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. 


  1. I love your thank you shaker...I love pistachios too...sounds delish.

  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.
