Hello and welcome to my first blog
I belong a card swap group on Facebook and one of the challenges was to make a Shaker card. This was my second attempt of making a shaker card, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be, so I decided to make one to show you.
Materials I used:
- White card 6 x 6 inches
- Coloured Card.
- patterned card
- ink for stamping
- Embossing powder
- Glue stick
- Snail glue
- Glue dots
- Double sided sticky foam
- Sequins – to shake
- Embellishments – to put inside the flowers.
Tools I used:
- Stamping block.
- Sentiment stamps.
- Big shot die cutting machine Scissors
- Circle dies – for the window and border.
- Label die. and butterfly die.
- Heat gun.
- Brother CM 900 scan and cut.
- Cut the coloured card to 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches
- Cut the patterned card to 5 x 5 inches.
- Using the circle die for the window cut out a hole in the patterned card.
- Stick the coloured card to your 6 x 6 card
- On the reverse side of your patterned card, stick the acetate ensuring that there are no gaps around the edges.
- Place the patterned card over the coloured card to establish where the window will lie on your card – once you have identified where this will be stamp your sentiment.
- Cover with embossing powder then using your heat gun apply heat.
- Using the double sided foam tape (I applied it double thickness so that it could stand out further) on the reverse side of the patterned paper, place over the acetate in a square ensuring that the edges are flush with each other and and the tape is not visible through the window.
- Apply more foam tape around the edges of the reverse side of the patterned paper.
- Place your sequins over your sentiment – then very carefully stick the patterned card over the coloured card.
- I decorated the front with flowers that I had cut with my new Brother CM 900 scan and cut machine, a die cut butterfly, a die cut label with another sentiment and a bow ribbon.
