Ballerina Shaker Card
by Jeanne Jachna
I hope you're having a beautiful day! I sure hope you love pink because if you do you're going to love my card today! Every time I see a ballerina I have to think of my daughter taking dance classes when she was about 5. Things didn't work out so well for my little girl who was more concerned with the stickers they put on the floor to let the girls know where to stand than learning Plie and Jete, but boy did she ever look cute all in pink, head to toe, tutu and satin slippers!
I thought the FLORAL DANCE COLLAGE would make a fun shaker! To spice things up a bit I added some layers of pink ombre under the shaker.
I cut panels in three shades of pink with the PRETTY STITCHES border set. The different shaped openings and fancy stitched detail adds a touch of elegance to the design.
The two darker shades of pink are adhered directly to the card base while only the top (lightest layer) is adhered with adhesive foam tape. This creates a pocket to fill with seed beads and sequins! You can see the dimension here.
A die cut makes the perfect simple sentiment. This FANCY CELEBRATE die fits inside the FLORAL DANCER COLLAGE opening perfectly!
I love a shaker card! Something about it just fascinates me! OK .. so I'm easily amused! HAHA! The finishing touch on this one is a few BUTTERFLY SPRINKLES! They're dancing along with this ballerina.
Have a great day! I hope you find some time to make something beautiful!
