So for this card I was inspired by the Shaker Challenge happening now at CAS-ual Fridays. I have been wanting to make one and I bought a whole bunch of stuff to make one from the Scrapbook Expo a few months ago. And now-finally some inspiration. :)
It's also my sister's birthday. (ok a little past but who's really keeping count? ok maybe she is!) ;) And I just found out that her favorite color is red. So between the challenge of shaker cards and the favorite color red, this is what happened:
So fun, right?! So I used the silhouette for the flame (from a different candle cut) and made the frame for the shaker part of the candle. Now the foam is from Queen and Company. Just the foam. I didn't buy the die cuts. I figured it out on the silhouette. It took about 4 tries, but I finally got it. I had to get into those 8th measurements (blarg) but I did it. LOL! And the cute sequins on the inside--Also Queen and Company.
At the Expo I had to decide-cute sequins or die cuts....totally the cute sequins! Their pearls and a few of Q&CO diamonds are in there too. The sentiment is an old fabric sticker. The background paper is from TPC studio.
I glued a couple of the sequins on the background to make it seem a little fuller.
I am linking this up to the following challenges:
Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time my friends...Make a wish!
