OH BOY!!  The CAN YOU CASE IT? Challenge this week was a REAL challenge.  It is a Shaker Card.  Yikes!!!



I used Layered Leaves Die for my Shaker Card.  I LOVE this die!!!  I maaaayyyy have gotten a little carried away with the amount of sequins I used for the card.  It was hard to know just how much was enough. 🙂

Shaker Card

Shaker Card

I began this card by using Cocoa Powder CS. I almost completely covered it up by adding the Citrus Cooler to the inside.  I also used Citrus Cool CS to cut the leaves.  I cut two sets of the leaves.  Part went on the front of the card for the shaker part,  and some I cut apart and attached to the inside of card for some added interest.

This is a close-up view of the card front. The button is used to keep the card front closed.  You can’t see it in the picture but I painted the outside edge of the button with Dark Roast Silk.



This is the foam I used to make the shaker card.  I cut it in thin strips and attached to the acetate that was glued to the backside of  the leaves die.


…….and this is what it looks like when opened


Fun Stampers Products I used for this card:                                 Annual Celebration, Great Stamp set because it has all of the holidays covered.  The Layered Leaves Die (MY FAVORITE), Citrus Cooler C.S, Cocoa Powder CS, and Ink, Gold And Dark Roast Silks, Journey Twine, Wooden Accents Buttons, Sparkle Celebrations…Lemongrass and Clear. I used Journey Glaze as an adhesive to attach the button.
