Miso Happy Shaker Card

Hello, hello! I have just started taking my first Online Card Classes (OCC) by Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner, Debby Hughes and guests. In fact, today is the Wrap Up Day of the class. If you are new to OCC, it houses a global team of fabulous crafters/ card makers who guide you through tonnes of interesting video-based classes. The fun does not stop here: there are also innumerable opportunities to show off share what you created in class, as well as gossip discuss with other fellow students. Bouts of headaches have left me falling way behind in class but, fret not, all students have lifetime access to the classes that they sign up for. In other words, I can attend the class over and over again (which is amazing because I foresee that refreshers are an absolute necessity)!


Clearly (pun not intended), the class illuminates (ha!) the glaring (I lied!) challenges that we all have with acetate and vellum, from how to attach them to a sheer (last one, I promise) amount of techniques to incorporate them in our cards. So today, I decided to use both of those elements in creating a shaker card, which is one of my favourite interactive cards to make. If you do not have acetate sheets in hand, you could use transparency sheets like I did or recycled clear packages. I also used silver vellum for extra sparkle.


This card was created using only the Miso Happy set by Sweet Stamp Shop stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, with the sentiment heat embossed in clear detail powder. The miso images were all coloured with watered down distress inks in Mowed Lawn, Wilted Violet, Shaded Lilac and Spiced Marmalade. I fussy cut one of the images, accentuated it with Glossy Accents and adhered it to the card front. I ran an orange card stock through the Pierced Circle Frame die to create a shaker window.

Hope you like the card I created. Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!

Hugs, Michelle
