Breast Cancer Awareness Shaker Card with Julie Nutting Doll Stamps


Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Because Breast Cancer is hideous and effects the entire family....
....here are my little Julie Nutting kids.  They are giving support to their grandma who is a survivor. It says, "We Support Our Grandma With Love".  Breast Cancer effects everyone in the family.  Please note this is not for my mother or my grandmother - thank goodness.

This is a shaker card 

  • Because cancer needs to shaken up and tossed on it's butt end to the curb. 
  • Because everyone in the family is shaken.
  • Because we need to shake up reality and realize it's still claiming too many lives
  • Because research needs a good shake
  • Because I want to shake the hands of all those brave survivors and hug those going through the battle.
The little boy stamp is Toby.  The little girl stamp is called Little Girl.  hahahah she has no name.  I think Julie needs to fix that!  A sweet little angel with no name seems so wrong. 

I also used the wonderful Prima Garden Fable paper collection for my card and dolls.

My Card Secrets
Inside my heart shaker card, I've added sequins and some glass beads.  I also used "fun foam"  as the layer to create my shaker card. What I realized??? Fun foam is not just for kids. 

I also stamp several layers for the dress and stagger them using more fun foam for movement and volume. 

I also added some Stickles glitter glue to the dolls as accents to provide more dimension. 
I colored her sweet hair by inking it first then drawing tiny circles with a fine tip art pen for her hair.
