Storytime Sequin Shaker...


I LOVE the colour combo for Avery Elle's Colour Challenge, and couldn't resist creating a shaker card for Paulina's Pretty Pink Posh Sequin Shaker Blog Hop.

The shaker part of the card was created by die cutting two windows from white craft foam and gluing them on top of each other and removing the internal window dividers. The teal base piece of the shaker was stamped with Avery Elle Storybook shooting star, and a small sequin star glued in place.  I collected together some traditional shaped sequins and star sequins in clear, pale blue, yellow and silver. I layered my shaker box with the teal base piece and glued foam die cuts, then filled the box with the sequins, added a clear transparency sheet then the green die-cut window. I stamped the Avery Elle Storybook sentiment then added the paper pieced Avery Elle Storybook bunny with added foam dots for dimension.

  19. Love the idea of using a window for your shaker element! When I saw the thumbnail image at the PPP blog, I thought the bunny was a cat. I LOVE cats, and so felt compelled to take a closer look. I was a bit disappointed it was a bunny and not a cat, but bunnies are cute, too!:) Tfs!
