A Gift For You

Make It Crafty has a challenge running for  a CAS Skaker card. My first thought was .... a shaker card simple/plain? Making a shaker card requires quite a bit of work. BUT, after looking at the fabulous samples of the DT I realised OK, not too difficult. My problem of course is that I really battle to make CAS cards! It always feels to me as if something is missing.

This is MY version of the CAS Shaker card - I love making shaker cards btw. Perhaps not as CAS as it could be, but the best I could do without adding too much. I used the MIC image "Little girl decorating" image and coloured her in with Copics and SN pens. The tree was cut from green cardstock and 3 separate shaker areas were made. Bit tricky getting the tiny shaker bits into the small area, and I probably have quite a few on the floor now, but eventually I managed. Only one BP used - I tried using the white background but the card looked really empty to me. A little glitter glue and sequins added as baubles, a peel-off sentiment, vase and ribbon, and the card is finished.

New items used - vase
Old items used - BP, green cardstock, white gel pen, chalk, alcohol pens, glitter glue, sequins, peel offs.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
