Teeny Tiny Shaker Card for Adults. I love shaker cards, but I do feel that they are normally made with children in mind. I am not sure if this is fair on us adults. So time to remedy that with an adult shaker card.
I decided to use one of the frames from the Petal Promenade Designer Series Papers. I seem to be drawn to these at the moment (more with this suite tomorrow – just saying!) and I wanted to use the frames, so the two ideas coincided nicely. A quick bit of fussy cutting, add some Window Sheet, some adhesive strips and you are pretty much done. Well, other than the shaker elements, which were an interesting item, and this definitely should only be used for adult shaker cards. What are they?
You know those little bags of Desiccant Silica Gel you get in some packages? Those. I added a couple of drops of re-inker into a little pot, added the beads and gave them all a good shake. As if by magic, they absorb the ink and take on the colour. Thank you to Dena Rekow of The Creativity Cave for that idea.
All of this goodness was made into a 3 x 3″ shaker card, that does fit into the 3 x 3″ Envelopes, so all is good as far as that is concerned. I love that these are definitely an adult card.
