Sassy Shaker

I haven't made a shaker card in a while and decided this would be an opportune time. I started with a Sassy Studio Design "Santa's Helper." The image was colored w/Copics and highlighted w/bling and Stickles. I used Lacey Oval and Simple Oval Nestibilites dies to cut the actual shaker. Next I applied 1/4 inch foam tape around the oval cut image and added glitter tinsel inside of the trough made by the foam tape. I recycled a piece of the packaging from a Cricut deep cut blade and used it to create the window portion of the card. I applied the window to the Lacey Oval and then applied it to the foam tape, lining the Lacey Oval with the foam tape. I printed the sentiment and cut and embossed it with the ribbon Nestabilites die. I inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink in Red Barn and Close to My Heart ink also in Red Barn. Finally I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge to cut the holly leaves. The leaves were inked with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink. I used a paper punch to punch the red foil "berries." I used liquid pearls to highlight the lacey oval to give it some extra "umph."

  6. Hi Martha, Love your colouring on this and the design and layout are fabulous.

    I am confused where you got that our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this time is to use pearls, because actually it's to use something recycled on your project!
