Stag shaker card

I used the colours from the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge and the recipe from the Less is More Challenge: acetate or vellum.

I started by die cutting the stag from 140lbs cardstock and then I stamped the sentiment from Cuddly Buddly with Versafine and heat set it.
I then cut acetate and a piece of craftfoam and patterned paper to fit the shaker card panel. The patterned paper has some green and red  Christmas decoration on it  so I thought it would fit.

For the red and green I used star sequins/confetti and seedbeads to fill the shaker card.
for the metallic copper I splatter Distress spray stain antique bronze over the front, for some nice shimmer.

  1. This is super, Maaike! What a fab die. It looks great as a shaker! The bronze splatters really complement the colour of the sequins and seed beads. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
