I created this fun, masculine shaker card for today’s blog hop.

I’m in love with the patina/oxidized metal look!

Tomorrow I’ll share a video to show you how!!

After creating the base layer, I decided this guy’s card needed a shaker element.

The Eastern Medallions Thinlits were used for the top of the shaker.

Used like this, it has a metal feel.

Inside you’ll see he shaker bits

from the Metallic Sequins Assortment — perfect!!

At the top of the card is the sentiment from Guy Greetings.

First, I stamped “congratulations” with Versamark.

Then, I heat embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.

I love, love, love the new 1/4″ Copper Trim (sneak peek 144179)!!!

Finally, I made the perfect backdrop for the sentiment layer.

By stretching and pulling the Copper Trim you get

this interesting metallic fabric look.
