Pledge of Allegiance Shaker Card


Boy oh boy, was this a hard one to photograph!!!! After MANY tries inside and outside, this is the best I could do!!! It was much easier and much more fun to make!!!

Today's featured stamper on Splitcoast is JOAN ERVIN!!! She is so awesome, as a person AND a stamper!! Joan is so talented that she was a part of the Dirty Dozen team last year! After studying her incredible gallery for about an HOUR, I chose this card because I absolutely LOVE light blue with red, loved the cuttlebug swirls for the water, loved the layout, and loved the glittery stars! All of these things added up turned into a patriotic shaker card! I started with Spellbinders Labels Four to make the shaker frames and acetate window. I Pledge Allegiance, from Our Daily Bread Designs, was stamped on the acetate with Stazon Jet Black. Two layers of foam tape were used to raise the shaker frame so that the beads inside could shake, shake, shake!! The flag inside the shaker is from God Bless America, also from ODBD. The Bashful Blue layers were ran through the CB with Swirls EF; instead of striped background paper, I used three strips of ribbon instead; and I couldn't find my star punch (another casualty of war from all-night crops!) so I made glittery butterflies instead with a Martha Stuart punch and stickles. Also, each of the layers was spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist....once again, hard to photograph! The star eyelets are retired from Stampin' Up.
Thanks again for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
