Shaker Card

Hello Everybody!

I hope April was a crafty month for ya'll.  It seemed very crafty for me!  I am hoping for lots of crafty time in May, also.  :)

Hopefully, ya'll will stop by House of Cards and see our new challenge which is to use acetate!  I have finally-FINALLY made a shaker card.  And I am sooo excited!

The shape is from Silhouette.  As a matter of fact they have the background, the frames, and the acetate part part included in one design.  Click here to see it.  And the silhouette cuts acetate!  You can click here to see how to do that.

So here is my card:

Here is a reflection off of the acetate.  The sequins can move around (they shake!).  But I left one of the frames off and I should have put it in.  I think they will move much better on the next one I make.  (There will be more!) :)

Here is a side view.  Under the glitter layer the frames are glued on top of each other.  So clever!

Be sure to check out my teammates for more inspiration!
