Sorry that I totally dropped the ball on this one. I thought that this post was up and going. Our new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters is to make a Shaker card. I honestly thought I was going to skip this one since I never made a shaker card. But then I thought Hey it's called a challenge right?? SO I tried it and you know what????? I'm addicted!!! They are so fun!!! I was working on a third one but I wasn't crazy how it turned out plus I ran out of time. Have no fear Shakers are near...in the near future that is. I had to much fun with them. I will say if it is your first time be careful of the frame that you use. My first one (Mother's Day) the Nestie I used produced a really thin frame and it was super hard to get the foam tape underneath. I followed the tutorial that I found on Splitcoast stampers and you can find that by clicking HERE.
This was my very first try at making a shaker card. For the acetate/window part I used one of the many sticker/embellishment backs that I have saved over the years. The stamps are from Shabby Chic Stamps whom by the way is having all of her stamps 50% off this week. I used the sentiment from the Mother's Day set and the flower from the Build a Bouquet set.
Next I did a Tri-Fold card but changed the Nesties I used to make the frame to a rectangle shape and used a birthday theme. The stamps are from Shabby Chic's Build a Cake set and their Greetings set.
