I started with the Flower Shaker as I’ve been wanting to give it whirl. I backed the flower similarly to backing a cut file being sure to stain my chipboard first so that that step was done. I went walnut brown to get a very dark brown. Then I assembled my shaker which is simply the circle in the center of the flower. Tip: Mark a spot for alignment on both your chipboard and backing paper for faster matching to assemble.
I used the Rusty shaker mix from Buttons Galore and More and also added a few brown microspheres from 13 Arts.
My sentiment is from the Small Sentiment Words set.
To bring the card up a notch design-wise, I added some old 3-D stickers from my stash. And lastly, added a quick tiny bow!
Even my husband had to stop and take a look and give me his thumbs up!
Next, I worked on this cute little Bee shaker.
I fussy cut some yellow paper from the Travel the World collection to adhere in the area of the wings. Otherwise, I left my Bee with walnut brown stain.
I filled the bottom of the shaker with Safari Sunrise from Buttons Galore and More. It is the bomb … my absolute favorite shaker mix to date.
Next I added my sentiment again from the Small Sentiment Words.
For embellishment, I went with an extra long-tailed bow topped with a velvet leaf and a small flower.
So, now I’ve got 2 cards done and about 10 more to go for my June birthday people.
