Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by
Today I wanted to showcase a card I made using my favorite style.. shaker card!! Shaker cards are so fun and interactive. They have such a look that I love.
I started out knowing I wanted to use my stamp from So Suzy Stamps - Snowflakes are winter's butterflies. I just love this sentiment. I'm not a lover of snow, so to think of it this way puts my mind in a different thought pattern.
I also knew I wanted a shaker element to my card. I decided to use my Wonky Frame from Avery Elle to make my 'window' . It's a solid cut so I had to also cut the inside with a die from MFT Stamps blueprints.
I added my transparency film to the frame .. I also opted for two layers of foam. The shaker cards I have been making do not shake as much as I'd like.. So adding another layer made it perfect. Everything shakes just as I want. On the base of the shaker I stamped and embossed the sentiment from So Suzy. I then embossed it in pink. I learned a little trick from Jennifer McGuire and that is to glue a few of your shaker elements to the background.. that way it looks like it's floating. I like this look so thank you Jennifer for that tip.
I wanted to use the digital stamp from Craftin Desert Divas so I colored this adorable Angel Bear and glued him to my project. He adds the perfect touch to my shaker.
I made my own enamel dots from perler beads, so I placed one in each corner. And just like that this adorable card took shape.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this has inspired you to be creative and go craft!
