Proud-of-You Shaker Card

It's a rare sight here on my blog.


This is the second shaker card I ever made! If you missed the first, check it out. It's the second card in the post. They're not difficult to make, but they take a bit of extra time, and often, I'm in too much of a hurry to do it.

The Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle dies were used here as the frames. After popping the smaller one up on foam dimensional tape, I didn't like the look of the card from the side. The foam tape looked really messy, and so I wound hemp cord around the frame twice, tying it off in a bow to one side.  


On a smaller white cardstock circle in the back of the frame, I stamped Bella's Bloom from Stampin' Up!  The 'window' is a scrap piece of acetate with black polka dots on it (found in a $1.00 Scrap Bag). The sequins are nothing fancy, culled from my kids' art stash from when they were younger.

I'm glad you came by today. Thanks for your visit!
