Shake It Up: Designer Creative Challenge

Hey there, welcome to my little corner of the world! I'm here today to share a card I made for Craftin Desert Divas Shake It Up Designer Creative Challenge.

I have to tell you, this challenge was kismet! I bought the Bright Horizons Stencil because the moment I saw it a card idea popped into my head. Ever have that happen? My hubby hates it, because it usually means I'm buying more crafting supplies. Anyways, I saw this stencil and I had an idea kicking around in my head, sketched it out, but didn't actually get around to making it. This poor stencil sat around just waiting to be used. Then this designer creative challenge came up and I knew that it would only take a small change to make my card into a shaker.

I started by cutting my card base from some Strathmore Bristol Smooth. I next cut out a panel that was about 1/8" of an inch smaller than the largest die in the Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies and set it aside. Next I pulled out some patterned paper from my stash and traced the sun portion of the stencil from some bright yellow patterned paper that has cute little polka dots and cut out all the pieces. I did the same thing with the clouds, only I used a blue patterned paper that featured white stripes. The patterned paper that I picked had a sheet with these cute little hearts, so I cut a couple out just in case.

I then aligned my stencil on the smaller piece of Bristol Smooth and used it as a guide to glue down the sun and clouds. I then cut out the largest scalloped frame from the Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies and glued a piece of acetate to the back of it. I doubled up some 3M foam on the back of the scalloped rectangle die and set it aside. Since the shaker portion is so big I wanted to make sure that even when not being shake you could see the some of the sequins. I accomplished this by just gluing some Mermaid Lagoon Sequins to various parts of my paper pieced sun and clouds. I then glued one of those hearts I had cut out and put a fair amount of sequins in the middle of my sheet so I could attach the front part of the shaker.I added everything to my card base, added my sentiment and VoilĂ !
