Shake It Up

My niece just turned 8 and I wanted to kreate a fun, whimsical type card. My Seeing Spots set kreates the whimsy and the fun comes when you shake the card. Little micro beads bouncing off the acetate - you can shake it for hours, its addicting.
* First I stamped my image in VersaMark on Whisper White and sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder and heated it up for the raised shiny embossed effect. I used my Blender Pen to color it in and highlighted my sprinkles with my 2 way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds.
* I cut out my rectangle on my Whisper White Card front and then used my Sponge Dauber to dab Rose Red around my frame.
* Decorated my card front with Seeing Spots, in Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum.
* Adhered a piece of window sheet/acetate (or you can use transparency sheets) about 1/8" larger than the frame, to the inside of the card/behind the frame.
* Placed mounting tape all around the frame. Make sure to avoid any gaps or your beads will escape
* Peel off mounting tape layer
* Add your shaker filling (in my case Clear Micro Beads)
* Place your finished image (cut larger than your mounting tape) and adhere to mounting tape.
* Your shaker card is ready to rock n roll :)

Finished my card with 1/4" Rose Red Grosgrain Ribbon and bow. Stamped a few more spots on my envelope flap to kreate the perfect coordinating envelope.

I can hardly wait to make a shaker box. Your instructions made it seem so easy to do! Cute card. It makes me think that maybe I need to buy those stamp sets!

Kim- love the designer paper you created for this card. I made a shaker once at a workshop--forgot how cute (and relatively easy) they are! Kids will love them, and they bring out the kid in all of us! Great job all the way around.
