Jar Shaker Card and a Blogaversay Hop

Welcome to the 3 Year Celebration for
Georgiana at Carson's Creations. 
 If you've come from Lee-Ann's blog at Lee Scraps  you are in the right place! If you just came across the hop, please start at the beginning over at Carson's Creations.

 Okay, time for my project:
I created this Jar Shaker Card using Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm stamp set and matching die cut set. I was totally inspired by Chari Moss of the Lawn Fawn Design Team to make this card and followed her basic directions but tweeked it to work for Georgiana's challenge of threes for her blogaversary.
See Chari's YouTube tutorial here.

My card measures 4 1/4"x 5 1/2" (standard A2) portrait style card. All the paper is from Creative Imaginations 6x6 "Brights" paper collection.
Simply Brights 6x6 in Scrapbooking Paper Pad 36 Sheets Creative Imaginations NEW
I used the blue swirl, the orange swirl and the green swirl (3 patterned papers). I inked all the edges with black memento ink.

The black cardstock layer measures 4" x 5 1/4", the blue swirl paper measures 3 3/4" x 5". Then I cut 1/2" pieces from the green and orange swirl paper and cut the banners at the ends. I then stamped the sentiments using a couple "Scrappy Mom's" stamps. I glued it across the card and then die-cut the jar shape out of the assembled card front.

I set the assembled and die-cut card front on top of the white card base and used the Summertime Charm stamps to stamp the jar directly on the base. Then, I stamped 3 lightening bugs and their matching "shine" stamp and colored in the bugs (adding stickles to the rear ends). I then cut a layer of craft foam to match the front, and then used the matching jar die-cut to create the layer of foam necessary to make this card into a shaker card. I stamped, colored and die-cut extra lightening bugs to "fly" around the inside of the shaker card with the micro beads I used. 

Before assembling the shaker card, I added the three black button brads to the card front. Then using score tape, I assembled the card in this order:
card base -- die-cut craft foam --add the micro beads and bugs -- attach a piece of transparency (or recycled clear plastic packaging) to the back of the card front -- attach the card front to the card base.

Lastly, I added three escaped lightening bugs to the top of the card. LOVE them! :)

Did you keep count?? Here are the "three"s in my project:
3 patterned papers, 3 sentiment banners, 3 sentiment stamps, 3 lightening bugs stamped in the jar, 3 lightening bugs loose in the jar, 3 buttons and 3 escaped lightening bugs. :)
