Delightful Decorations Shaker Card

I have not made a Shaker Card in a long time.  I had ran across on my worktable, a bulb with the center punched out and I didn't want to toss it out so I thought and thought and then came up with the idea to make a shaker card using it.  After all I had just gotten some new Shaker Frames because I couldn't find the ones I had.  Imagine that, not finding anything in my messy workroom!!! LOL But the best part of this is, I did find them and now I have plenty!!! LOL  

I used the Delightful Decorations for the bulb.  The center is punched out using a 1" circle punch.  Then I stamped the tree from the Jolly Bingo set.  I LOVE using that set.  I hope it shows up in the next catalog.  I have had lots of fun with it and I am continuing to have fun with it during the holidays!  

I stamped the words on my card using the Chock-full of Cheer set.

Then I took a piece of clear Window Sheet and covered the back of the bulb with it.  I took my Shaker Frame and attached it to the tree piece of card stock.  Then I removed the sticky top on the frame.  I added some micro beads and then I lined up the tree with bulb and stuck the two together.  It's dry in my home so a bunch of the beads just clung to the Window Sheet.  But after shaking them a bit they settled to the bottom.  

I tied a ribbon to the top of the bulb and set all the layers in place.  This was a very fun card to make.  I have always enjoyed making shaker cards.  

You can find the tutorial to make a shaker card here.  And you can find the clear no hole micro mini beads here.   

Have fun with this and thank you SO much for visiting today,
