Oh, Shaker cards give me the willys!! I have such a hard time with them, but I still gave it a shot this week at . It took me THREE hours to finish this card, but all in all I am quite happy with it.

Gear Paper - Single sheet rack at Michael's
Sentiment - Stamped with Stazon ink using an old rubber stamp
Embossing - Cuttlebug "Gears" folder
Black Frame - Cricut cartridge image cut on Explore
I added two metal" gears" by Bead Landing from Michael's, couple of BB-like balls, silver and black metallic stars. To the scalloped circle I adhered some snaps (kind used on clothing), I don't have very many shaker items for a male shaker card. Sorry the card is crooked, trying to take photo at night and had to use a flash. Too much refection from the acetate.

Thank you for following TurtleBug's Trail!
