Now on to the card I created for today:

I have been loving make shaker cards this month and today I have another one, but with a twist.  I made it into a double shaker card.

The card base is created with Whip Cream Cardstock and a piece of Create and Bloom Pattern Paper.  I then cut a square (the same size as the cloud icon inside) out of the front panel of the card.  I then built the shaker open from the back of the front panel.  
If you have never made a shaker card before it is very fun.   

The standard layers of a shaker card are:
1. cardstock
3. Foam squares or strips are easier
4. Add your "sprinkles"
5. Another piece of Cardstock.  In the case of this card, I used another piece of acetate.

When finished, I had something that looked like this:

I then added the square icon from Doodlebug inside the card.

To finish the card, I added the sentiment on the front stamped with Black Licorice on Pool Play cardstock.
I hope you will try this type of card soon.
