A Hug in the Shaker…

PrintToday on the My Favorite Things Blog is the Final Day of SHAKER CARDS!! Confetti everywhere this week!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s idea was to show the inside of the card…a Peek-a-boo, if you will. I ended up making the inside basically “the card”. It’s funny how things happen. ๐Ÿ˜‰hawkins_jill_can't wait shake_wm hawkins_jill_can't wait shake_00_wmThe scalloped circle is actually from the Die-namics LLD Cupcake Stand set and works fabulously as a centerpiece, don’t you think? ๐Ÿ™‚ The tricky part on this one was hiding the foam. I didn’t completely excel on that task, but didn’t want to toss it either. Once again, a “handmade” card right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

This card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics LLD Cupcake Stand, Die-namics Stitched Circle STAX, Photo Booth, In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangle STAX (dies), BG Diagonal Lines Background, CS True Friends (stamps), Black Licorice (hybrid ink), Steel Grey (dye ink), Bubble Gum, Steel Grey, Ripe Raspberry (card stock). ๐Ÿ™‚

MFT_WSC_224Also this week, the MFT Stamps Blog is all about Shakers!!PrintHere’s one for today!hawkins_jill_sending happy_wmI recommend static treating all parts of your shaker card before you put the goodies inside. I did that here, but as you can see, some still sticks wacky. But hey, that’s the nature of the card. They are meant to shake, so a still shot is never quite as enjoyable as a good SHAKE!! Ha!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The MFT Blueprints #24 has sequin die cuts, so that is what I used here. The possibilities are endless to make shaker cards. ๐Ÿ™‚
