Whole lotta Shaking going on!



Today's card was really fun.  I wanted to play along with Danielle Flanders Make it Monday Challenge from Papertrey Ink.  Here is her fun challenge:

"Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and confetti made from PTI dies included on your project."



My confetti was created using the sweet complimentary dies for the Hippity Hoppity Stamp set.  I also added a few sequins and then encased the whole thing in a shaker box.

My A2 card base is SU Pink Pirouette.  I cut a 2.75" circle from the front.  Then I trimmed a piece of white paper to 4 1/8 x 4 1/4 and cut a circle about 3.5" and embossed it with a woodgrain SU embossing folder.

I attached a piece of clear acetate over the front of the hole on the card base and I attached another piece of clear acetate to the back of the white card stock covering that hole.


Then I carefully applied double stick foam tape to the back of the white card stock/acetate piece being careful not to let the foam tape show through the window.  You need only use enough foam tape to be sure your confetti doesn't get out.  : ) but I pretty much covered the whole back of the white card stock/acetate piece with foam tape.

Then I laid the confetti on top of the card front keeping it on the acetate only.  Next I sandwiched the confetti in by attaching the white card stock/acetate piece to the front. Easy Peasy!!

Inside my card I attached a 4 x 3.5" piece of white card stock.  I stamped the Bunny  and sentiment from the Hippity Hoppity stamp set.  Then just for fun I applied a few more sequins on the inside of the card so that when the card was standing upright you would still be able to see some sparkle through the window. : )

As soon as I saw the Papertrey Ink challenge I immediately new I wanted to create a shaker card!. When I blurfed on over to see what the Mojo Monday challenge sketch for the week was I did the happy dance!! 


Is this a perfect sketch for my shaker card or what?! I LOVE the challenges at MojoMonday!! If you don't already participate in those challenges I recommend you start.  They are truly great at motivating your mojo!!

The drawing for my FREE card is less than a week away! Please see THIS POST to learn how you could be a winner.

Have a Hippity Hoppity day! because some bunny loves YOU!
