Hello and welcome to my third and last day as a guest designer on the My Favorite Things Blog. I’ve enjoyed sharing my MFT projects and I want to thank MFT for inviting me to be a guest. Today I’m sharing a couple of fun shaker cards.
For my first card I used some pretty paper from the Plaid Patterns Paper Pack. I diecut a window in the plaid paper using the Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Circle Windows. I stamped the sentiment with Licorice Black Hybrid Ink and cut out the sentiment with the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX. I used the Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames to cut a white frame and adhered the sentiment and frame on top of the plaid paper. I glued a piece of acetate behind the window opening. I cut a piece of foam the size of my card front and used the Die-namics Stitched Circle STAX to cut a window opening in the foam. I adhered the foam to my card base and added some Pretty Pink Posh Summer Mix Sequins in the window opening. Then I adhered the plaid paper onto the foam, creating the shaker window.
I used Black Licorice Hybrid Ink to stamp a sweet elephant and two balloons from the BB Adorable Elephants stamp set. I colored them with copics and then diecut them with the Die-namics BB Adorable Elephants. I used a black glaze pen on the elephant eyes and then added some white highlight dots to the balloons. I adhered the balloons and elephants to finish the card.
For my second card, I used the cute squirrel and acorns from the Forest Friends stamp set. I decided to use acorns (instead of sequins) to make this shaker card.
I stamped the squirrel and lots of acorns using the Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and colored everything with copics. I diecut them using the Die-namics Forest Friends. I stamped the sentiment and diecut it using the Die-namics Sentiment Strips. I used the Die-namics Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX to cut paper from the Homespun Gingham Paper Pack. I used the Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Wonky Windows to cut a white cardstock frame, the acetate window, and a piece of foam. I adhered the foam to the card front, added the acorn “shakers” and then adhered both the acetate and white window frame. I used foam dots to adhere the squirrel and sentiment strip to the card. Then I used a black glaze pen on the squirrel’s eye and nose to finish my card.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
