Mickey hand shaker card

I needed to make a thank you card for my Grandson's Kindergarten teacher so this is what I came up with.
I started out with a black A-2 card base folded at the top.   I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes set for the stitched rectangle that I cut in red.   I ran that through my Cuttlebug star embossing folder.  I used a stitched fishtail banner stacks die for the black-and-white polkadot which is from Pebbles - Basics.   I tied a bow around that layer with some red and white bakers twine.  I used a stitched scallop circle die to cut the black for the center.  Using my Cricut expression and an SVG file for the shaker hand I got from my friend Cheryl over at Creative Kuts.  I filled the shaker with some red seed beads.  I backed the shaker and also cut a stitched banner for the sentiment out of some yellow striped pattern paper from my scraps stash. The sentiment I created on my computer and printed and cut out  with the sew stitched fishtail banner die.   I cut some small hearts out of red foil on the Cricut expression to scatter on the front of the card.
On the inside I used my Cricut explore to write the personalized sentiment to his teacher.   I also had it write his name and the school years at the bottom and cut a small Mickey head to place next to his name.  The Mickey head is from Cricut Mickey and friends cartridge.  I cut three more red foil hearts to scatter around inside.  I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitch shapes for the white stitched rectangle.  I left plenty of room for him to personally sign his name also.

One final touch, I had my Cricut Explore Air write out her name on the envelope.
That's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by to see my projects.
