Welcome to Part 1 - St Patrick's Day Shaker Cards
Hello crafty friends!
Let's shake some luck into the month of March with St. Patrick's Day shaker cards. I don't think I know anyone who would pass on a little luck. Today I'll be showcasing chipboard shakers from Creative Embellishments and shaker mix from Buttons Galore.
Creative Embellishments has a giant assortment of chipboard shaker sets covering a wide range of holidays, occasions, whimsy, and classic shapes.
My festive shakers feature the following St. Patrick's Day favs: Cauldron shaker set and the Shamrock shaker set.
Let's talk shaker mix and embellishes.
Every shaker needs fabulous shaker mix. It's St. Patrick's Day so I am going for some mix that has a bit 'ol Irish magic or at least luck. The shamrock shaker uses Buttons Galore Seasonal Pine Doo Dadz, which are a combination of sparkly gems and shimmery pieces.
The Pot'O Gold Cauldron shaker uses Buttons Galore's Metallic Mix of gold shiny sequins and seed beads.
Both cards are finished with Buttons Galore’s Glitter Shamrock Buttons. These buttons have shanks. Depending on the project, I'll cut the shank off if I need the embellishment to be flat against the card/project. Most of the time, however, I leave the shank attached and thread wire through it. I'll use the wire as a "stem" and glue the stem to the card. project by adding a little wire to the shank.
My paper choice today is Photo Play Paper - Tulla and Norbert's Lucky Charm Collection - 12 x 12 Collection Pack. It's as cute as can be with the sweetest touch of all things lucky including Tulla and Norbert.
Thank you for visiting. Happy crafting.
