The Friday Mashup #34

Hello again, I am back for a second post. This time for The Friday Mashup challenge for this week.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project featuring "A Shaker Card".
  2. Or Make a project with a "Winter Theme".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Winter Themed Shaker Card. "

I have only ever made a shaker card once before, it was in a card class I took years ago. It was a disaster, I had made up my mind to just not bother...*sigh* ahh Mashup, I just could not resist. It took some futzing around but I made it work, I might even try again :). For my window, I cut up the plastic packaging from an embossing folder I brought this week.

My shaker contents are beads and large chunk glitter. I heat embossed the background image with navy embossing powder, then embossed Joy with Midnight stars sparkly embossing powder to give it some glitz.

Supplies: Natural white and navy cardstock, Designer paper- Basic Grey, Verse-Glad Tidings, Verve-Die cuts, Sizzix embossing folder, misc ribbon and Recollections Gems.



  1. SO pretty Sis.

    I know that does not say much, but my brain is mush. I made myself stay and comment because its so totally comment worthy.

    Love you

  2. Wow at first Nina when I looked at your card I thought what a pretty tag for the front....then I looked more closely and saw it was the shaker part of your card!


    Thanks for sharing
