Perfect Mix, Faux Shaker Card

Faux Shaker, how could that be? Yep, you use a Clear Envelope to put your “shaker” pieces in. So clever, and no this wasn’t something I though of. I’ve seen several on Pinterest. This is another card my Stamp Club Gals did this month. The Perfect Mix is also on the Retirement List.

You start off your card by stamping the eggs with Crumb Cake Ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock. Slip that into your Clear Envelope and carefully add your shaker pieces. We used the Sprinkles Embellishments and punched some hearts with the Confetti Hearts Punch. Both are on the Retirement list. Once you get your shaker pieces in, you will fold the Clear Envelope all the way down. Add some Tear & Tape across the edge of the Crumb Cake cardstock, and fold down so all you see is the Crumb Cake cardstock. Make sense?

Then wrap your Mint Macaron Ribbon around. Now you can add the shaker to the Calypso Coral and Mint Macaron card base.

The bowl was embossed with Craft White Ink and White Embossing Powder onto the Mint Macaron Stitched Shaped Circle. The sentiment is also a Stitched Shape in Calypso Coral. The measuring spoons are embossed onto Smoky Slate and cut out. (You can do it, really its easy). Once you have the embossing done, use add some Dimensionals to the circles and adhere to the Faux Shaker. Done!
