Wishing You... shaker card

Greetings Dies R Us fans, followers and crafty visitors.

I had my almost-7-year-old daughter in my studio with me wasting time as I was refusing her to watch anymore TV than she already had! It wasn't long until she caught sight of my new Dream Catcher die & wanted to make something with it. I'd always wanted to do a shaker cards & knew that she'd love to have a play with the sequins etc. So with her help in hand and her in charge with selecting papers/sequins etc we set about making this card together!

Dies used include:

After selecting the colours we cut the shaker frame from cardstock using the nest of Docrafts Xcut  Rectangle Parenthesis #2, including a separate acetate sheet used as the front of the shaker window. We layered this over a glitter cardstock because you can't have too much sparkle!

My daughter had a lovely time carefully adding all of the colour coordinated sequins to the shaker frame before we enclosed it. We then simply added the Taylored Expressions Dream Catcher to the centre of the shaker frame and added a splash of Liquid Pearls & a sentiment.

The inside of the card utilised the center offcut from the shaker frame too!

We are up to our 4th challenge too which is currently Weddings, which will be open until June 28. So pop over to join in on the fun! And don't forget to check out the store for these dies & hundreds more from your favorite names.
