This is my post on the
Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today
Hello, Diane with you today with a fun and very easy
shaker card and few tips to make it easy for you!
I first colored the Winter Blue Jay image with Copics.
It was then fussy cut out (very easy)
I cut a 5" square card base, then with removable tape,
I placed a Spellbinders Circle die on the card base and
the image so as I could see where I wanted to cut my opening.
I used a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder
for the outside for a bit of texture.
Once cut, I adhered a piece of Heartfelt clear card stock
then cut strips of foam to place around the circle.
(A tip is to peel off the protective coating on both sides,
which makes the tape much easier to maneuver.
Once you have tape all around your cutout,
(Make sure there are no openings in the circle)
add whatever you want for the shaker part.
I added little gold seed beads for this card.
Cut a piece of backing to cover up your opening and adhere.
I used a Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder on my back covering
before I adhered it
A bit of Parisian Mist glitter was added to the leaves.
Using Denim Velvet glitter, I added a bit to the bird feathers.
I finished by adding 1/4" Tear-ific Tape to the outer edges
and then used my 'finger' tool to add the Aztec Gold glitter.
I stamped the sentiment with Versamark, then embossed with
Gold Detail Fine glitter.
Once again, here is the finished shaker card.
