I have been into shaker cards lately!  I made one almost a year ago and didn't do another one until very recently; now I seem to be addicted!

Anyway, this design made for a fun graduation card.  I found the cap in DS from Spring Holiday.  I copy pasted and did some slicing to make a duplicate shape minus the tassel.  I downsized it and sliced that shape inside the original cap to give me a window.

I filled my space with red sequins and silver stars from Spare Parts and then sprinkled in some Bead Basics Bead Seeds (found in the jewelry making section of the crafts).

My background was embossed with a paisley folder and rubbed over with Cranberry ink.

I finished it off with some CTMH Gems and Shimmer Tape; the sentiment is from the CTMH Just to Say stamp set.

My card is off to Sentimental Sundays where the theme is You Did It / Graduation.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make yourself at home here and feel free to browse other posts and comment/ask questions if you like!
