Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 237

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 237 - Shaker Card

Here's my card for the design team.

Shaker cards can either make me or break me. lol This one was fun to me. I loved working with this darling little bunny from Sweet n Sassy. I used Copic markers for my coloring. The shaker plastic circle was from The Paper Cut (years ago! lol) I added some crystal circles, some colored with Copics, for the "shaker" part of the card. To make my flower I glued two pieces of white cardstock together, using an Elmer's type of glue. Then, when it was completely dried I stamped my flower and then cut it out. I then added a clear lacquer to it. When the lacquered has dried the flower becomes pliable for shaping your petals. Works great on butterflies too. I added a gem and a bit of ribbon for the finishing touches. Thanks for looking!

Thanks to Sweet n Sassy for the adorable images!!

Still time to get involved with the current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.
