My younger child is fascinated by shaker cards, how they are made, how they look, what they sound like. I've asked him a couple of times if he'd like to make one but he shakes his head. "I'll just see what you come up with...." is usually his response.
I made this shaker card with him in mind, along with the Craftin' Desert Diva's Masculine Linky Party and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Animal Kingdom in mind. (I used masculine colors and images.) I started with a kraft card base that was embossed with Lil' Inker Designs Cover Up Die: Stitched Woodgrain and stamped with a Paper Smooches sentiment.
I then die cut a frame with Lil' Inker Designs Instant Camera Die to frame the cute little critter from Craftin' Desert Diva's Peek-A-Boo Animals Stamp Set. I also stamped a coordinating sentiment from this set onto the bottom part of the frame. The bear was colored with zigs and fussy cut, I also added the top hat. I created the shaker part of the shaker card (filling with blue sequins and silver stars). The bear and hat are in front of the acetate. The shaker was then adhered at an angle onto a blue panel and they were both adhered to the card base.
