Shaking Things Up with the Woodware Challenge

Over the years I've done a few "shaker cards", all with the element of FUN. Birthday fun. Kid fun. Goofy and silly fun. This time I went for PRETTY. Using the "Time Flies" paper pad, I started with a panel adhered to the front of my purple card. I carefully selected a panel from another paper with a purple and blue butterfly that would show through the opening on top. I matted this panel with lavender cardstock, and set it aside.

I die cut a lavender frame using the Stampendous Fitted Frames die set, and stamped a sentiment from the Clear Magic "Tiny Phrases" set from Woodware. I had the negative portion of a piece of vellum which I had die cut one of the Stampendous Butterflies. I sprayed the back with spray adhesive and adhered it to a panel of clear acetate. Now I adhered the lavender frame over the front.

All the way around the back of this panel I adhered foam tape with no gaps. (Mind the gap!) Using some Stampendous Color Fragments, I added sprinkles to the inside of the taped panel. I removed the carrier from the tape and adhered the matted panel from earlier, sealing in the "pretty" sprinkles. The entire shaker panel was then adhered to the card. The result? A very PRETTY shaker card!
