Today i'm sharing a shaker card, only the second one i've ever made. The first one, well it didn't turn out so well! So the other day i thought i would try a different kind and this one worked a lot better!! I made this card for The Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Confetti Crush. The sequins in my shaker shape is the confetti!
Then i inked up two birdies from The Alley Way Stamps Birds of a Feather stamp set and fussy cut them out by hand. Next i die cut a double ended banner and stamped the sentiment You Make Me Smile from the TAWS set Speak Easy (have you noticed i use this set a lot?!?! It has the perfect sentiments!!)
I used some pretty flower pattern paper and before adding it to my card base i inked the edges lightly. Then i added the birds and banner to my shaker, and then added it to my card base.
I really love how it turned out and will have to try this kind of shaker card again!
Thanks for stopping by!!
