Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog sharing this really fun shaker card featuring products from the July Birthday Release! Be sure to check it all out if you haven’t yet. It’s an amazing release and I absolutely love everything!
For today’s card, I knew I wanted to pair this sweet image with the Balloon Shaker dies so I stamped and colored him right away. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out and started cutting and assembling the pieces to my balloon shaker. The top frame and bottom layer are both cut from a piece of paper in the new Birthday Party paper pad that released last week. The shaker bits are just sequins from my stash and I used the stacked die cut technique to create my shaker well in stead of foam strips.
For the background, I inked up a white panel with distress oxide in blueprint sketch, salty ocean and tumbled glass. I spritzed it with water and blotted it dry. Then I added the Cloudy Sky stencil over the top and spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through it. I removed the stencil, cleaned up and waited for it to dry. Fast forward, to a heated up laminator and dry transfer gel – I cut a piece of white latte deco foil flock transfer the size of the panel, layered it on top of the stenciled panel, placed them in a Craft & Carrier sheet and ran it through my laminator.
I die cut the flocked panel with the largest Framework die. Then cut the smallest die in that set from black cardstock. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the Birthday Oval set in white on it.
To assemble my card, I cut an orange piece of patterned paper and added it to a white care base. Then I popped the stenciled panel up with foam tape and glued my shaker directly to that with liquid glue. I popped the mouse and sentiment up with foam squares.
For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to the mouse’s eye and glossy accents to his nose and the whole balloon.
