Shaker Card

Making a shaker card is a new experience to me. It is the technique challenge over at Stamp TV this week. Gina, comes up with the best ideas! It was really fun!
To create this card I use 2 different stamp sets. I used "Happy Camper" designed by the amazing, Theresa Momber and "Tree Silhouettes", which is a Gina K. Design set. My trees in the foreground were stamped in SU old olive. My mountains, table and sentiment were stamped in Memento, rich cocoa. I tried to keep it simple
so my table was colored in shades of brown pencil , cut out and popped up. All the pieces of my shaker were cut from Nestabilities. My goodies inside the shaker are from my stash. They are tiny plastic shapes that came in themes and I am so happy I found a use for them! They were a QVC purchase from when I scrapbooked more. Inside you will find bears, flowers, a deer, a pine tree, fish and fishing poles. I added a few olive pearl studs for some balance.
As summer is drawing to an end, children returning to school, I hope you are able to find some time to enjoy the outdoors. Till next time.......
