Newton’s Nook – Frankly, You’re the Best!

Hey friends! Super excited to be on the Newton’s Nook blog today with an adorable flat shaker card to share! I used the Halloween release goodies – Franken-Newton and Spiderweb Oval stamps and had a blast creating with it!

I started by creating my shaker mechanism layers using the Oval Frames dies. I inked a panel with salvaged patina distress oxide ink and cut it with the largest scalloped oval with it. I inked up just the edge with black soot distress oxide ink and used the next size down oval to cut a window in it. Then I cut another full scalloped oval from acetate and white cardstock. I heat embossed the Spiderweb Oval on the acetate and inked the center of the white one with hickory smoke distress oxide ink.

Next, I took an A2 piece of white cardstock and the back layer of the shaker and splattered them both with black paint. I set them aside to dry while I stamped and colored all of my images from Franken-Newton. I stamped all of the small images in the set twice to be my shaker pieces. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out and started assembling the layers.

I used 1/8″ scrappy tape to adhere the frame to the spiderweb, added my images and luscious lime star confetti to the back oval before sealing the shaker up the same way. I used a small circle from the Circle Frames dies to stamp and heat emboss my sentiment on and layered my card together.

First, the splattered panel was added to a card base with liquid glue. Then the shaker was added with foam tape and the sentiment with Franken-Newton were also added with foam squares. For finishing touches I added twine to the top of the card, white gel pen highlights and just a bit of glossy accents to Newton in various places.
