I recently found out someone I know was battling a serious illness and they beat it. I immediately wanted to make them an extra special card, here it is! Start by cutting a 4 x 5.25 inch piece of card stock

and another at 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Then cut a shape from the smaller block and a circle smaller than the shape you chose out of the larger block.  

 

Big shape small block, larger block smaller circle.

Then mark the front of your notecard base and cut out the same circle. 

 

Mark the card.

Mark the card.

Also mark the inside of the card to line up with the opening.

Cut a piece of acetate the same size as the 4 x 5.25 block and attach it.

Cut a piece of craft foam to 4 x 5.25 and cut a bigger circle out of it.

I decided to stamp a small flower on the front and added some rain stones.

Attach another small piece of acetate behind the circle opening on the bigger block.

Next, pick out what you want to put inside of your shaker and attach the layers.

Now attach the front to the card base and line up the circle cut outs.

Now you can stamp your sentiment where it will be visible through the front. 

 

You'll see the "hope" through the front.

My favorite thing to do right now! I have been making cards like crazy and using markers and stamps. These are the cards I've made in the past week. 

 

Tons of thanks!

This was done with Copic markers, distress ink, and then matted.
