Shake, Shake, Shake!

It's Saturday!  Let me show you what I have been up to.  I had never made a shaker card.  So I set out to create one.  My friend Tina's birthday is today and I usually try different types of cards out on her.  So this is also a tutorial on how I created this card.  Lyrics first...

~Scrap Factory Doll Builder program
~Scrap Factory Sisters Expansion pack
     Body-open toes
     Outfit-Dress #2
~3M Overhead projector Sheets
~DCWV Texture Stack & White Ginger Stack
~Studio Calico Here & There Savannah Sheet
~Stamps for inside of circle
     Inkadinkadoo Floral Butterfly #98874
     Inkadinkadoo Flowers, Vines & Insects #98973
~Sure Cuts A Lot V4
~Silver Bullet Professional 24" Cutter
~And a gob of beads, sequins and shiny stuff

First off was to create my circles the back is Georgia Pacific card stock and the front I cut out of 3M overhead projector sheet.  I will show you the next steps using pics.

The circles

I stamped the images using Stazon so that the
Spectrum Noir Alcohol markers wouldn't smear the ink.

As you can see the Stazon smeared.
I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color the flowers.  Then
stamped the saying and embossed

This is 1" wide double sided sticky pop up tape.  I used a
sewing trick to go around the circle smoothly.  Clip the tape
and it will lay down flat around the circle.

Here is how it looked before the overhead projector
sheet was put on.  I filled the circle with sequins and beads.
Then took off the paper and applied the clear sheet enclosing
the sparkles.

Trimmed around the circle and added a blue border.

Here is the little gal created in Scrap Factory.

I think she looks great with the shaker element.

For my first shaker card, it turned out pretty darned good.  Will I make more, maybe.  But not for a while.  Next week I have a box that I transformed to hold a card.  It's a commissioned piece and I stretched my creative muscles.

Bright blessings for the upcoming week!  Jana
