This card kills fascists - Music at Crafting with Dragonflies

Our theme this fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies, chosen by teammate Jarka, is Music. I wanted to try something new-to-me, so I made a shaker card based on the tutorial(s) for a Guitar Card at SplitcoastStampers.

Although used the tips at SplitcoastStampers (especially for the bottom portion, using a label die was so perfect) I eyeballed the guitar curve & made my own template. To make space for the shaker portion, the middle guitar layer is made from cardboard I liberated from our recycling bin. The top is a CTMH cardstock, inked with Memento Sand chalk ink. I used a Sizzix embossing folder for the woodgrain patterns. The circle frame is cut from a hand-made type paper. The sentiment is from a Scrapper's Paradise set, and I filled the shaker with gold star confetti. I used metallic thread for the strings.

For the inside, I heat-embossed a Posh Impressions music-patterned rubber stamp & a StudioG "rock on" border in gold on a shiny black paper. The card base is a manila paper, and I hand-drew the border.
