Shaker Cards

Hello.  Happy Thursday.  Tomorrow is Friday and I am so looking forward to the weekend.  I am off all weekend and my husband will still be out of town so I will have the house to myself.  That means lots of playtime.

I have been stamping/paper crafting for over 20 years.   Shaker cards have been around for most of that time.  But they are so much easier now.  I remember going crazy and buying all kinds of  sequins to put on the inside.  I still have a lot of them.  I want to make more shaker cards. Lori Whitlock's shakers make them so easy.  You just cut all of the layers and glue them together.  Add the sequins and the top layer and you are good to go.

After putting the shaker together, I had to make a card.  I wanted to use blue so I could send it to some of the men on my birthday list.  I decided my birthday texture folder would make a great background.  I just love using texture folders as backgrounds.

I am going to use the card in the following challenges:
   Little Tangles - Sequins
   Suzy Bee's - Die and/or Punches
   Craftin Desert Divas - Shaker Card
   Sugar Pea Designs - Sketch #24
   City Crafters - Case #3 (shaker)
   Crafty Creations - Seeing Spots
   Seize the Birthday - Create a Background

Off to clean off my table.  Chat with you later.
