Festive Friday Challenges - FF0097 - National Cookie Day

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and an Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge FF #0097 - National Cookie Day

Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 

I love to create shaker cards and was excited to see that on the Inspo List.  I used the Nothings Better Than Bundle to create this fun card.  The Medium Clear Envelope makes it so easy to create a Shaker Card.  You can check out my Video on using the Clear Envelopes for Shaker Cards.
