Birthday Shaker Card

Here's the birthday card I made for my MIL recently. I so suck at making shakers but I knew my MIL would appreciate my effort. I definitely need more practice making these. This card took me way too long to make and I almost scrapped it all together but in the end, I was able to salvage it! Joy (aka the shaker queen), you are my idol!! :-)

Wow! I love your shaker card for your MIL! I'm sure that she will love it. Shakers do take awhile but they are totally fun once you get the hang of it. TFS!

A shaker easel card! That's such a cool idea! I'm still too scared to even try a shaker card yet (or maybe too lazy!) Yours turned out great and I bet your mil really LOVED it!
