Fairy Shaker card

Good Morning everyone.

Thank you for all your amazing comments on my memo block last week.   Today im sharing a shaker card made with the fairy in the jar die.  Do you remember my fairy suncatchers? Well i made this fairy at the same time, i coloured the back of the acetate with alcohol inks in sunset colours and have now made it into a card. 
 I added the words ' Leave a little sparkle whereever you go' which is similar to my cats life motto of 'leave a little fur whereever you go'๐Ÿ˜Š

7x7 scalloped cardbase.  I first die cut my jarred fairy from black card and backed with acetate, i then coloured the acetate with alcohol inks.  I die cut several more of the fairy die from black card and cut out the fairy so i just had the outside jar, i glued these together to make a little stack, i then used this instead of shaker tape and glued to the back of the acetate - as the outline of the die is so thin it would have been hard work trying to stick foam around it.  I then filled it with micro beads and glitter and backed with white card. 

I matted a piece of patterned paper onto black card and then the cardbase.  I added a strip of black dotty paper across the bottom to 'stand' my jar on.  I then die cut lots of those little left over scraps of paper into ivy and little butterflies and arranged them around my jar after inking the edges of the ivy.    

Close up on the fairy. I paper pieced the flower on the jar with scraps of glitter card & I added glitter glue to her wings to add more sparkle  Once again i don't recommend capturing your fairies in jars, this lady is free to come and go as she likes๐Ÿ˜
