Rough & Tumble Shaker Card with Cathy!

Hi Samantha Walker fans, Cathy here today and I have a fun shaker card full of sequins to share with you today.  I used Samantha's Carta Bella collection Rough & Tumble!  It's such a fun collection to work with plus I love the texture and weight of Carta Bella's Paper. 


I used Samantha's Cloud with Swirls file to create my card.  Just click on the photo below and it will take you right to the file on the Silhouette Online Store.


 My card base is an A2 with the score at the top, it is just plain white card stock. I cut the cloud out of Salt Dotted Swiss Card Stock and the swirl from the Carta Bella paper.
First, resize the cloud to what you see here.  

 Ungroup the pieces as shown here.  I then added the rectangle around my cloud so that I had the perfect size for my A2 card.  The rectangle is 5x4.  I just eyeballed centering the cloud.

While you Silhouette is busy cutting those pieces, cut a 4 1/8 x 5 1/8 piece of red card stock from the Carta Bella paper and a 4x5 piece of your choice of Carta Bella paper for what you see inside your cloud.  I used a clear bag that some brads had been packaged in for the clear window.  I just simply cut it down to 3 3/4 x 4 1/2.

 I adhered the clear plastic to the back side of the Bazzill with scor-tape on 3 sides. Make sure to leave one side open to add your sequins.  

 Next, adhere the piece that will show through the window and fill with sequins.  I added a bunch.  Then just seal of the opening with a bit more score tape.  Mount this piece to the red Carta Bella card stock and then to your card base.  

Finish, your card by adhering the swirl for the cloud with a glue pen and then embellish with Rough & Tumble chipboard, stickers and enamel dots.  Your card is now ready for shaking!


I have one more quick card to share with you that I created from the what I had left over and using the same cloud file and adding one of the star bursts from Samantha's 4 star burst file. Again, just click on the file photo and it will take you right to the file at the Silhouette Online store.
