As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I do love shaker cards and when I saw THIS CARD by the lovely Kelly Alverez it gave me the idea to make a star shaped one for a change :-)

I used Simon's Soft Navy Cardstock for the base card and I just love thi DIY Paper pack, the cork paper looks real and matches the real cork stickers perfectly. I added some Twinklets Diamond Dust in with the sequins as this makes a great shaker sound,,,, it is quite heavy, a bit like granulated sugar and is perfect for shaker cards.

I used a Silhouette Cameo to write the sentiment.

So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!

Cork is indeed wood as it comes from the bark of the cork oak tree, so your fabulous star shaker card fits out challenge perfectly! Love the blue paper as it looks like denim.
