For my project I wanted to create a fun shaker card. I've never made one before and since I always have so much trouble with those lovely mica fragments going everywhere, I thought they would best be contained for this project. 

I started by stamping with VersaMagic and embossing with a white embossing powder. I then rubbed some Radiant Neon inks over top and rubbed the excess off with a paper towel. 

Next I filled a little clear cello bag with some mica fragments and taped it to the inside. I stamped a sentiment on the inside of the card. 

Thanks for joining us today!
