Shakin' It Up!

The Extra, Extra! Printed Transparency inspires me to make something with it every time I see it,
so why not create a shaker card today?
Can you see the micro beads behind the transparency? They work perfectly with this
transparency for shaker cards of course.
The 8.5x11 Orient Express Cream Club Stamp Print serves as a fun card base background, I like how the printed color shows through the printed transparency.

I started the shaker card in the usual way I think, cutting a frame for attaching the transparency onto, and then attaching the foam tape to give the micro beads room to roll around inside.

Then added the micro beads still currently available in GHM.
Then put the card body onto the foam tape frame, trapping the micro beads inside.
Now for the finishing touches.
I stamped the Bon Appetit Greeting Unmounted Stamp onto an Orient Express paper
scrap and cut it apart for a different look.
The Comfort Zone Key (handy little 4-pack) also made a sweet addition.
The Bon Appetit Greeting UM was also used on the inside of the card.
I'm looking forward to giving this fun card away to help celebrate a birthday.
What a fun combo of Club Scrap crafting products! It's been fun, "shakin' it up" today!

Thanks visiting Club Scrap Creates, have an inspiring day!

  6. Be sure to make more than one of these, it's fun keeping one on your desk, for yourself, for shaking at will. I'm finding that I don't want to give away the one I made the other day heheeee.

  7. What a wonderful idea, this card and technique, Kay.
