Celtic Shaker Card
St.Patrick's Day is getting ever so close— with a little luck, you can still get some crafting in! This card is made with unique chipboard shaker elements; these can be painted or stamped to add a little color, but for this project, we kept it the wood texture.

Tips and Techniques for DIY Shamrock:
The DIY Shamrocks are rather simple and adorable when clustered together on a card. Add foam dots behind for volume, ink the edges, finish with a pretty accent crystal and you've got a gem of a card.
Shaker Filler Mix:The mix is what makes shaker cards magical. This project used Lucky Charmz Sparkletz from Buttons Galore, a festive blend of sequins, beads, crystals and shapes perfect for St.Patrick's Day crafts. A few of the little charms were used to adorn the card itself for a little extra shimmer.
The card also has a few 3D glitter Shamrocks mixed into the clusters for a bit of luck (and glitz). These are shank buttons but very easy to snip the back off and glue to any surface you desire.
