making custom message shaker card

I don't think I can say enough how much I love shaker cards, especially ones made with word or alphabet dies!
One reason I love using alphabet dies so much is that you can create custom messages. When I pulled some of my favorite dies out to play, I was going to make a happy birthday card (just to have on hand) but then I thought about one of my dearest friends who is feeling blue.

I decided to create a card with a little reminder to her about how amazing and special she is so I die cut "own your magic". Light pencil lines helped me line up the dies for cutting.

After creating the shaker window by adhering acetate behind the die cut panel, I also adhered the rainbow die cuts that I watercolored with Distress Inks.

Before adhering the whole shaker shebang onto my card front, I added a little glimmer paste and sequins when it was dry.

I love how it turned out and I hope it makes my friend smile.

Thanks for stopping by!
