So, yeah... I've been making a few shaker cards lately... but I did just go crazy buying sequins at Paper Sweeties and Pretty Pink Posh.... so... I have to use them!! Paper Sweeties has some limited edition snowflake sequins that are oh so pretty...
Here I used that piece I cut out of my embossed background before I used it yesterday. I stamped my cute little penguins from CTMH's Season's Greetings stamp set (as well as the sentiment), colored with the Shin Han markers and a little bit of Wink of Stella and cut them out. The pink paper is old Fundamentals. The frame was cut from glitter paper in design space. I placed a rectangle on the screen.. made it the size I wanted... duplicated it, sized it a bit smaller (left the frame wide enough to fit some pop up tape). I placed the rectangles one on top of another, selected both of them and chose to Align and Center. Then while both were still selected, I Attached them so they would cut at the same time. I still have the inside piece of glitter paper to use on another card... perhaps a shaker... perhaps this weekend :). If I was really thinking ahead I could have placed a third rectangle on top and made a second frame for later use... Note to Self.
From an angle you can see the penguins a little more clearly... the caveat to the shaker is they are hard to photograph.. but oh so cool and pretty to look at and play with. Oh... another tip I learned long ago from my crafty friend Melanie who you can find here, I always adhere a few sequins towards the top of my shaker base so even when it's just standing still they appear to be floating... (and... I usually adhere a few outside the box... cause the almighty sequin just can't be contained!)
Thanks for stopping by again! Don't forget to come back Monday!
