White Daisies...

Happy Monday,

I love white on white and with this card I was able to add some texture as well as movement making a multilayer shaker card.

I stared by cutting the Gerbera Panel across a piece of ice white lustre card 4 times leaving a 1/2" gap between each die cut.  I added acetate behind this then added foam tape around each panel giving me 4 individual troughs.  I then filled each one with white micro beads and added a backing off the white card to seel.

I added Gerbera daisies cut in the same card and using 2 of each size I made 6 flowers and arranged them arround the central circle.  For the centre I cut the 2 circular dies in the Gerbera Circle die set and added the sentiment from the same set in the centre.

Fo added interest I placed the 2 largest dragonflies one in each opposing corner.

To finish I added an embossed layer and more layers of the Ice White.  White pearls in the centres of all the flowers finishes the card.

  10. Hi John. Nice idea with the different shaker sections, but all the added decorations are a bit too much for me as I think they make the design look a bit muddled - sorry.

  19. Hello John,
    I’ve never made a shaker card in my life! How boring is that! I don’t intend making one either!
    However , I ‘d make today’s card in a heartbeat - it just wouldn’t be a shaker card! Just call me odd!
    Glad you had a good weekend!
    Love Myra xx
