Stars and Stripes Patriotic Shaker Cards to Shake up Your Summer

Patriotic Cards
I am featuring some of Creative Embellishments patriotic chipboard pieces including the new shaker design - the USA Flag Shaker Set filled with Buttons Galore and More shaker mix.  

Interactive cards are the current trend. Cards that twist, pop and add that extra bit of surprise when opened.   Creative Embellishments is trend setting with it's unique chipboard shaker card designs. And I simply adore shaker cards because they are fun to make, fill, and give. 

Wondering what to use for shaker filler? 
A great shaker requires the perfect shaker mix to complete the card and make the magic happen.

 Don't sit at your crafty desk and look around for little bits.  You have easy options! You need something as dazzling as the card you just made.  

I filled my card with sequins and beads from Buttons Galore / 28 Lilac Lane ( Metallic Mix).   They have an assortment of sequins, beads, buttons in a rainbow of colors and styles creating the perfect shaker mix.

TIP:  Add your filler then use a good adhesive to seal the shaker with the pre-cut acrylic piece that comes in the kit.  I used Beacons 3-in-1glue because it dries clear and works well with a  variety of surfaces ( acrylics, plastics, wood, metal, fabric, canvas).

Here are the chipboard sets used in both of the cards presented today:

I created the cards for the monthly challenge at Creative EmbellishmentsThe inspirational image this month is shown above.  The twist for the month is to add banners or pendants to your project.   
My inspiration is actually more of an emotion/memory that  I get when I look at the challenge image.
I remember the summer festivals, amusement parks and family traditions centered around Memorial Day, July 4th and other patriotic events.  I created patriotic projects to tie my feelings and childhood experiences to the challenge.

I kept the chipboard simple in both cards by embossing the surfaces with clear embossing liquid, and coating with Stampendous CHUNKY GOLD DEEP IMPRESSION Embossing Enamel.  It adds a rich vintage gold to the chipboard.
