SOS: What's shakin'?

This week at Shopping Our Stash, our hostess Chana is encouraging the rest of us to make shaker cards!  Not my strong suit... but after one failed attempt, this is what I've come up with:

I scored the card to create room for the shaker component since the flags/banner was cut from the surface of the card.

  • The base card was from a set by Studio G (inexpensive package from Michael's) and it already had the flags cut.
  • Heidi Swapp woodgrain stamp had never been used so I inked it with Antique Linen DOx and added to the card base.
  • 3M dimensional adhesive and clear hoarded packaging was used to build the shaker, filling with generic sequins.
  • Birthday sentiment brushed in Tumbled Glass Distress Crayon, scribbled on my mat and sprayed with water
  • Sentiment accented with Jane Davenport paint-over pen 
  • Stickles also added to accent the sentiment and the "spine"
  • Additional sequins added with Ranger Glossy Accents
  • Coral baker's twine from stash
Well, I look forward to seeing your shaker cards at Shopping Our Stash!  I have only made like 4 in my life, and I think I only ever liked the first one... I'll need to see if I even have a picture of it...

Anyway, for REAL inspiration, go visit my teammates at Shopping Our Stash!


  1. You should make more, because this one is fantabulous!

  2. oooooooooooooooh!!! for someone who has not made many shakers and apparently not liked all the ones she made, this is pretty flippin' AWESOME missus!

  3. Everything what Chris and Lauren said, fantastic shaker card.

  4. LOL I was wondering how you made those flags!!
    I am with ya teammie, shakers are NOT my suit
    I had many disasters before I made the one I posted, and the water has since leaked out of it....meh

  5. This is so nicely done, Mimi! I love the design and I am inspired to give this a go! I would say it is definitely a strong suit for you!
