Sparkle and Shine Vellum Shaker Card

I’ve seen so many cards based on this month’s Simon Says Stamp card kit, it was hard to come up with something original. I think I’ve done a pretty good job.

I used the sequins from the kit along with a few other gold and white ones from my stash and I added some chunky gold glitter too. I loved the little heart border so I used it on my vellum shaker. The thread is gold though it’s hard to tell right now. I actually used two layers of vellum then adhered the shaker pocket to the card base. Not sure if that was the best idea because it buckled somewhat even though I held it closed with paperclips. I saw Jennifer McGuire do a similar card (after I made mine) and she sewed one layer of vellum right to the card base. Maybe next time!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
