Creative Embellishments has a great selection of shakers that work so well for card making and other projects too!  Today, I have two shaker cards to share with you.  

Here’s a great card for the coming summer and beach time! I used the Lighthouse Shaker Set, Seagrass, and an ATC coin from the Sea set on this card made with Graphic 45’s By the Sea collection.

The lighthouse is painted with acrylic paints and filled with sequins from Buttons Galore.

I painted the Seagrass with Lindy’s mist and glued it to the front of the Lighthouse Shaker.  Then I framed the sailor image with an ATC coin from the Sea ATC


Unlike many of my dimensional cards, this one can be mailed in an envelope!


You can never make too many Christmas cards right?  Here’s a fun one I made for my dear friend, Eileen Hull.  She has a travel trailer that looks a lot like this one.  I painted it with acrylic paints to match hers and decorated it with a wired ribbon thing and then added red stickles to mimic holly berries.

I painted it with acrylic paints and decorated it with a wired ribbon thingy and added red stickles to mimic holly berries.


In the upper left corner I used the Berry Wreath and heat embossed it.  Again, I used red stickles to make holly berries and added a couple of festive poinsettias.  I heat embossed the Merry Christmas words and placed in the center of the wreath to complete the look.

This is a step card so it stands nicely to display.
