07.05.2017...Celebrate Your Day....a cheater shaker card....
So I have seen these quick and easy Cheater Shaker Cards all over the internet...so I decided perhaps I should give one a try to see what all the hoopla was about.
Boy oh boy was I surprised....they are amazingly quick and easy to make and fun for the recipient to receive too!
I used the Celebrations Duo TIEF found on page 211 to emboss the greeting on a piece of Whisper White card stock.
Then I grabbed the circle image stamp from the coordinating Happy Celebrations stamp set found on page 34. I randomly stamped the circle images in Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise ink. Note that when you stamp on the embossed area that the greeting does not take the ink as it is depressed....cool huh.
When the ink was dry I simply slid the art piece inside a clear envelope....added some shaker mix and sealed the envelope on the back side. I folded the excess to the back and taped it secure. Then I added the greeting and bakers twine.
Finally I adhered the envelope to the front of a Tempting Turquoise card base.
Easy peasy and fun!
