Magnolia DT November sketch project - Make a Shaker


Can you believe it's NOVEMBER??? I sure can't! Where in the heck has the year gone? It's time for a new Design Team challenge over at Magnolia-Licious, and this month we're being hosted by the extremely talented and awesome Barb Hardeman. Barb challenged us to "make a shaker". I LOVE shaker cards!  For mine, I chose to use one of my all time favorite Tildas,  #310 Waiting Tilda (not in stock right now) and the sled she's sitting on appears to be out of stock as well. Please just email Diana if you're interested in it. They're colored with Copic markers.


Cardstock is Bazzill and the patterned paper is from Bearly Mine digital papers. I used a combination of micro beads and Polar White Flower Soft inside. The frame is made with a Martha Stewart punch around the page set, and then I just cut out the inside with a ruler and craft knife and then attached a piece of acetate. I made my shaker box by just using dimensional tape. We would love it if you would join us in the challenge for a chance to win a prize from Magnolia-licious! Just visit Magnolia-licious Highlites blog for all the details! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Have a great day!
