Newton’s Nook – June Release Day 2

Here we are again! It’s time for day 2 of reveals for the Newton’s Nook June release! Today we have another addition to the newest full card front series – ovals!

Flamingo Oval

I love how you can used this with the oval frames dies or on it’s own to fill up your card front. This time, I created an oval shaped card and turned it into a shaker too! This was really fun to make and I love playing with it!

First, I die cut the largest scalloped oval from white cardstock and lined up my stamp within the stitching lines. This is the easiest way for me to make sure I have enough edge for the scallop. I used my copics and colored the whole panel in, then chose a sentiment to stamp in the center.

Then I cut another of the same scallop from orange cardstock but used the next smallest oval to cut a window out of it. I inked up the edges with my blending brush, then added liquid glue to add an acetate window to the back side. I lined the oval frame with foam strips, filled my shaker well and added the colored panel to the back to seal it all up.

Finally, I cut the largest oval twice – once from the pink stripe in the Summertime paper pad we saw yesterday and once from white cardstock. I added a score line about 1/2 inch from one of the long side and adhered the two with scrappy tape only on this flap. That created the shaped card base. Last, I used liquid glue to add the shaker mechanism to the top.

Voila! The card is all finished and ready to play with. Isn’t it so fun!
