Baby rattle shaker card

I was kindly sent a Cheery Lynn shaker card kit from Fat cats card corner, and I have made a card and video using this kit.

The kit comes with everything you need to make the shaker portion.  It has the front and back die parts, the acetate, the foam sheets, the shaker material.  So all you have to do is choose what card you want for the back and front and go for it.  

The card I am putting the shaker onto, is a white card base with a background paper that is done in a pink plaid pattern.  The 'quilt' pieces were made with the Couture creations scalloped square die and four different scraps of baby pink papers.  I went around the squares and the background paper with a sukura stardust gelly roll pen, which gives a subtle detail to the background.  Then I cut a white scalloped circle and a centre circle in another pink patterned paper, for the shaker part to go on.

I then made the shaker rattle but added a range of sequins to go with the shaker material that comes in the kit.  There are two sheets of shaker material.  One saying 'It's a girl' and one saying 'It's a boy'.  

Finally the sentiment I used a Memory box scrip die and stacked three of the dies on top of each other to make a bit more substantial die and then stamped the daughter in silver and cut it out leaving a white border.  Finally a tiny satin bow and a little iridescent gem in the middle to finish the card off.

I get asked a lot for baby cards by my colleagues, so this one I think will be quite popular.  

Here is the video showing how I made the card

I absolutely adore this lovely card, Helen! Thank you for sharing your YouTube video of how to make it! I cannot find a link to the Cherry Lynn shaker rattle die set you showed. Do you have a link to the product? Thank you and God bless you!

Sorry Roberta, I couldn't get your email on your profile to be able to answer your question. The link on Cheery Lynn is for the baby rattle shaker die. Hope that helps
