Iron Craft: Colorful Washi Shakers


Good Monday folks!  I'm popping in today to share my Iron Craft project!  Iron Craft  is the brainchild of Chaitali Narla who blogs over Cuts, Crops, and Creativity.  The basic premise is that two designers use the same ingredients (theme, color, products, etc) and see what happens!  A while back, Chaitali asked me to be one of the participants and here we are:)   

As our "ingredients", we used the same product, Avery Elle's rounded diamond dies...


And picked a theme of interactive cards!  For my card, I was inspired by my buddy Donna Mikasa who makes these adorable washi shaker cards (we like to refer to them as washakers, lol).  I adapted the technique to make little shakers!  I used my rounded diamond dies to cut clear card stock (transparencies), filled them up with sequins, and sealed the shaker pockets with washi tape.  The washi tape is very pliable and I was pleasantly surprised how well it worked even around the corners.  I finished the card off with a sentiment from the new Avery Elle set Oh Happy Day.  (The sequins are also from Avery Elle)  I love all the color and patterns of this card!  So cheery!


Thanks Chaitali for the invite (and for putting up with my chaotic schedule and craziness:)!  Hope it was fun!   

Thanks for stopping by!
    Mahalo and Aloha,
