It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC62)! This week Dee Jackson is our challenge host! Dee is shaking things up a bit! Or, better yet, she is challenging us to shake things up! We are making shaker cards. Now, you can have a big shake or a little shake. You decide if your shaker is the focal point or the accent! We would love to see what you create! So, go get busy and "shake it" with us this week! Here is a wonderful shaker card tutorial at SCS by Beate Johns to get you going!
I don't even remember when I made the shaker card for the last time...but I remember I used beads for the shakers, so I again used the beads and created this birthday shaker card. I used the beautiful set, Let Them Eat Cakes for the birthday cake and Sweet Violet set for the greeting. The frame for the shaker box was created with Label 11 Netabilities and classic rectangle Nestabilities. Then I dry embossed the frame with CB embossing folder. To finish, I embellished the card with pearls and polka dot satin ribbon.
I used the color combination from the Embellish Magazine color challenge (red, black, white and kraft). The challenge also requires to create a project that includes party-themed projects. So, in addition with the card, I decorated the candle...candles are "Must-Have" items for any parties, don't you think? Or they are also wonderful gifts to give or receive ;)
