This week at Cardz 4 Guyz we'd like to see your Shaker Cards - and don't forget to make them suitable for a man!
Now shaker cards of all types are very fashionable at the moment, but I have a big confession to make. I don't like them. I don't like them to look at - if I've ever made a nice comment on one of your own shaker cards, it will have been because there was something other than the shaker element that I liked - and I hate making them. Which of course means that I have very little to hand in the way of suitable supplies for them.
However a rummage through my stash yielded these tiny black and cream buttons, so small that I've never been able to find a use for them, and I thought the wheels of the penny farthing bicycle would complement the roundness of the buttons, especially when mounted on top of a round shaker.
Not one of my greatest cards, but proof that however limited your supplies, a resourceful crafter can usually come up with something. With hindsight, I should have distressed the edges of the backing paper, or at least inked them a bit, and added more embellishments, but all I could think was "Shaker, shaker!".
I'm sure you are all much, much better at making shaker cards than I am, so why not pop over to Cardz 4 Guyz and show us what you can come up with.
