SC 067/12....

What a great challenge we were set this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  All we have to do is create a Shaker Card - NO layout!!!!!  If you are like me, then I haven't created one for so long that I can't remember the last time I did one.

Measurements -
Base Card - Chocolate Chip - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 - Cherry Cobbler - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 - Chocolate Chip - 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" or 8.5cm x 8.5cm
Layer 4 - Very Vanilla - 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" or 8cm x 8cm
Layer 5 - Window Sheet or Acetate - 3 1/8" x 3 1/8" or 8cm x 8cm

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Petite Pairs, Nature Walk
Ink - Chocolate Chip
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
DSP - First Edition Speciality
Ribbon - 1/2" Seam Binding - Cherry Cobbler, Crochet Trim - Victoria
Punches - 2 1/2" Circle
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Glimmer Brad - Champagne, Glass Stampin' Glitter - Gold (Retired), Stampin' Markers - Marina Mist & Old Olive, Mini Glue Dots

I randomly stamped images over the DSP with Chocolate Chip Ink, prior to adhering to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  I ran a piece of Cherry Cobbler Ribbon across the middle, tucked ends under & adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

For my window, I inked my image with Stampin' Markers - Old Olive & Marina Mist, stamped direct onto Very Vanilla, inked my sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink & stamped onto the same piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.  I placed my images onto the Cardstock, so that they would be able to be seen once I had adhered the top piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock.

As I didn't have any Double Sided Mounting Tape, I made my own.  I applied Sticky Strip all around the outer edge of my stamped piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, ensuring that all sides were covered.  I cut 2 pieces of thick Cardboard - from the Glitter Paper - & adhered to the tops of the Sticky Strip, ensuring that all areas were covered as I didn't want any pieces of the glitter to escape, applied another layer of Sticky Strip, carefully poured Glitter onto my image - not too much as you don't want it to take over - punched a circle into the middle of the Chocolate Chip Cardstock with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch, adhered the Window Sheet to the wrong side & then finally to the top of the Sticky Strip.  I applied Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of this piece & adhered to the card.

I tied a bow with the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, found 2 small pieces of Crochet Trim that happen to be in the same container as my Ribbon & decided to use them as well.  A Glimmer Brad was attached to the middle & finally adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots.

We hope you will jon us this week for this fun challenge.  Head over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to chek out what both Kris & Vicki have created, create your project, post to your blog or on line group & then link back with Mr Linky.  We would love to see your creation!

You know I love this set but do not have a clue how to use it. You always showcase it in such beautiful ways. Fabulous card, oh and a gorgeous bow.
