shake your booties !!

I didn't have a plan for this card so I am happy with how it turned out. I haven't done a shaker card in ages and now I know why... they are a bit messy and so hard to photograph!!
for this card I took a kraft card blank, (this is a 5x7 landscape.) I cut a mat out of a piece of kraft card and layered it with a piece of paper, from the lili of the valley country lady 8x8 paper pad. I added a piece of ribbon and tied it in a bow, over to one side, and glued the mat onto the card. I used a paper-piercing template and mat from stampin' up! to add some detail to the edges and a pattern across the bottom. next, I stamped a sentiment from the stampin' up! bring on the cake stamp set, using an archival coffee ink pad onto some co-ordinating paper. I then cut this out using a sizzix circle die. I took a third piece of paper from the pad and cut out a circle, using the size down in my circle set. I then glued acetate to the back of the paper before cutting out a bigger scallop circle (with the circle in the middle) to create a frame. to make the shaker I added foam tape all the way around the edge on the back of the acetate, being extra careful not to leave any gaps.  I put the pattern side down and added a bit of glitter a few sequins and a good amount of pinflair ice diamond to the centre. I stuck the stamped circle onto this, remembering to keep the patterned side down. I then turned it over and glued the shaker element onto my card. I finally stamped a magnolia image (tilda with rubber boots) on to craftwork cards digi cardstock, using memento ink and coloured her with promarkers. I cut her out to add to the side of my shaker, using tape on the overlap and foam on the rest to keep her level with the shaker.
