It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! We have a CAS sketch for you this fortnight and the optional twist is ‘shaker’. Our sponsor is Winnie & Walter.
I LOVE Winnie & Walter products, especially their dies, and I recently placed an order for a stack of their dies – so I knew I wanted to use one of them for my take on the challenge.
I chose the ‘hi’ die as it would be big enough to create a nice shaker. I cut it from some cardstock and got to work on my shaker element. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Well, EVERYTHING went wrong. First I forgot the acetate before adding the foam. Then I got glue all over my acetate on the next attempt. Can’t remember what went wrong with attempt no 3 but I do know this card finally came together on the fourth try. Seriously, talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill.
I created a shaker mix using a few packets of sequins that I’d had in my collection for a while plus some seed beads. Really pleased with how my mix worked with the colours of my card.
My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined by the talented Raga from Perky Hobby – do drop by and take a look at her lovely work!
Thanks for stopping by!
i’ve loved that die since I saw it first, I can’t get hold of it in the NL so I’m jealous ;-)very pretty card and lovely colors
that die looks perfect for your shaker window! Glad I’m not the only one who gets in a pickle with shaker cards, I find adhering the foam element really tricky especially with odd shapes like you’ve used. So great respect to you for managing.
Fabulous card n I love that you went with a word die… It’s a clever way to go as the window acts as the sentiment as well adding to the CASness. … Such a wonderful take on the challenge n amazing inspiration. Happy crafting. Hugs- Bharati
What a clever take! Love your sentiment shaker card! Awesome inspiration! I’m so glad to play along with such creative minds! Hugs Raga.
