My Very First Shaker Card!!

Happy Friday Eve,

Today we are introducing the last 4 Design Team members at Time Out Challenges so please do pop over to our blog and say hello. Next week our first challenge will go live....what will it be??? I would love to tell you but then you know what I would have to do to you!!

I have been so excited to share with you my very first shaker card. I have been wanting to try making one of these for a while and last week I saw this card by Betty at the Fusion Card Challenge and it inspired me to turn thoughts into action!! I used the sketch at Fusion to try this out. I used the colour scheme at Crazy For Challenges-radiant orchid.


I used glitter card stock to go with the sparkly theme. I have rounded a few edges just because I didn't like square look. I liked the effect this made however still wasn't happy with the totally square centre. Then I saw this feather stamp on my craft table that I had fussy cut out a while ago and thought it might cut off the squareness (is that a word?) and viola, it seemed to work.
The sentiment and feather stamps are from STAMPlorations.

I am so glad I tried this as I love how it turned out and it is sitting on my mantle piece and every time I pass it I have to give it a shake. I giggle and feel all proud I actually made it myself!! I know...how sad is that!!

Have a fun day and remember to visit Time Out to meet the rest of the team and then........take TIME OUT to craft!
