Shaken, Not Stirred

This week Hambo Challenge blog asks crafters to find a technique on Splitcoaststampers and try it on a new card using a Hambo digi image.  I love sorting through the tutorials at SCS, and I found a simple, concise set of directions and video on making a shaker box card.

So I printed my Hambo digi image, called Bailey Liberty, along with one of the three sentiments that came with it.  After choosing papers for the card base and the shaker box, I colored Bailey with my trusty Copics (G00,000; E11,13,08,37) to coordinate.

Then I created my shaker box, with patterned paper, acetate, dimensional tape, and a handful of sequins, seed beads and a couple buttons!  I didn't want my shaker box to outshine my Hambo image (although I do think it looks smashing), so I used dimensional tape and attached the image next to the shaker box.

A couple "faux bows" with small snips of ribbon, a strip of printed ribbon, and a couple shimmery stars finish off my card.  Thank you Hambo Hoedown, Splitcoaststampers, and Beate Johns for the inspiration and the directions!!

Everyone loves a shaker card Pat, and making it a fourth of July themed one is a great idea! Love your use of the ribbons.
