Shower Shaker

I was in need of a shower card for a young lady who is getting married soon. I struggled with this type of card until I found this cute designer paper and decided that it would work well for my card and could in fact, work for either a bridal shower or a baby shower. And, I also found some sentiments that worked great with it too. Inside I added a cut out portion of the pattern paper and another sentiment from the Enjoy the Sunshine Kit.


The pattern paper is from the Gina K. Designs Spring Parade pack. And the sentiments are from the Gina K. Designs Enjoy The Sunshine Kit. I stamped the sentiment inside the shaker which was framed with a cutting of several layers of  MFT Die-namics Single Stitch Line Circle Frame dies. Inside the shaker I added various elements from my Mom's stash of confetti designs.

As I mentioned before I had no sequin mixes for shakers so I resorted to checking into my box of goodies I inherited. But I will soon be having proper shaker elements to use in my cards as I finally placed an order for some sequin mixes.

Also required for the bridal shower was for each person to include a recipe. So I even decorated my recipe card using a stamp from Embossing Arts in the corner and along the top I added a swirly designed stamp from Gina K. Designs.


Along with the recipe card and card will be a gift of money for the bride-to-be to spend anyway she wishes.

Well, today we are cloudy and having a few showers of rain. It is still a fairly warm temperature but since it is windy it doesn't feel that way. So I am staying inside and might work on a card or two as well. I hope your day is going great and thanks for the visit and lovely comments.

God bless,
Verna

Darling card and I love how you improvised for sequins. They look so cute. That paper is perfect for a shower card. The recipe sounds delicious. About how many apples does it take to cover the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan?

Oh my gosh, I simply ADORE that patterned paper. It's so stinkin' cute, and perfect for a shower card. The shaker bits are perfect too, you will make the bride-to-be smile. Thanks for the recipe too. I use the same ingredients in my apple crisp, but I have never heard of using a whole cup of oil in the mixture. I will have to try that.

That's the cutest shower card, Verna! Adorable paper you found and another fun shaker! Love that you're loving these shakers! The confetti inside is a perfect match, and very happy and giggly. Great idea to have everyone make a recipe card. The bride to be must like to cook. If so, she'll appreciate these! Yours is sure decorated up cute!
