Hello everyone, I hope everyone is healthy and well. Through this time of Covid 19 I have made a few “Thinking of You” cards. I made this one for a friend who really wanted to send a card to a special loved one in her life. This time is so hard on everyone and I thought this card would brighten someone’s day. It is also Crazy4Challenges time and this weeks challenge is to make a slim line card. A slime line card is a long skinny card, my card is 4”x9” so it fits the challenge 😀
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page, or TikTok 😊

I really want this carded to have some fun bold colours, all of the cardstock is from Stampin up and the colours are listed below.
I thought a black and white cardbase would help the bright shaker boxes POP
I used the “Boundless Shaker” technique to make the sides of this card. The pink and orange shakers appear as if they are going over the edge. I got the idea from seeing a VIDEO from Olga Direktorenkoq.
Now for the inside.
Originally I just scored the circles that were going to be placed across the inside fold of the card, but they buckled when I folded the card so I cut the circles and in half where they would have been scored then added them to either side of the fold.
