Holiday Shaker Cards Class

We had a GREAT time at the Holiday Shaker Cards Class at the store on Tuesday evening! Below are the cards we made, with some descriptions! And please read all the way down for some additional information!

This card uses the "Vintage Postcard" stamp set from Flourishes (currently in stock at the store!), and was highly inspired by this design from my good friend, and Flourishes Sr. Design Team member Danielle Kennedy. (It was copied with her permission!) :) As you can see, we cut out a "frame" for the image inside, and with a layer of acetate and some chunky glass glitter and microbeads, we created this beautiful Christmas Shaker card!

And the pumpkin card below was inspired by the shaker card tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. We used some new Bella Blvd. papers for the design, and added some clear microbeads inside the pumpkin frame to create the shaker!
NOW, if you missed out on this class and would be interested in another one I am considering having it again! However, instead of the pumpkin, we'll be using the Nestabilities Ornaments dies shown below (since Fall is nearing it's end!) If you would be interested in a repeat class, please leave a comment here or email me (tammy dot toyrifix at gmail dot com). I don't have a date in mind yet, but will wait to hear from people!

Those are great looking cards! I'd love to do the class, but don't really have time to get over there.
