Inside of card above. Outside below.
This is a shaker card from Creative Cuts and More. The kit comes with everything you need to make the card. You choose the color of your card base, and the accent frame from dozens of papers. That's pretty cool, but what really makes these kits neat is that they send you a foam circle with adhesive on both sides. You lay that on your image, put in your micro beads, and put the pre-cut acetate circle on top. It's SO easy! I have been stamping for eight years and I never once made a shaker card because it looked like WAY too much trouble to me fiddling with all the foam tape and such.

For the inside of the shaker, I used the branch from the Stylized Flowers set from A Chemistry With Paper. I love this branch, it looks so pretty, no matter what you do to it! I stamped it in VM and embossed in black. Then I did the flowers and embossed them in pink. There is Black Diamond Stickles around the scallop and Cotton Candy Stickles on the inside scallop. The inside scallop I cut with my nesties.
