CYCI #138 Shaker Challenge
Well here it is again! Time for another challenge over at CYCI. This week is a shaker challenge. If you are not familiar with shaker cards, well here is your chance to try one out. This is this first time making one for me, and it was great fun!
I started with a cream colored base card which measured 5 x 7 inches. Then I decided to use this beautiful fall paper from Die Cuts With a View's Autumn Splendor Stack. I first stamped a bare tree image onto the base card using a stamp from my collection and brown ink. Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside die was used with green card stock to give the appearance of grass under the tree. Using different small leave punches, one was an oak type leaf and the other a maple leaf, I punched leaves from several colors of card stock including red, yellow, gold, orange rust and brown. I also added red, yellow and orange sequins for some shine. I attached the frame and added the Fall lettering using the Fun Stampers Journey Snapshot Die set (available at www.funstampersjourney.com/jeannebobish) with brown card stock and mounted it on a rectangle of dark orange and then yellow card stock which picked up the colors in the frame. As the final touch I glued two sequined leaves on either side of the label.
There are lots of videos on You Tube that will show how to make the shaker cards if you haven't made them before. Why not check them out and join our challenge this week. They are super fun to make and we would love to see your creations!
Thanks for stopping by!
