Mother’s Day Edge-to-Edge Shaker

Hey everybody! Well, another Thursday has rolled around which means the weekend is rapidly approaching! Not a bad thing, huh?! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring our glitter cardstock that’s on sale this month. I created my first edge-to-edge shaker and love how it turned out! The touch of our Gold Glitter cardstock with the layered flower on the front of this commissioned Mother’s Day card really looks nice. The die cut flower has many layers and was created with several shades of purple, green and brown cardstock, and a little bit of golden yellow cardstock in the flower center.

Using the Sizzix Bloom Colorize Thinlits, I die cut all the pieces of the layered flower from our Basis Dark Purple cardstock, Pop-Tone Grapesicle cardstock, Pop-Tone Grape Jelly cardstock, Astrobrights Planetary Purple cardstock, Grape Jellybean cardstock, Basis Pink cardstock, Pop-Tone Cotton Candy cardstock, Pop-Tone Gumdrop Green cardstock, Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock, Basis Green cardstock, Royal Sundance Linen Emerald cardstock, Basis Gold cardstock, Brown Bag Kraft Paper and Basis Brown cardstock, and assembled it.

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from 80# Solar White cardstock, Gold Glitter cardstock and Basis Dark Purple cardstock which I adhered together. I cut a strip of Gold Glitter cardstock and adhered it toward the bottom of the panel. I laid the assembled flower on the panel to get an idea of where to stamp the sentiment, and then stamped the sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Mom stamp set in Memento Grape Jelly ink. I slid the panel into a Tonic Studios A2 Shaker Pocket along with a pinch of shaker bits (consisting of an assortment of Spiegelmom Scraps and Darice sequins) and adhered it to the front of the card base.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of Basis Dark Purple cardstock and Gold Glitter cardstock. I stamped another sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Mom stamp set in Memento Grape Jelly ink and layered the panel on the dark purple cardstock.

And here’s one more look… not too bad for my first attempt at an edge-to-edge shaker card, even though it was difficult to photograph with all that acetate! Loving the gold glitter cardstock with this layered flower!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
