Beaded Beast

If you ever really want to shake it up, create a shaker card. They are not as difficult as they seem. What occasion would you like to shake up? 

   Wild About You

   Lemon Lime Twist A-2
   DSP 2-1/2" Circle, 1-7/8" Circle
   Acetate 2-1/2" Circle
   Whisper White 2-1/2" Circle, 4-1/4 x 4 (Inside)

   Archival Basic Black

   Shaker Card

   Layering Circles Framelits
   Foam Adhesive Strips
   Beads (Shaker Elements)
   Fast Fuse
   Fine Tip Glue Pen

I stamped the card front with several animals. I used Archival Basic Black to keep it simple. I also wanted the focus to be on the shaker element and not the whole card front.

Next, I followed the tutorial to create a shaker card from SplitCoastStampers: Shaker Card.

I then attached the shaker circle to the top center of my card using Fast Fuse.

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment on the card front and adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I love that alligator! Very nice shaker card! I have to make another one of these. I'll have to check out my sequin assortment to see what I have. I think I have some snowflakes that will work for winter! You ARE a source of inspiration!

    1. I am blushing. You are so sweet and always seem to say just the right thing at the right time. I needed a complement. That alligator does make me smile. I almost put some googly eyes on him, but decided not to distract from the shaker. Thank you for stopping by here, Fonda. It means the world to me.
