A Rooster and a Hen

I must be on an animal wedding kick (see the Turtle Love card a post down). I made a shaker card for the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Festivities, using colors chosen by their Fortune Teller thingy. I admit, I had to have my son help me figure the teller out, he makes them all the time.

Shakers are difficult to photograph-any tips are welcome. I started with a Berry Sorbet panel that was die cut with three windows, added some grass and a rooster and hen to the ends, respectively. I then die cut the same trio of windows out of white foam and added and acetate panel to the middle window. I stamped the sentiment onto a white card base and before adhering the foam, I added some hearts from Lil' Inker Designs. I love that there are teeny-tiny hearts in this die, it is perfect for shakers! The pink window panel was affixed to the cardbase then, over the foam, to create a shaker. The colors the Fortune Teller picked for me were: Berry Sorbet, Simply Chartreuse and Royal Velvet.

Neenah Solar White 110lb Cardstock
