Shake, Shake, Shake Your Shaker Card

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  At our clubs this month, one of our projects was to create an easy shaker card using a cello sheet to create a pocket for the shaker elements.  For our card, we used a SU clear envelope, but you certainly recycle any of the clear acetate pockets that most of our craft supplies are packaged in!  This is what we made using the Merry Snowflakes bundle and lots of sequins and glitter:

We stamped the snowflakes randomly on a piece of Basic White, then cut apart a clear envelope and adhered the edges to the back of the stamped piece with Sticky Strip on three sides to create a pocket.  After filling the pocket up with sequins and glitter, we adhered the open edge with a final strip of Sticky Strip. Just look at all those fun sequins!  We added a sentiment from Christmas to Remember as well as a diecut snowflake from the Stitched Snowflakes dies.

Here's another one I made as a sample; the pocket is a little smaller and I used a piece of Painted Christmas DSP as the background, filling it with gold, silver, maroon, green and white sequins.  The Evening Evergreen card base was embossed with the Wintry embossing folder and sponged with matching ink, and the gold-embossed sentiment from For Unto Us was diecut with a Tasteful Labels die:

Of course, it's difficult to see all the sequins when it's propped up!  But I love this color combination of Evening Evergreen and Merry elegant!  Thanks so much for popping in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Both cards are beautiful, LeAnne! I really need to try this with my stamp girls....I always stay away from complicated cards as my one gal gets flustered when it's complicated. Love the snowflakes on the 1st one and the colors on the 2nd one are very elegant! TFS and have a great day! :)
