I love a shaker card!
The first thing I saw with this new stamp set, Accented Blooms, was a window.
I was initially going to just make a recessed greeting but it turned into
sparkly shaker window instead.

BTW, when you mount this stamp set and punch out the middle piece, SAVE it!
You can use it like a shadow stamp!

I started with a 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ Thick Whisper White card stock and added color with my Stampin’ Blends markers. That smaller size helps me get in there to punch out the middle tag area.

To create the shaker part, I added a clear acetate Window Sheet first with a little snail adhesive tape. Next I used my Stampin’ Up Foam Adhesive Strips.
I cut tiny snips at the tight curves.

I added more strips around the edges and added my sequins.
After taking the paper off the strips, I add ONE MORE acetate window sheet.  Most people will add their paper or card stock on top of the window. I like to add one more acetate sheet so I can have better control of the window placement
when it comes time to put it on the card.

I tried so many colors of card stock for the greeting inside my window!  In the end I chose to stamp on the back of a new designer paper, Garden Impressions.

(good thing no one sees what the ugly side looks like, right?)

If you have the Tailored Tag Punch already, this stamp set is a must-get-now set.  The flowers can be stamped in a solid ink for quick and easy or you can enjoy adding color with markers, blends or watercolor.  The punch-able greetings are nice, too!

Here is the coordinating Tailored Tag punch if you don’t have it yet: Item # 145667   $18

 Overall, I liked how it came out!  The paper in the window looks a little dark in the photo but it’s just my lighting trying to get out the glare from the acetate!

Here are some alternate ideas from the SU home office using this duo:
