Shine Bright! Diamond filled shaker card.

Ok, maybe they aren't real diamonds but I can't stop shaking this card and staring at the different colours in the light!

Card base and chalkboard label - American Crafts. Holographic
and Honeycomb silver card - Payper Box. Vellum - Anita's. 
Sentiment - Wplus9. Ink - Versafine. Crystals - Floral supply.

This isn't a new card, but was one of the last ones I made before my crafting drought. I have only just got round to photographing it's different colours in the sunlight, for that reason there are a few pics with this post!

It was quite easy to make. Cut a rectangle of holographic card stock and adhere to your card base.

Take a chalkboard tag and die cut a square in the centre, adhere a square of acetate to the back of the frame, on the inside edge stick foam pads all along the frame making sure there are no gaps.

*Tip - 'dust' the edges of your foam tape where it would come into 
contact with the shaker contents, it will stop them sticking.

Add your shaker contents, remove the backing from the foam pads and stick down a square of silver card stock that slightly overlaps the foam pads, adhere shaker to card.

Die cut banner from vellum and stamp sentiment, emboss with clear embossing powder and adhere to shaker.

My crafting drought may finally be over! I have made 4 cards in the last 2 days including my Father's Day cards which I hope to share tomorrow morning, I just need to make the most of the sunlight for my photographs!


I love to read all your comments and will answer any questions!
