I Love Your Smile - Shaker Card

This year I wanted to make more shaker cards because I realised I enjoyed making them now and the shaker element always seem to add so much interest without going through the sometimes laborious process of making most interactive cards...and this is only the third shaker I have made this year...so hopefully I can make more...

On a white front panel,I first die cut the large word 'smile' and then stamped the leafy border stamp above and below it using Versamark ink and then heat embossed it using silver embossing powder...I then used salty ocean Oxide ink  to sponge the edges and splattered some water for effect...I used the same ink to colour in a few leaves in the embossed images...

Next,I started creating the shaker by first adhering a piece of acetate behind the die cut panel...I added some silver foil paper on the front of the card base and then added white craft foam to create the shaker well and added some  blue and silver sequins inside it....I then adhered the front panel to the card base and the shaker was ready..I only added a blue banner with 'i love your' sentiment heat embossed on it with silver embossing powder...

Here is a small video of my shaker card...I really like how easily the sequins slide and shake because of the smooth silver paper at the base of the shaker...
