Its my turn to share my cards for the 6 on the 6th series over at S J Crafts. Sarah sent me part of the Simple Stories December Documented collection and there were some transparencies in there. This gave me the idea to make some shaker cards. I've never made one before and I made some huge mistakes but it was great fun using lots of glitter!
For some of the cards like this one, I used half of the unprinted transparency over the top of one of the cut-apart sheet cards.
In others, like this one, I layered a printed transparency over the top of a printed card.
I used some snowflake brads in silver and gold and in this one I used some smaller snowflake brads inside the aperture for added sparkle and interest.
I layered up the wonderful papers with some plain cardstock in some of the cards. I also added some very old trim from my stash. It felt wonderful to use sparkly bits as I don't normally do anything with sparkles or glitter!
It doesn't have to be a big shaker element to have an impact. Here I used 2 different sized punches of the same shape to create a wreath effect over a circle sticker and layered up some more of the stickers on top of the printed card.
I think this one is my favourite with that gorgeous bow on the front. I backed the aperture with a piece of white cardstock embossed with a swiss dot folder so that the statement remains clear.
What are you waiting for? Go get that glitter!
Bye for now
