Shaker Card ~ Color Dare #502

 Our Design Team at Color My Heart Color Dare has a new color challenge for you. For this challenge you must use the color Capri. Then pick ONE of the colors below to pair with Capri. There are some free colors you can also use. 

We reference Close To My Heart colors but you can use any brand you have as long as you can make a very close match. Kind of close doesn't count. Make any paper craft you like. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page

I paired Capri with Grape for my card. I also used a Neutral called Pewter along with White Daisy. You can see all our beautiful cardstock colors here.  The card base is from our White Cards and Envelopes Value Pack.  This is a must have item! You'll be ready to make a card any time you need one!

Using several of our Thin Cut Dies I created the background and the frame from the shaker element. You can see them below.  The Bow is from a retired Thin Cut Die. 

For the shaker part I used a couple colors of our Loose Gems. They are so pretty! I also added some Gold Star Confetti for fun. Using the foam + acetate (see below) makes it easy to construct a shaker element!

I added a few Gold Glitter Gems and painted the Happy Birthday with a Gold Shimmer Brush to finish the look.

If you need a Maker (consultant) I'd be happy to help.
