Faux Shaker Card for a Shaker Card Challenge – CYCI #138


CYCI #138 Hi everyone and welcome to a new CYCI challenge 🙂
This week it’s all about shaker cards, or when you just don’t want to deal with all the shakers, a faux shaker card.

For this shaker card challenge, I decided to go with the fake version. I started by cutting the hill pieces with the new Lawn Fawn dies. For the hill and the tree parts I used the also new Lawn Fawn fall paper. I adhered everything together and ran it through my big shot using a scalloped frame die.

I stamped the fox, the leaves and the squirrel, colored them with Copics and ran them through my Scan’n’Cut. For the frame I decided to go with the frame die from Lawn Fawn. I added foam tape to the back and adhered it onto the background. Now I adhered the leaves and the little critters to the card. Finally, I placed the sequins (from Kat Scrappiness) all over the card. It only needed some more glitter, so I added Spectrum Sparkle to some leaves.

Tadaa, a shaker card without the mess 😛
