Sequin Shaker Birthday Card

Okay, so I have been seeing these sequin shake cards all over social media.  I have been intrigued from the start, so when Pretty Pink Posh showcased a Sequin Shaker Blog Hop... I could not resist.

Never having attempted to make a sequin shaker card, I watched the tutorial from Pretty Pink Posh.  This is not the first time I have taught myself by just merely watching someone else execute the idea.  It was such a super fun & informative video, so I think just about anyone can watch the tutorial & be able to create their own sequin shaker card.

Here's mine, a birthday card for a friend's daughter:
This bee stamp is from Stampendous! Of course, my sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh & also Lawn Fawn. The papers & ribbon were all scraps from previous cr8've projects (love it when I can use the scraps).  I used the display case from my Spellbinders dies that I have purchased over the years to double as the acetate for my shaker box (love it even more when I can recycle or re-purpose an item).

This card was so much fun to make... even if I didn't have the best foam tape to work with, I still managed to cr8 my very first sequin shaker card.  (I can see a few more of these pretty cards in my immediate future!)

Thanks for stopping by to view my latest cr8've project. 


Happy Cr8'ing!
