Whoooooo Loves U!

C4C97 Shaker Card wm

Hi everyone,

It’s Saturday which means it’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Cindy Haffner has given us another fun construction style challenge this week. This time round we had to create Shaker cards, you can find a tutorial on how to create this style of card on the Splitcoast Stampers site here.

It has been years since I have created a shaker card, this was probably the first type of construction card I made over 25 years ago when I first started stamping. This one is a little different to what I used to create but just as much fun.

This week I used an owl from Cottage Impressions and the postage frame die from Cottage Cutz both are available from Scrapping Cottage. The postage frame is a solid shape I just cut the inside out using a craft knife so I could create my shaker card. I wanted to use pinks and browns for this card so I used holeless beads for the inside of the shaker part of my card.

For the inside of my card I used another owl sentiment from a Stampendous Owl set that came in the mail as I was creating my card, what perfect timing! Of course I had to use the sentiment especially seeing it worked so well with the theme of this card!
