Shaker Thank You

This uses a Memory Box die that has been in my stash for years. I cut it on a piece of leftover watercolored paper. Made a shaker card. The base of the card is aqua cardstock colored with Pistachio** Distress Oxide ink. It's more of an ombre that the photo shows.  



** Speaking of pistachios, I made some killer dark chocolate/pistachio nuts bark for Christmas this year. Melt Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate wafers*** in the microwave or in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water. Throw in some nuts. Spread on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet. Chill. Break apart. Put in bags (and/or eat).

*** Do not use the Wilton chocolate wafers. I used some of those and it was a mistake.

MOOD WHEN DONE:  I'm doing all right. I like this card, but it's not my fave. I made many others with this die and I'll post them as soon as the sun provides some good photography light.

  2. I'm looking at that cheerful shaker card and thinking only of dark chocolate melted around pistachio nuts. Thanks, Joan!

  3. I was thinking how I love the minty color of your card, so it's interesting to read you colored aqua with pistachio. I especially like the watercolor on the die cut. I'm making a note of your chocolate/pistachio nuts bark. Easy and no doubt yummy!

  4. I think your card is wonderful! Love the pistachio color and your success at a shaker, to boot!
    Now I'm in search of chocolate and nuts...

  5. I love Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate wafers. I love these coconut macaroons dipped in them. They are a chewy cookie that freezes really well.

    Divide this recipe by 5 to make one batch.(one batch takes one can of sweetened condensed milk) A girlfriend made the whole recipe once. LOTS of cookies.
