It’s been a little while since I shared a shaker card but when I saw that Doodles Paper Playground were having a Birthday giveaway and contest I decided it was the perfect opportunity to share one to join in the fun #showmeyourshaker.
I immediately though of my cloud dies from Honey Bee stamps and some unicorns would be perfect for a shaker. This is how I made the card.
I started by cutting a card panel from Neenah 80lb to 4 and 1/4 by 5 and a 1/2 inches. I also cut 2 pieces of fun foam to the same size.
I placed 3 of the cloud dies from the Honey Bee Stamps set ‘Partly Cloudy’ on to my piece of card. Once I was happy with the placement I ran it through my Big Shot die cutting machine.
Next I used Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade to add some colour to the card panel. I then used a Distress sprayer to spritz the panel with water and used a price of kitchen towel to soak up any excess.
I stamped out some images from The My Favourite Things stanp set Magical Unicorns and coloured them using Copic markers. I used my Scan n Cut to them out.
I stamped a sentiment from the MFT set and I adhered the images to the panel.
Next I worked on the shaker element. I adhered the 2 pieces of fun foam together. I then lined up the clouds from the front panel and cut 3 sections out of the fun foam that were slightly larger than the clouds.
I took a piece of acetate and adhered it to the back of the front card panel and adhered the fun foam panel on top of the acetate. Once the glue was dry I filled each of the cloud holes with sequins.
I took a card base and used the Distress inks to blend ink where the clouds would sit. Once this was day I brushed over the area with an anti static powder tool.
To complete the card I adhered the card base on top of the fun foam.
Thanks for dropping by.
