Paper Trey Ink Shaker card

It had been ages ago since I made a shaker card! I mean let's face it, they used to be difficult to make when I first started making cards in the 1990's. But thanks to Paper Trey Ink they are now much easier and fun to make! I love the Make It Market kit "Shaker cards" kit. It has everything in it to make fabulous shaker cards. It has double sided foam sheets, sequins (of various shapes, colors and sizes), acetate sheets, dies, designer paper, and a coordinating stamp set. It's the perfect base kit, and then you can buy coordinating dies to make tons of shaker cards of all shapes and sizes and for ALL occasions. The matching sentiments in the kit and the add on sentiments and dies are so unique too.

The silver glitter "sparkle" word was die cut with Stampin Up's glitter paper. I LOVE that stuff. It comes in red, silver, champagne and gold colors. I think I've seen a rainbow of colors of different glitter paper cardstock at my local scrapbook store too. The problem I had though, was that the silver glitter paper got lost behind the creme card stock, and it didn't stand out very well. So I die cut the word again in dark grey card stock, and popped the silver words in front of the grey, and that worked perfectly.

Betty Veldman, an extremely talented and leading lady in the card and paper crafts industry, designed this wonderful kit for Paper Trey Ink. She has been a designer for Paper Trey Ink for quite some time. I am so fond of Paper trey Ink, and the stamps and dies they make. I have quite a collection (and still growing I might add). I love it that I"ll never have to buy another greeting card, I simply can just make my own.

Materials used: Stamps, dies, cream card stock and sequins: Paper Trey Ink. Black ink: Memento Ink. Vintage photo Distress ink: Tim Holtz/Ranger. All other inks: Stampin Up!.

This second card was made by by friend Crystal. She came over to my home to make her sister this pretty shaker card for her birthday. Love to share my love of card making with my friends. Card making with friends just can't be beat.
