Keep Smiling

Today I have a super bright card to share with you, and it features a bit of a different type of shaker element. 
To create it, I used the fabulous Big Hugs die from Simon Says Stamp, a sentiment from the new Hand Lettered Encouragement set, fun Avery Elle papers, and my own Rainbow Sparkly Shaker Selection.
Instead of the usual shaker, I actually added a load of Multi Matte Medium to the background paper, then added my shaker material all over it, pressing it down so it stuck to the paper. Instead of all the shaker contents hiding at the bottom of the card, they fill it. And I added some extra before sealing it up to make sure it still shakes!!

Great shaker card and I like that you don't need a special die to make a shaker card. Really fun card. Love your ideas.
