I make a few shaker cards each year, and I always just love them! Typically, they are bright and cheery, but today’s share is a little more sophisticated. The Meandering Meadow Suite will be available 7 November for everyone, and available now for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.
The Meandering Meadow Suite features stamps, dies, ribbon, embellishments, and these gorgeous, gorgeous papers. Every single one is beautiful and could work for this shaker card design.
The colors in this daisy print coordinated quite well with the Iridescent Shaker Circles.
I also really like embellishment that aren’t round. As you can imagine, if I had round shaker pieces, and then round embellishments, it would be a bit of overkill. These wonderful gold birds are part of the suite, and are a perfect accent to the Meandering Meadow papers.
For this sample, I put one bird inside the shaker element, and the other directly on the card front to add some extra dimension and interest. I also like that the birds are facing different directions, which gives a lot of versatility for your creating.
