Card for Childrens Day

I am so very honored to be chosen as the guest designer this month for Paru's Card Making Challenge. Thank you very much, Paru!  The theme for this card is children because the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru is celebrated as Children's Day in India. India's first Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was born on November 14. Apart from being known for his skills as a statesman, Nehru was also immensely fond of children.

The card I created for Paru's Challenge is a shaker card.  I think children of all ages like shaker cards.  The wonderful sponsor that Paru has chosen for this month is MHK designs.
All of the digi images, sentiment and even the patterned papers are found at the MHK designs.  I used the "Hardy Party" digital paper pack and "Eat Your Cake" digital stamp set.

Making a shaker card is simpler that it may look.
  • I colored the image with Copic markers and added a touch of shimmer using a bit Multi Media Matte with clear glitter.    
  • I cut the frame 6 times, 5 times from plain cardstock and one time from the patterned paper.  The five cardstock frames are glued into a stack to create the well for the shaker mix.   
  • Place the stacked frame over the colored image where you like and trim off any excess.  Glue the frame over to the image using the Multi Media Matte. 
  • After the glue is dry you put in the sequin mix.  
  • Next you will cut a piece of plastic or acetate cut to size and adhere this over the window.  I like to use a strong double sided tape like SCOR-tape to adhere the acetate to the frame and the patterned paper.  It seems to work the best. 
  • Then adhere the assembled shaker to your card.  
I was have such a great time with the pretty papers from MHK that created two tags for the challenge.  After making both I couldn't really decide which I liked best so I am sharing both here.   Both of my tags use a die from Hero Arts.  I will list my supplies below.

I hope that you are inspired to join in the challenge this month to celebrate children.  
Thank you, for stopping by my blog.  Your comments, questions and suggestions are always welcome.
