CCMC 325!

I decided to go "Clean & Simple" with the addition of a shaker this week for our challenge at Create with Connie & Mary! Here is our sketch for this week:

I started out with a card base of Crumb Cake Cardstock and stamped the wreath from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set in the center. I used Crumb Cake and Early Espresso Inks:

I then added the leaves from the Fall Fest stamp set stamped with the same ink colors. And now for my shaker:

First I cut a tag shape using the Angled Tag Topper Punch and used my Paper Cutter to cut a rectangle in the center. I then cut a piece from a Window Sheet to fit my tag and stamped the "hello" using VersaMark Ink and sprinkled Early Espresso Embossing Powder. I carefully set with my Heat Tool and then glued to the back of the hole in my tag. Did you know all of the left-over pieces from our Stampin' Dimensionals are perfect for a shaker card? I used both of the thinner sides that are left-overs and attached them to the underside of the tag to make a rectangle around the hole. I then sprinkled some sequins on the inside and also added stamped leaves cut out with the coordinating framelits. I finished off my shaker by cutting a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to fit on the rectangle of Stampin' Dimensionals and pressed it in place to seal the contents of the shaker. 

Before I glued the shaker to my card front, I added a piece of ribbon vertically and I also stapled a piece to my tag. I then glued the shaker to my card front!
