Tropical Thankful Shaker

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a shaker card!  I forgot how much I enjoy making these!  This is my third one in the past week!


I used some cute flamingo and tropical flower stickers that I received from my friend Fiki (thank you!).  I thought they worked well with my new Anna Griffin Shaker Card Kit, which I got from the Canadian shopping channel on clearance.  The patterned paper, gold sequins, and bow are all from the kit. There is no stamping on this card!  I used a few dies with snippets/scraps of white and gold metallic cardstock (tag and banner from LaLa Land Crafts, heart from Poppystamps, sentiment from Momenta) and finished off the card with lots of green gems.

I was inspired by a number of challenges: Allsorts Thank You or New Year 2/3; Artsystamper Digitals 4 Give Thanks 3/3; Aud Sentiments Thank You Sentiment 3/5; Crafty Calendar Cute and Girly 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Dare 2B Artzy Thankful 3/3; Die Cut Divas Thanksgiving or Thank You 3/4; DL.ART November Linky UE 1/d; DL.ART Thankful Thursday Thankful Wk 3 2/2; Kat Scrappiness Let's Give Thanks UE; Let's Craft and Create AG Optional Thank You 3/3 Mod Squad Thanks or Thankful Shaker Card 2/3; Pixie's Snippet Playground 366 I save even the smallest scraps of cardstock to use for die-cutting as I did here; The Creative Crafters 22 AG 1/3; The Paper Funday AG Thanksgiving 3/4; The UnstampaBelles 95 Paradise Pretties and Tropical Delights with Twist Into the Wild

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

You always make the prettiest shaker cards, KT! Your fun flamingo creation is beautiful! What is your favorite product to use as shaker elements? Do you use a special type of acetate to prevent glitter from clinging to it? Hugs, de

This is beautiful with the tropical theme. LOVE shakers because they just allow you to get out some frustrations, lol.

Oh, what a beautiful card Kitty! Shaker cards always intrigue me but also intimidate, so I never make them. I have a terrible time keeping the beads or sequins inside the shaker from getting stuck to the foam tape or elements inside the design.
