The new Jillibean Soup paper collections have arrived and this fun shaker card was created with the “You Make Miso Happy” collection. This month I played with several embossing folders with my card bases. This one has a textile pattern that looked great on the white cardstock card base. In green ink onto green patterned paper I stamped the succulent plant. Next I chose the background black text paper for the coffee cup, making sure that the “Smile” word was aligned for easy viewing. Then the shaker fillers were chosen: white pearls, black sequins and iridescent pink hearts, these all fit the card theme well. Then I chose the pink pattern paper for the base and used the new washi sheet stickers to create the top border strip in turquoise. Last I added some pea pod die cuts: bird, flowers, leaf and the “Choose Happiness” sentiment.
Tip: to allow the shaker to open properly with the flower attached I had to cut the yellow flower in half, but once assembled you can hardly tell!
