Thanks for stopping by! Every Tuesday we feature items from the craft section of the store! Today I made a shaker card inspired by a beautiful Summer day!
I started by cutting the Fiori Plate layer C from pink card stock, and layer B from white card stock. I adhered the two layers together and placed a large acrylic block over them to keep pressure over them as the glue dried. The cover plates are sized perfectly for an A2 card (4.25 x 5.5″) Next to make the shaker…
I placed two ovals from the Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Oval Layers inside each other and cut them in my die cut machine to create a frame. Using the larger oval die I cut a piece of acetate and adhered on the reverse of the frame. Next I added adhesive foam tape to the reverse side of the frame. I usually leave an opening in the adhesive foam tape at the top of the frame. After I attach it to the card base I add sequins. Then I add a piece of adhesive foam tape to seal off the opening so my sequins don’t escape.
I added iridescent pink and clear sequins to the inside of the shaker. I love that you can still sett he beautiful stitching of the Fiori Plate layers inside the shaker window!
I stamped the floral and dragonfly images from the Dragonfly Greetings stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Copic alcohol markers.. I purposely left the brush strokes on the butterfly wings to add contrast and interest.
The Dragonfly Greetings is a beautiful stamp set with floral images, dragonflies, and simple sentiments. The coordinating die cuts make it easy to get a clean detailed cut with one pass through your die cut machine.
I hope you find time to make something beautiful today!
