MFT Hits & Highlights: Shake It Up

For this month’s Hits & Highlights with My Favorite Things, we are challenged to use the largest frame from the A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics with the A2 Rectangle Shaker Pouches to create a full-sized shaker card! So why not fill it up with shiny stars and tons of shiny things? And I knew the perfect set to work that in!

These pouches make shaker cards a cinch! I created an ink blended panel of Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans distress oxide inks and added a splatter of white and gold paint.

I used the A2 Rectangle Frames Die-namics to die cut the large rectangle frame out of white card stock. I filled up the pouch will tons of various star sequins, iridescent and white sequins, and threw in some hearts too. I sealed the pouch against the background and added the frame thereafter.

I die cut the word ‘stars’ using the Shining Stars Die-namics, once out of gold glitter card stock and twice out of white card stock. I layered them together for dimension. Then, I heat embossed the words ‘reach for the’ from the Written in the Stars stamp set in white onto black card stock. I trimmed it down to a strip.

I added the sentiment in the center of the card to complete it. Shake it up and watch the card shimmer and shine!
