A Fabulous Color Challenge!

Thursday's here already and so is the weekly challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  This week we have three fabulous colors to work with.

I love when we have color challenges and can play around a bit more with designs. I have been wanting to try out a shaker card and this was the perfect opportunity.


I just LOVE all the new products with stars, so a star card was born!  Blackberry Bliss is the card base with stars sponged all over using the star decorative mask.


Next I worked on the shaker.  I die cut a star from a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square of Soft Sky cardstock.  I also cut a piece of Whisper White just a little smaller.  I placed the star over top of the white and stamped my sentiment so it would line up properly.  I also stamped Old Olive stars across the Soft Sky.  For the shaker portion, I filled a small jewlry bag with glimmer paper stars and 1/4" circles of the three colors of cardstock.  I cut the top of the bag down to fit within my cardstock and sealed it with sticky strip.  Then, I simply made a sandwich out of all three elements.  I placed dimensionals around the Whisper White which was already adhered to the card.  Then the shaker and the top cardstock were added.

And that's it for the shaker card!  I love this way of making them, the small jewelry bag is perfect for containing all the little bits and pieces making it easy to put together.

Now it's your turn!  Pull out your stamps and paper and join the challenge with me.  You can find all the details plus more great samples at Create with Connie and Mary.  While you are there, be sure to check out all the details about the upcoming Holiday Card "Create"tions Collection.  We have lots of amazing card sets to help you prepare for the holidays!  Preview week is coming up soon and Early Bird pricing is available now!

This is an awesome card, Nicole! And, I like your directions. I've tried several other methods- even using our smallest cell bag- but, it was never quite shakin' like it should. I'll have to try this. Thanks!
