For the Green Color Dare Challenge
This week, I am bringing you a little inspiration for the Color Dare Challenge and gifting you with Cricut video tutorial to show you how I made today’s project. Before I show you my Rainy Day Shaker card, I want to remind you how to join this week’s color challenge.

Like the grass in my backyard, this challenge is all green. With the rain we have been having lately, my “desert” home looks more like something from the northwestern states. Each day the clouds roll in, and I am happy to see the rain come down. That is what inspired me to create this Rainy Day Shaker card.
Although it is very hard to see in the photo, this card has quite a bit of green on and in it. The design started out with a card image I found in the Artfully Sent Cricut collection. In my tutorial, I show you how I used the Slice Tool♥ to turn the front of this card into a shaker frame.
Once the images had been cut out, I stamped a sentiment onto the front of the card using Evergreen ink. The sentiment is from another one of my favorite stamp sets in the May/June catalog – A Million Little Things. I can’t wait to show you the other cards I make with this one.
I chose to use vellum instead to acetate to represent the clouds that lay low♥ in my yard each morning after a rain storm. It’s hard to see in the photo, but there is some green plaid paper and Julep sequins hanging out behind that opaque vellum.
The plaid paper is from our new Aurora collection. This collection has an outdoorsy feel and is the perfect complement to this rainy day card. I like how subtle and soft it all feels – just like the morning fog.
For those who would like to make a Rainy Day Shaker card of their own, I have created a simple Cricut Tutorial & Process Video. This video will walk you through creating the card in Cricut Design Space and assembling it afterwards.
I hope that today’s project inspired you to take another look at the Artfully Sent Cricut collection and create a shaker card of your own. We would love for you to share that creation with us at the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge blog.
