Shaker Card and a Sneak Peek!

Hi Friends!

The Holiday Catalog is almost here (it goes live on Thursday, September 1st)!  I know, it’s still August and it seems kinda early to be thinking about the holidays, but they will be here before you know it!  Don’t let the cover fool you, there are many more items in the catalog besides Christmas ones.  If you’ve ordered from me in the last year, I’ve sent a catalog off to you!  You should have received it by now but if not, I’m sure it will be there tomorrow.  If you don’t currently have a demonstrator and would like a copy, let me know!

Holiday Catalog

Demonstrators are able to preorder items from the catalog early (isn’t that a perfect reason to become a demo??) and one product that immediately caught my eye were the beautiful Fancy Frost Sequins (Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum and white gold).  They are sooo pretty!

As I sat down to make a birthday card for a sweet little girl turning ONE, I knew that the sequins would be perfect for a shaker card! This is an item that can be used all year round, not just during the holidays.

Birthday Shaker Card

I started out embossing a piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock with the Confetti embossing folder.  As you can see from the photo below, the center area is not embossed.  I was able to find the perfect size oval in the Layering Ovals Framelits (this set includes 15 dies) to cut the center out.

I attached a window sheet to the front and used our new Foam Adhesive Strips to create the barrier to hold the sequins.  After adding the sequins, I put another window sheet over the top.

It’s hard to tell from my photo, but I cut the number one out with our Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Very sparkly in person.  All of the supplies I used to create my card are listed below.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Thanks for stopping by!
