Mother's Day Challenge

Today is the kickoff for the Mother's Day Challenge at OWH. This is the perfect thing to get me started on those cards. It's been awhile since I've made any cards for a specific holiday and now is the time. I wanted them to be shaker cards since everyone seems to love receiving them. Here is what I accomplished today:

There are 19 of these. I'm not sure why it came out an odd number. The purple and pink have differend background papers and different bead colors. I used the Geo Flowers embossing folder from The Paper Studio and the hearts Nestabilities. I wanted to get at least one card completed so I'd know if I needed to make any adjustments.

That's dark purple paper on the top, not blue. For some reason my camera isn't fond of purple. The sentiment is from Fiskars and is edged in black and popped. I flipped through the sketches and found 36 fit my needs for this card.

Happy creating!

  2. Great job Cherie! My camera doesn't like purple either!

  3. I would love to try making these. Do you have any tips or a link to a tutorial that you used?

    1. Hi Kathryn.
      I've been making them for years and learned how at a SU party. If you type in shaker card on youtube, there are tons of tutorials. My one tip...patience! They take awhile to make which is why I do so many at one time. Good luck!

  4. Thanks! That might be a good project for next weekend!


I am always interested in what you leave me a comment below!
