Hi everyone! I'm stoked to share with you another 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project! I love shaker cards and don't seem to create enough of them. I recently purchased some 'hearts and stars' glitter in several different colors and have been anxious to use some of it! ;)

I zeroed in on green (my favorite color) for this project. The striped background is stamped in two colors, then I added a couple layered panels using some coordinating 6x6 papers. I used the scrumptious Lemon-Lime crinkle ribbon from the LG Bundle which is absolutely gorgeous!

I created the frame for the shaker element with a couple SB dies, then layered the clear cardstock, the white fun foam and the white cardstock panel behind the frame. I stamped the sentiment in green ink first and stamped it a second time in Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I put a small pinch of several different colors of tiny hearts and stars confetti in the shaker mechanism before closing it all up. Love it!

Now look at this bow! I can't boast enough about this gorgeous hand-dyed ribbon! This color is just amazing!

I normally keep the insides of my cards fairly simple, and I used a new border stamp for this one. Something a little different. :)
