happy little shaker

So if you've been spending any time with me lately (in real-life or on social media, LOL) I have a bit of an obsession with the Concord & 9th Happy Card die set. I just think it's such a cool idea, being able to create a frame with changeable inserts. And I think it's the perfect vehicle for a shaker card...

To create this card, start by die cutting the Happy Card frame with the "happy" word insert. I cut one frame from gold foil paper to use for my card front and one from scrap cardstock to use as a mask.

On a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 panel of smooth cardstock, stamp flowers. Masking the top with the scrap cardstock piece (leftover from the cardstock frame you previously cut) to stamp black flowers. And masking the bottom to stamp flowers is Distress Ink.

Color "top flowers", the ones stamped in Distress Ink. I used Clean Color markers.
Adhere acetate to frame cut from gold foil, place sequins on acetate and adhere to flower panel. I made this card a "faux" shaker, with little movement. I wanted the colored flowers on top to look like they were raining down sequins.

Thanks for stopping by!
