Good morning, Creative Embellishments fans!
Sandi here with you today sharing a couple of cute shaker cards.
I do not profess to be a skilled shaker-maker but since I have some family birthdays coming up soon, I thought I’d start making a few and replenish my card stash. Everyone seems to really enjoy getting a shaker and doing the little shake, shake, shake!
And yes, sometimes there is a little booty shaking to go along with it. 🙂
I still love, love my 13 Arts “Travel the World” collection and have used it for both of these cards, relying on the 6×6 paper pad linked below.
Aren’t these two cards just so bright and cheerful?!

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.

Thanks for coming by the blog today.
