Using a Transparency for a Shaker

     This is a card created for a baby shower we had at work, last week.  Shaker cards can be such fun!  I decided to give it a whirl, since I had everything I needed right at hand.

     I have a big box of Transparency sheets from Staples, and I just cut one up when I do this kind of card.  You must create some type of frame and I use foam tape to give it some depth. The window was cut with MFT stitched oval dies.  Adding a fun background always looks awesome.  You drop in your shaker bits and there you have it.  Just decorate as needed.  In this case I used the new SU! set called Moon Baby.  Coloring is with Copic markers and I added a bit of Stickles for sparkle.My designer papers are from a pad of paper from Pebbles, called Special Delivery.

     This card will be entered at Little Red Wagon Challenge 386, called It's Clear to Me!.  Another brisk day, but I might get out and about a bit today.  Hope you are up to something fun!
