Mother’s Day Shaker Card

Hello, hello! Welcome back! Today is a special day as I am going to let you in on a secret… Well, to put it simply, it was love at first sight. At that time, I just did not had the courage nor the means to pursue it. I was crushed. What am I talking about, you ask? The Charmed stamp set by Mama Elephant, of course! I have had the longest crush on this set and now my dream has (sort of) finally come true!




So, I wrote before that Katy from Hook, Line and Inker sent me a package a while back; what I did not mention was that she was thoughtful enough to include some stamped images and die-cuts from Charmed! Needless to say, I was over the moon! They are so precious to me and all along I was saving them for the right card. As you could guess from the title, I am finally using them for a Mother’s Day card!




The card front was a patterned paper by Rosie’s Studio. I decided to work with the owl, wreath, ribbon and tree branch from Charmed which were coloured in with Copic markers with very minimal shading. To make the images stand out, I popped them up on a pierced circle frame which was mounted with foam tapes. I die-cut the word “Happy” from this Happy Birthday die twice – once from a a silver foil card stock and another from a grey card stock – and stacked them together to create more contrast. I paired that with “Mother’s Day” from Happy Everything, which was heat embossed in white detail powder on a piece of black card stock. To fill the shaker window, I used some heart sequins and embellished the card front with some Crystal Clear Sequins. Detailed instructions on creating a shaker card can be found here and here.


Hope you find today’s card inspiring. Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!


Hugs, Michelle
