Make It Monday - Shaker Card


I have to say that Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge this week looked easy and fun.  This week's technique is making a Shaker Card.  I've never made one before so I thought I'd go for it.  I already had fun foam but no confetti so a trip to Michaels was in order.  I know I could make my own but I wanted to go with a St. Patrick's theme and I wanted sparkly clovers.  I found some other kinds of glitter there that I had to have too.  Wink, wink.

Here is what I came up with:


Okay, so it wasn't as easy as I thought, I was clearly adhesive-challenged.  Maybe I need to invest in a Xyron sticker machine cause it looked really easy when Heather used it in her video.  And how do you not have your glitter stick to the inside edges?  Yes, I am adhesive-challenged.  I need to practice this more.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
