Well shake it up baby now, shake it up baby.....
Welcome to the November Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog challenge. This month our hostess is...ME...and I chose to challenge you all to make a Shaker Card. They are a lot of fun!
I have several baby cards I need to make and so #339 Sleeping Baby Tingla and #286 Baby Tingla were my choices for my shaker card. Both images are available from Diana here at the Magnolia-licious store.
This was really fun! I enjoyed the entire process. There are directions to making a shaker card available on the web site, but I had already purchased some Shaker Pouches from Impression Obsession and so that is what I used. I hope that's okay!
Here is a view of the front of my shaker card...it's very simple. I needed to make a baby card for a friend who just recently had a baby girl. What great timing!
I went hunting at Michael's to see what I could come up with to use as my shaking parts and ran into a road block until I spoted some Swarovski Crystals in a very small size. I thought they would be perfect, but unfortunately they were flat backed and the shiney side didn't stay facing forward. I also added some microbeads to the pouch.
Here is a closer look at Tingla, the beads and how I colored her....
I really kept this card quite simple, mainly because I didn't want to overpower my image. The paper I used is some old, old stuff from my stash. There was no name on the paper at all.
For the inside I wanted a sentiment and also something else to give interest to the circles. The sentiment is from SU and the pacifier charm is from my ever growing stash.
Since I have the original Baby Tingla #286, I thought she would be so cute on the inside of the card. Kind of like the baby is now awake. So I stamped a portion of her on the edge of the notation circle. I like the way the area looks much more finished when you add another image.
So here is a close up of Tingla with her pacifier...
Here is a look at the whole inside of the card...
