Hey Chick! How About This Springtime Card With a Shaker Tag?

Today's cards feature fresh flowers and adorable chicks, popping up just in time for springtime.  It's Day 2 of Impression Obsession's new release hop, and spring is definitely in the air! Plus, if you loved yesterday's shaker tag card, today I've got another shaker idea with sweet pastel sequins. Ready to chick it out?

Today's cards show two different ways to color these cute chickies. Love to paper-piece? This chick looks great trimmed from cardstock. Feel like coloring? Try watercolor, pencils, or markers to bring your chickies some color. 
In yesterday's post I shared directions for assembling the Shaker Tag die as a shaker. (You can totally use the pieces as regular tags too!) 
  • To make this shaker, cut the solid tag from pink cardstock, and acetate.
  • Then cut the window tag from white cardstock, and from white foam. (Or you can use thin strips of adhesive foam tape instead of a foam sheet.)
  • Assemble the tag from front to back - white window tag, acetate layer, then foam. Next, fill the open space with sequins, and seal it together with the solid white tag.
It's Day 2 of our blog hop and we're having so much fun sharing this month's new release at Impression Obsession! If you missed yesterday's post (with more shaker tag inspiration) check it out HERE.

Oh my gosh how fun and colorful these cute cards are with this chick set. I think I will have to put this on my wish list. I really love the repeated patterned one done with the chicks. Great job!
