Can you take one more? When I sat down to play around, I made a couple of shaker cards since I had all the supplies out. Since I didn’t finish this one up in time to make the post, I thought I’d share it today. It’s a departure from my home colors – cream and gold – but I love the contrast of the royal blue and silver. From the batch of new holiday dies, this time around I chose Gilded Ornaments and words from the Naughty or Nice Set. In case you didn’t see my post yesterday where I had another shaker card – it helps to see the inside to know how they are put together – I have some step shots —> HERE (scroll down to the bottom of the post) when I did a guest spot for MFT Stamps.
For this particular card I used Twinklets Diamond Dust as the filler for the inside of the ornaments. I think for this card I prefer it over the glitter I had, it feels heavy and moves around inside the card nicely.
Take a look through your stash for items that have rims and will let you use the inside motif as an inlaid motif or look for things have thin border around. These are the things that make for perfect shaker cards :-)
