Cardztv Mailbox Smiles Design Team Challenge #4

Welcome to the 4th Challenge for
the Cardztv Mailbox Smiles Team!

I'm excited to bring you one of my 
favorite card designs - an awesome SHAKER card!

I sort of have a thing for things that sparkle
and when shaker cards started to make an appearance
I was all over the process.
I  like to shop on Amazon and one
evening while browsing a "die" popped up as a
suggestion from something I put in my cart.  I loved
the die, but I loved the price even more!  It
was like $3.99!  That is a steal compared
to what I normally pay for dies so I was 
curious and I wanted to see if the die actually
delivered a good strong cut.

Guess what???  It did!
Here's my shaker card:

I used the Cardztv Mixed Messages sentiment
which fit perfectly in the center window of the die cut.

I actually used the die 6 times and glued 5 of them
together for the depth to allow my shaker bits to move
around.  I took the top die and glued a piece of acetate
on for the window portion.  I had fun picking out some
shaker bits to match the color scheme and then I
placed the top die cut.



I love how it turned out and I'm pretty sure
whoever I decide to send to will certainly
"get their happy on"!

Thanks for stopping by!
Make sure and join the challenge and post
your creation on Cardztv blog page.

Happy crafting!
