Timeless Tuesday ~ Shake it Baby!

Howdy Flourishes fans!  We certainly hope you've had a great holiday so far.  I'm looking forward to spending New Year's Eve tomorrow with my hubby here at home.  I hope you have a great time ringing in the new year!

Our last Timeless Tuesday Challenge for 2013, is a fun challenge!  This week, we have our final December Guest Designer, Jessi Fogan with us and she's challenging everyone to...

Here is a quick link to a Splitcoaststampers tutorial on how to make a basic shaker card, click here!

For the shaker part of my card I began by die cutting a frame using some teal cardstock and then I cut a piece of clear coverstock and a piece of Classic White Cardstock to match the frame.  I stamped the pretty little bouquet from our new "Lots of Thought" stamp set and coloured it using Copic Markers.  I also stamped my sentiment below the image using Memento "Rhubarb Stalk " ink.

I applied a thin ring of Scor-Pal tape all around the back of my frame and then adhered my clear coverstock to it.  Then I used some thin foam tape and adhered that to the frame, adding some glitter and sequins to the inside of my frame.  I then adhered the flower image to the frame.

Here's my final card...

Here's a close up of my final shaker part of my card...

For the inside of my card, I stamped the birthday greeting and the numbers form the "Numbers in Blossom" stamp set and coloured them to match the bouquet on the front of my card.
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope our challenge inspires you to create this week!

Before you get too far, be sure to visit the rest of the DT's blogs, as well as our Guest Designer and leave them a little blog love. In return, they will amaze you with their beautiful work...
Thanks for stopping by!  Happy New Year everyone!

Gorgeous!!! LOVE the double frames and winter designs, and your image is SO pretty! I knew you'd rock this challenge, Allison! I'm so glad you showed the acetate cut with the tissue paper still attached. I had a dickens of a time with mine collecting all kinds of debris because I removed the paper before I cut! It never even occurred to me to leave it in place. Duh! Hope you and the hubs have a very Happy New Year! ~Hugs!
