Mother's Day Garden Shaker Card

Happy Tuesday all my crafty friends. So, I was asked by Die Cuttin' Diva's to be a Guest Diva the other week. I was so excited, my first time being a guest designer, that I happily accepted. This weeks challenge over at Die Cuttin' Diva's is National Garden Month, so I chose to make this beautiful shaker card.

Seeing as Mother's Day is right around the corner I decided to make my National Garden Month card a "MOM" card. The MOM and shaker were both cut on my Cricut Explore using the MOM Shaker Card SVG file from My Treasured Kutz (MTK). I inked the edges of the card and patterned paper to give it a vintage look; then attached the patterned paper to the card base. The inside of the shaker heart was done with a miscellaneous flower stamp from my stamp collection. I used chalk to color the stamp. Then, finished the shaker up by adding colorful seed beads to the inside and attaching the heart to the card.

I then handmade all these gorgeous flowers using several MTK Nature's Beauty flower dies (listed below) I cut all these flower, inked the edges, used a stylus
to curl the ends of the flowers. I then rolled the flowers using a paper quilling tool, finally gluing the bottom together and adding a pearl to the center of each flower. Then attached them all to the card to create a stunning card that any mother would be happy to get.

Here's a close up of how awesome and beautiful these flowers turned out.

I really love the size of these flowers because they are the perfect accent to any card.

This is the first shaker card I have ever made. It was so much fun and I love how it turned out that I can't wait to make many, many more shaker cards.

Thank's for visiting my blog. 
I hope everyone has a blessed day!
