Acorny Shaker Card.. and More!
I held a workshop recently (Thank you, Debra Gallo!) where one of the featured projects were the shaker cards from the To You & Yours Shaker Cards Project Kit. (pictured below) but I went a step further and created an Acorny Shaker Card to display at the workshop.
I wanted to show the workshop participants at least one other example of a shaker card that they could create themselves. I still had my Acorny Thank You stamp set out so, of course, I couldn’t resist using it for the card!
I wanted a colorful card but decided not to use the typical colors associated with Fall. I selected Old Olive and Rose Red for my card stocks and inks. The vine pattern from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper collection was the perfect match. I cut the opening in the card front with the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies. If you look closely, and I have provided a close up so you can, you will notice the confetti inside the shaker was created using the leaves die which is also from the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies. Not only that, but when we made the To You & Yours Shaker Cards I discovered that Stampin’ Up! provides more confetti and “snow beads” than is really needed for the shaker cards, so I had extra of both to add to this card! (Note: I prefer to have some small beads of some type to help the confetti move around more smoothly inside the shaker.) Such a fun card to make… and to receive!
