Well, shake it up, baby, now (Shake it up, baby)
Twist and shout (Twist and shout)
C’mon c’mon, c’mon, c’mon, baby, now (Come on baby)
Come on and work it on out (Work it on out)
~ Twist and Shout lyrics, 1961
The current challenge at Catered Crop is to do a shaker box. I have done lots of shaker boxes this summer since my first shaker on April 27 - here they all are gathered together. They are a little fussy to do, but really not difficult. Here's a video that helped me.
My card today is a throwback to my very first shaker card. I like the mini shaker with the balloon die cut. The first card was cute, but I wanted a more elegant look for this one. (FYI - it's not unusual for me to see a problem with a card after I photo it. In this case, I wish I would have added some color behind that balloon so it stood out better. On many cards, it's not all that difficult to do some minor surgery and take another photo. Not so much with shaker cards - once they are adhered, you are stuck with it - so you'll just have to imagine a colorful balloon!)
As always, Linda has curated a Pinterest board to give you lots of inspiration. Throughout the week, the Catered Crop design team will give their takes on shaker cards, and on Sunday, they will all be gathered together on a Catered Crop post.
I hope to see you shake it up!!
