Hey everyone! I’m back again to share this great shaker card I’ve got over on the Pink & Main blog today. I recently picked up these sweet bees and the layered hexagon dies after being inspired by my friend Rachelle.
I started this card by pulling out my stamps and dies to lay things on a blank card base and see what I wanted to put where. Then I stamped the images out from BEE Day and colored them with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and moved on to creating my shaker mechanism.
For this I cut a piece of yellow Sweater Weather paper with the third largest hexagon twice and then again from acetate. Next I took the fourth hexagon die and cut it from the center of one of the yellow ones so I have a frame. I used scrappy tape to adhere the frame to the acetate window and added double-layered foam to the sides. I ran my anti-static bag around the inside and filled it with shaker bits, then sealed it up with the last hexagon. For the background I chose a piece of paper from the Thankful paper pad and cut it with the second largest layered rectangle die and adhered it to a card base with liquid glue. This gives a nice white border. I used my images and shaker to choose placement for my sentiment and stamped it down next.
I adhered my shaker mechanism with liquid glue an then the images with foam squares and liquid glue. Then I moved on to finishing touches.
I added glossy accents to the flags on the bee hive and bees eyes, along with the candle flame. Then I went in with star dust Stickles on the cupcake frosting, bow on one gift and topper on the cute hat.
Isn’t this card just too fun!?! I love these sweet bees and had a blast creating this shaker!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
