rainbow star shaker card

Don't you love when you are just playing with crafty supplies on your desk and it actually turns into something you love? That's what happened with this card! Sometimes it pays not to put things away...haha!

So here's how it started...I had a scrap piece of paper that had been dry embossed with the Essentials by Ellen Tiny Stars Background hot foiling plate. I decided to color it with a little ink blending and some of my favorite Distress Oxide inks.

I decided to stick with the star motif and pulled out the Essentials by Ellen Essential Star dies to create a shaker window panel. Precision is not one of my skills as a cardmaker so I drew light pencil lines to help me position the die.

After I was done die cutting the shaker window panel, I adhered acetate to the back.

Then I added foam tape to create a shaker "container" and filled it with my favorite tiny star sequins.

The sentiment is stamped & embossed with white powder on black cardstock and then die cut into a circle.

I love how bright & happy this card turned out! And I love that this design is one I can make again with a different sentiment for a different occasion.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
