Happy Boy Shaker Card!
Hi and thank you for stopping by!
This is a short post, where I am sharing a small and simple shaker card made with Cricut Design Space, and other supplies.
I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to make the beautiful silhouette of the little boy at the beach with his pail and shovel. To give this card interest, I made a window using The Fancy Rectangle Build A Card Die Set (CBD001)
A2 Size Card, Happy Stamp form Heidi Swapp
As you can see in the top picture, I made the window using clear acetate, and this allows you to see the inside of the card as well. To make the shaker, I added little stars in yellow and blue to match the beautiful designer papers on the front.
On the inside of the card, I added the beautifully stitched birds, and layered pieces that represent the sand ( in light brown card), and there was enough room for a quick sentiment.
Cardstock: American Crafts
The card base is also made from the same shape, making it different from the traditional shaped cards.
I really enjoyed making this card, and hope that you can
