Easter "Shaker" Card

Welcome! I made this sweet "Hoppy Easter" shaker card with the absolutely adorable "Easter Animals" (C1706) stamp set.  

The base layer of my Easter egg is cut with Bashful cardstock.  The lighter side is shown for my base.  Remember, other than White Daisy and Black, all of the Close to My Heart cardstock now two toned, one side being a shade lighter than the other.  😊

I cut an additional egg shape from a page protector, to make a window for our shaker.  Paper from the Gimme Some Sugar Creative Collection was then cut for the decorative front of the egg.  

Using two layers of foam tape on my base I built an opening area for my Gold Glitter Paper hearts to freely move about between the base and protector/decorative layers.  

Liquid Glass was used to adhere the top decorative layer to the clear protector.  

I love the combination of the Willow, Toffee and Pixie inks with these papers. So appropriate for spring and Easter paper crafts! 

Of course a few strokes with the Clear Shimmer Brush and some Bitty Sparkles give this Easter card an additional touch of bling.  

Before signing off, a quick reminder, throughout February, Close to My Heart is Pretty in Pink with discounts of 25% and 30% on selected items and bundles.
