Peacock Shaker

A Shaker Card is a just what it sounds like.  There is a section of the card that is elevated and backed with a window sheet with little elements enclosed. When you shake the card, the elements jiggle around.

The Friday Mashup (follow the link) has a great challenge this week.

Create a Project using "Animals".
Create a "Shaker card" project.

or Mash it up! and create a "Shaker Card with an Animal".

Here is my card:

This was not hard to make if you like fussy cutting.  Stamp the peacock on Whisper White and cut out the tail.  After I cut out the tail, I used an Old Olive Blendabilities to outline the edge.  Then stamp the top of the peacock on the patterned paper and cut out the area above the tail, except for the headdress.  

Layer a piece of the patterned paper on top of the black layer.  On the underside of the white layer, attach a section of window sheet to cover the tail area.  Then build up the backside with foam tape around the tail opening.  Put in all your shaker elements and then attach the black card stock layer.

  3. This is really cool, Diane. I couldn't tell on my phone what you did because it was too small, but now I can see. Very pretty! Thanks for playing with us at the Friday Mashup.

  4. Wow, Diane....who would have "shakered" up that peacock? An amazing designer like you, that's who! Beautiful! Thanks for taking the challenge and mashing it up in such a creative way this week at the Friday Mashup!
