Rain Shaker Maze Card


What on earth is a rain shaker maze? I’m not too sure either, but I think I just invented one!

Rain Shaker Maze Card

This card is one of those I needed to do as soon as I saw the Petal Plate die from Avery Elle. Some dies just scream out to me to try something with them! I had to test out a bunch of different beads for this – and these teensy ones from Judikins were just the right size to flow nicely! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

There are other intricate background dies that could work…if you try one, please please let me know and link me to your project. I’m dying to see if *anyone* would be silly enough to give this one a try! LOL!
