It's a New Challenge at Scrapbook Blessings Club with the Design Team Creating Shaker Cards

Drum roll please, yes, it's true - I'm back on the Scrapbook Blessings Club Design Team where we offer challenges along with tutorials/tips/techniques!!!!!! This challenge is a Shaker Card which is amazingly simple and give the look like you've been creating for hours!!!! Check this video out and see how to make one yourself - 

The wonderful sponsor is : Scrapping for Less


One lucky winner will receive this collection of sequins from Doodlebug:

Good Luck!!!

Now here is my Shaker Card:

  • gold Recollection card stock was cut to a size A2 card
  • background is from my stash and chalked around the edges
  • frame was created using Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge on page 29 oval and shadow cut at 4-inches
  • smokey translucent cardstock was cut as blackout for the frame and glued on back
  • thin strips of tape was added on back in two (2) layers 
  • a few leaf confetti pieces were added for the "shaker" effect
  • tree was cut using Cricut Cindy Loo Cartridge found on page 65 with no leaves cut at 2.25 inches and glued in center of shadow for back of frame
  • sentiment, "Autumn a distinct smell a mixture of dried leaves on the ground, smoke from the chimneys, and sweet ripe apples", had been a previous freebie from  Create with TLC  which has rounded corners and chalked around the edges and mounted on scrap paper 
  • fall jewel leaves were added to the front of my card
