Wild at heart shaker card

Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a card I was asked to make by a friend for her daughter. The theme I was given was foxes.

I do enjoy making shaker cards so that seemed a good choice for an 8 yr old. I used Trimcraft First Edition Wild at Heart papers. Like all First Edition pads, this one has some beautiful embossed papers.

Once I'd put together the shaker card, I added some die cut bunting with some twine. I then used elements from Docrafts Tales of Wilson Wood collection- a sticker (which I backed onto a circle of paper), ribbon bow and a fabulous little wooden peg (I couldn't resist that one).

Both my friend and her daughter were really pleased with the card and I love it too.

Thanks for visiting and for all of your lovely comments x
