I am totally in love with the new SHAKER card system that Close to My Heart released this catalogue so I had to make one with the Grateful Heart papers. 

Caroline at my Cardmaking class put it all together for me. The base is 4 x 5.25 and a 1 x 4 inch strip of the blue pattern and a zip strip 0.5 x 4. 

Then I cut the shapes with the Thin Cuts—Shaker Window & Confetti
White daisy for the large circle, then I stamped Happy Birthday in Sapphire ink with Mini Birthday Party Hat stamp set. Saffron cardstock for the ring and stars. Plus Loose Sequins—Silver

The best thing Close to My Heart released is the Shaker Window Foam & Acetate
These fit the circles perfectly and make it so easy to make gorgeous shaker cards. I put my stars and a few sequins into the circle before closing it up. I think I could have put quite a few more in before its considered too full :) Although with words inside you need to leave room for the words to show through. 

Caroline & I will be doing an instructional video in the coming weeks to explain how to make these cute cards. Check us out on YouTube "Cardmaking with Caroline & Vandra".
