Hi everybody! Regina here and I am back from vacation, trying to get back in the groove. I went to Hermann, Missouri. There are wineries there and we stayed in a very nice Inn, B&B. It is so beautiful there in the fall. This year, we got a room with a nice size deck and a fire pit. It was awesome!
Well, it seems that shaker cards are all the rage right now so I made one this week. This is only my second time making one of these. Not sure why I don't make them more often but since I have so many sequins, seed beads, etc., I might as well put them to good use and start making them.
I used a stamp from I Brake For Stamps called, Skating Santa. There is also a digital version for Skating Santa. He looked like so much fun to me!
I used a piece of acetate that I cut off of a package that some card making supplies were in for the window of the shaker card. You can use transparencies or you can also buy the windows especially for shaker cards, I want to try those. I put some fun foam behind the backing behind the window secured with glossy accents and scor-tape. I added various sequins, seed beads, etc., inside the window and popped Santa up on pop dots. Finally, I added some red glitter enamel dots to the two corners.
Did I inspire you to make a Shaker Card? Anybody any age would love to receive one of these.
Please be sure and stop by my blog at http://cardsbyregina.blogspot.com for more inspiration.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
