Good morning! Ardyth here with a fun, edgeless shaker card using the stencil.
I started by gathering my supplies: the stencil, 5 ink colours, and 5 circle masks cut from sticky notes (one for each colour).
I used sponge daubers and the masks to blend ink into the circular shapes on the stencil. I tried to make sure that they were spaced out randomly over the panel of white cardstock.
I worked through all 5 colours, and left some areas white for some breathing space.
I added texture by spritzing the panel with water and lifting the colour with a paper towel.
I trimmed the panel into 2 pieces and flipped it over on my work surface. I cut a piece of acetate so that it was wider than my panel so I can create flaps.
I scored the acetate twice on each end, about 1/8 inch apart, and about an inch from the end.
I glued the acetate to the panel pieces – here you can see the 1/8 inch ‘walls’ and the flaps.
I added strips of doubled-up foam tape to create the rest of the walls, and to support the panel.
I filled the shaker area with gems and removed the release paper from the foam tape. I left the flaps standing up for the next step.
I placed a white panel of cardstock over the back, and then glued the acetate flaps down .
I attached the shaker panel to a white cardbase, and added the Big Sugar Script Hello die, cut from black cardstock.
Here’s how the edge of the shaker looks.
And of course, I made a second card using the leftover ink from the stencil.
An edgeless shaker has big wow factor, but it’s easier than it looks – I hope you’ll give it a try!
