There is a large group of ladies that meet on a regular basis to chat, craft, hang out and trade handmade cards. We usually meet for a couple of hours and snack on delicious food and coffee while someone in the group teaches the others the latest techniques in card making. The minute you walk in the room you're struck with the energy and passion for card making and paper crafting. It's something that only a crafter, like myself, can understand and appreciate. The conversations are always dynamic as you hear things like glitter, rubber stamps, embossing, distressing or die cuts. Today's conversation was on "shaker cards". Shaker cards are greeting cards that when you shake them up and down, a part of the card will rattle with beads or confetti or even candy! These are really fun cards, specially for kids and teenagers and the occasional fun person that appreciates something different. I brought home all my trades but I'm only going to share a few with you selected at random.
The first one is mine, I cut out a lava lamp image from the internet and added small red beads inside a plastic pouch. I used Microsoft Word to add the sentiment
I hope these cards inspire you to make your own shaker cards. Thanks for zooming by, come back again for more cards, more crafts and more fun!
