Rare Oddities

My mom gifted me with some sheets of Graphic45's funky & lovely "Rare Oddities" collection, and I've been planning on making a gatefold card with it. I was finally inspired to do so by this week's free Cricut Craftroom cartridge, Chemistry Icons, and ended up adding a shaker to the card.

If you're familiar with this paper collection, you'll notice the little elements I paper-pieced and the color I added to the front text with gel pens. I also added some Candi to the corners.

Here's the card closed:

...right side opened:

...and fully open. I used gold & teal microbeads to fill the shaker portion behind the chemistry set.
