hello (shaker card)

** 9/13/15 Winner at 613 Avenue Create! **

Hi everyone! I'm so stoked to share with you my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #61 - Do A Double Take! Come play with us! It's an easy one - we want to see at least two patterned papers on your project! We are being sponsored this time by Imagine That! digis by Kris, A Day for Daises and The Stamping Boutique!

I used the super adorable Peacock Magic image from A Day For Daisies for my shaker card. It's been a little while since I created a shaker card and I thought it was about time. I got a fuse tool and a bunch of various sized pouches, and I just HAD to play! The pretty papers are from Gina K Designs.

Isn't this image just the sweetest?! I colored her with Spectrum Noir and used a Versamarker pen to emboss her dress with tinsel. I put a pinch of white and a pinch of teal hearts and stars glitter in the shaker along with some white seed beads and just a few dark teal pearlescent seed beads. I cut the frame around the shaker from teal foiled cardstock.

Here's an angled shot showing her embossed dress. 

I colored the Mama Elephant hello script die cut with a Spectrum Noir marker, used some clear Wink of Stella and then finally some Glossy Accents. It turned out so pretty!

And here's the inside, a simple Stampin' Up! sentiment on a layered panel.
