Little Blue House “Clearly Creative” Blog Hop

Today I am sharing my "Clearly Creative" blog hop project for The Little Blue House. There is also a super yummy prize involved if you comment on all of the LBH design teams blogs.

For my Clearly Creative project, I made a shaker card.

1. You can make your card any size that you like, I used a 4 ¼ x 5 ½ card. You will also need another piece of cardstock the same size as the face of your card. For the Bella Blvd Clear Cut Sheet, cut it a ¼ inch wider than the face of your card. 

2. Cut a circle in the cardstock piece and then line it up on the front of your card and trace the circle onto the front of the card and then cut it out. 

3. Using a small cellophane bag (I recycled an embellishment bag) pour some beads or glitter into it and fold the end of it up and glue down. Adhere it to the outside of your card.

4. Adhere the cardstock piece onto the front of your card and over the shaker bag.

5. Embossing the Bella Blvd Clear Cut Sheet is a fun way to add texture to them. Fold the extra ¼ inch behind your card and adhere it to the back of your card and embellish it with the cute stickers from the Echo Park Anything Goes collection. 


I hope you enjoyed my shaker card tutorial. Make sure to hop along to all the LBH designers blogs and comment. The more you comment, the more chances you will have to win this super yummy prize.
