Welcometo 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 12Collection Pack.  It's as cute as can be with the sweetest touch of allthings lucky including Tulla and Norbert.

Thank you forvisiting.  Happy crafting.
