Hi Friends, Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Trend week and Sue has challenged us, and you for that matter, to make a Shaker card. I will admit, I think this is the second time I have ever attempted one of these types of cards, I am not sure why they intimidate me so much, because they are not that hard and so much fun to make! I am also linking my card up to two other challenges. The Pink Elephant; where they are asking us to use Pastel Colors, and my starting off point was a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. Now head on over to Just Us Girls and play along! While your there check out what the Design Team has done along with our Guest Designer Kathy. Remember, if you are chosen as our Chic of the week you could be in the running as a possible GD in the future. Hope to see you there!
Few card details: Flower stamp is from SU. The sentiment is from Verve. I used a combo of Washi tape and ribbon underneath the sentiment. The EF is also SU. Inside the shaker I have a mixture of sequins and punched paper flowers in various colors. Any other questions please just let me know.
I appreciate so much you coming by! Have a great day! Nanc’

Great shaker, Nancy. Adding little flowers inside was a great idea. With all the layers and dimension, you should enter this card at Virginia’s View.

So pretty! I love those soft, fresh colors and your shaker pieces. So cool that you added the little punched flowers with the sequins. Love that you used an image in the shaker as well.

I just love everything about this card. The design is amazing. Love the base of black that accents the tulips and the embossing of the layer to match the ribbon. A very beautiful card that I want to pin.
