MCT Inspiration Wednesday~ EASTER Shaker Card

 Good Morning and Happy Hump day everyone!
It's time for another
My Creative Time Inspiration Wednesday.
If you are new to my blog or to what Inspiration Wednesday is all about, it is
where the DT makes a project of our choice based on an inspiration subject.
My inspiration comes from a the recent Stretch Your Dies online class I took. I have not had much time to try out the new techniques that I have learned BUT I have watched all the videos and plan on using some of these techniques in upcoming projects :)
Anyways Jennifer McGuire made a beautiful CELEBRATE shaker card using alphabet dies so I thought I would use her tips and tricks to make an EASTER card.
I used the Uppercase Fun Dies to cut make the shaker windows and I filled each section with some pale green (hard to see in the picture) and pink sequins, silver stars and some pink seed beads.
Before filling the shaker part, I did stamp my sentiment. I used the one from the stamp set~To My Best Peep and masked off parts of the sentiment so I could add the sentiments above and below the shaker. I also wanted to keep with the Easter/Spring colors so I used the paint slatters to add some extra color to the otherwise plain card front.

My Creative Time Products Used:

Additional Products Used:
Ranger Dye Ink~Electric Lime and Pink Gumball
sequins, seed beads
craft foam, foam adhesive tape

So what do you think????? Want to see more projects?
Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the DT made!
