Mr & Mrs Shaker Card

If I had enough time and sequins, I would make all my cards shaker cards!

SCS 01 mr and mrs wm

This card uses dies from Papertrey for the bride and groom. The frame was created with good old Labels 1 Nestabilities by Spellbinders. I altered a lot of cardstock for this card. The black cardstock was already black but I wanted some shimmer so I added some Delicata ink. The gold frame and die cut sentiment were painted with gold leafing paint. Along with the sequins, this ends up being a pretty shiny, blingy card!

The patterned papers are by My Mind’s Eye and I think I could use 5 pads! It’s one of my favourite paper pads ever! I love foiled papers. So here’s a tip when you are making shaker cards: if you plan to put any sentiments or embellies over the shaker, block those areas off with foam tape. That way you don’t waste excess sequins filling the shaker especially since you won’t even see them most of the time!

Enjoy, Rebecca
