The first couple of years after I started card-making I had to try every new technique and trend. I was a very regular visitor at my local craft shops
they must have seen me coming and got sucked into buying things that with hind-sight I really shouldn't have.
Spirelli, decoupage, accordian cards, iris-folding, tea-bag folding, one of those Fiskars shape-cutters that everyone else hated too.
And shaker cards.
I really liked the idea of shaker cards but mine always looked a bit boring: they were okay when being shaken but the rest of the time (ie 99% of the time) they were just sad.
The other day I got it into my head that I should have another go at shaker cards, no idea why, I must have been ill.
So I gave it a go but hopefully have now got it out of my system and won't attempt another one for the next decade or so.
