next, I took small snippets of ribbon in shades of red, yellow, green and blue and
adhered them to the felt with fabric glue.  Afterwards, I trimmed all of the ribbons
down so that they matched up with the edge of the felt.  

To keep the cut edges from fraying, I dabbed on a fray-check solution.
Finally, I searched the internet for an inspirational sentiment regarding Autism. 
I printed out the sentiment and made sure that the typography didn't extend
past the window opening of the ribbon.

That's all from me!  You're next stop is Valerie Gee's Blog.
I hope that you enjoy today's special blog hop...thanks for joining us!

  9. FABULOUS card Shellye!!!
    LOVE your ribbon of ribbons (great idea) and your sentiment too!!!


  10. I just love everything about your card but most of all that it is recognizing autism awareness. I so wish that we could educate more people on autism. Being a parent of a child with autism, I find I constantly have to fight for my sons right just to be a child and be treated fairly. So many people, even teachers, don't understand how autism affects children differently.

  11. Awesome! I am also a parent of an autistic child and I really appreciate this hop and the awareness you are bringing to autism! Thanks! :)

  12. I love all the fun ribbons you used!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
