Happy Friday everyone!!! Today I’m sharing a fun shaker card set down in the depths of the sea! This was really fun to put together and is even more fun to play with now that it’s finished. I love shaker cards but they don’t always cross my mind to make.
I started my card by die cutting the largest panel from the Trinity Stamps Slimline Stitched Panels and Windows set twice, then cut the window from one of them. I took the solid panel and blended Distress Oxides on it to show through the windows. I used Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers. Then I spritzed it with water and flicked InkOn3 liquid pixie dust for some shimmer.
Next I grabbed my stamp sets – Mermaid Wishes and Turtley Awesome – and inked them up. I colored them with my copics and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I took some of the scene building images like seashells, starfish, rocks and seaweed and glued them to the inked panel to show through the windows and set the rest of the images aside to build my shaker.
I glued acetate sheets to the inside of the window panel and lined it with doubled-up foam tape. Then I sprinkled some different embellishments into each scene area and closed it up. The embellishments I used were jellyfish jewels, glass slipper confetti and lovely heart itty bitty confetti. I thought it gave some shimmer and pops of color against the blue background.
Finally I added my final images to the front and stamped my sentiment as well. For finishing touches I added some glossy accents here and there and Stickles to the mermaid tail. The last thing I did was glue down some jellyfish jewels around the front of the card.
I think this card turned out so fun! Do you make shaker cards? Any tips or tricks to share? I’d love to hear. Leave me a comment if you have any.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
