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!
