Hello! I am back today with another shaker card. Yes, another shaker! I am having so much fun with these, I just don't want to stop making them. I decided to make one with a big three tiered cake with three separate shaker holes. This one I made for my granddaughter who turned sweet 16 yesterday! I have a couple of behind the scenes look at how I did it, but first let me show you the finished cake card, inside and out! (Oh, one more thing, I asked her what her favorite colors were and she told me red and black ...) Enjoy!
|And the inside. I tucked in her birthday money in the vertical DP strip.|
The paper I used on the front with the hearts came from an Echo Park pad called Yours Truly and it was the only heart piece left in the pad. I realized too late that maybe I should have placed the die cuts closer together. I really wanted to use the heart DP, so I made it work. I think a thinner scallop die between each of the rectangles would have looked better on the front, but I had to go with the wider one with the spacing that I did. All in all, I like the way it came out.
Funny thing, is a friend of mine told me about a great place to order sequins called Cartwrights. I had just got my order in the mail and was hoping to use some of the bright colors I got, but then my granddaughter told me red and black were her colors, and so ... that means ... there are more shaker cards in my future so I can use these ...
See you soon!
