Hello and welcome back CE friends!! Despite the time of year, we are in currently, I’m sticking with my trend of creating non-traditional crafts. Today we are going to be making some cards using some amazing Creative Embellishments chipboard shakers. I decided to use some things that have been gathering dust in my craft room. I’ve not been making a lot of floral things lately and decided after all the gore, I wanted to make something pretty. 
**Let’s start squeezing our creative juices, shall we?!**
1. First, make your card base or choose a premade card
2. Next, emboss your chipboard panel using embossing powder
3. Distress the edges of your embellishments using some ink
4. Take this time to use the same distress ink along the edges of the card base
5. Cut your 6×6 design paper in half to use on each card
*Hint: I didn’t want to lose the Plaid Panel 2
7. Using a heavier adhesive, adhere your chipboard panel
8. Use some double-sided tape to adhere your paper elements to your card base
8. Alter your chipboard shakers using acrylic paints
9. Add in a die-cut fruit image and some clear beads to each shaker and adhere it
10. Add your flowers, tickets, butterflies, filigree, and final sentiments
*Hint: I added some cardboard packaging to the back of my sentiments to raise them higher*
