a broken shakercard

That must be the nightmare of any cardmaker ;-)
I made mine to look like the frame is broken and all it's contents are spilling out, such fun :-D

I made the card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: celebrate!  showcasing SSS brand as it's the 6th anniversary of the challenge blog, so congrats Simon Says Stamp. love you.

And for the AAA cards challenge #70 sticthing.

So for the card I made a shaker with the Simon Says Stamp birthday wishes frame die. Cut it from white card and purple craft foam. stacked it all together like you do and filled it with silver and purple sequins and star confetti.
To close the shaker I added a secon layer of acetate.
Swiped Distress ink Wilted violet on the cardbase to color the background of the shaker, so the words would pop. 
I used Spectrum Noir markers to mae the "tear" and also swiped ink  for the "waterfall". adhered the sequins and confetti on the ouside with gluedots.


  1. I can see why making a broken shaker is a tough challenge, your spill is a great way to do it though. Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.
