Having been stamping for just under a year, I still feel somewhat like a “newbie” and have been trying to broaden my horizons by employing techniques and approaches I haven’t done before. The circles in this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch 317 seemed to lend itself for the perfect format to make my first shaker card. I was going to use some Christmas glitter as the filler; but, I quickly found out glitter was not the proper filler (it sticks to the image and doesn’t “float” when you shake it). I ended up snipping some flocked floral accent pieces that offered the illusion of snow in the shaker cup. I was pleasantly surprised how easy these shaker cups are to use!
