Hello there everyone! It's Theary here, back on the blog again. Today, I wanted to share a fun shaker card that I created using fantastic products from the shop. If you haven't checked out the latest release, you can do so here: October 2022 Release.
The background of this shaker card is just beautiful. And the best part is that it was super easy to make. It's so hard to capture the colors and sparkle on camera. But I can assure you that it's a showstopper!
I used Falling Snowflakes Stencil on top of white cardstock and my Life Changing Blender Brushes to blend a couple of shades of pink and purple ink. After I removed the stencil, I went in with the ink leftover on my brushes and blended it around the cardstock to create some interest.
I wanted the perfect sentiment for this shaker card, so I heat embossed in gold the Merry Christmas from the To All A Goodnight stamp set onto a heat-resistant acetate. Be sure to use a heat-resistant acetate, as a regular acetate will warp and burn. This sentiment is perfect to have in your holiday cardmaking stash. It's so whimsical, and the size is just perfect for any size card front.
I used a rectangle stitched frame in my stash to create the frame of my shaker card. You can pretty much use anything that you have on hand. I went ahead and ran that through my die-cutting machine a few times out of white cardstock and layered it with the heat-embossed acetate in between using liquid adhesive. This will create the shaker well for our shaker card.
Before I assembled the shaker card, I went ahead and cut the Snowflake Prism out of vellum. I adhered the vellum snowflake onto the center of the ink-blended background.
