Hi friends! Justin Adkins from Just a Note by Justin here, and today I am sharing my last creation with the April 2024 Release! I have had so much fun going under the sea with y'all, and am excited that I have one last card to share!
There are so many fun Picket Fence Studios products that lend themselves perfectly to create shaker cards, and I wanted to do that with the You Octopi My Thoughts stamp set. Let's get into the details for how I put this card together!
Here is a list of Picket Fence Studios Products that I used to create my card:
I started off my card by grabbing a light orange piece of cardstock from my stash. I placed the Ocean Waves stencil over top, and blended with Saltwater Taffy and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks. I removed the stencil and distressed the edges with the Abandoned Coral ink. I splattered the panel with more Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink and let it dry. Once the panel was dried, I re-applied the Ocean Waves stencil to my panel, and applied a solid layer of Sea Glass Coral Paper Glaze Glass. I removed my stencil, placed my panel to the side to dry completely, and washed my stencil immediately.
While my panel was drying, I stamped out some of the images from You Octopi My Thoughts, colored it up with Copic Markers, and cut the images out with the coordinating dies.
During this time, I also went ahead and heat embossed the sentiment "hello there" from Swanky Sentiments: Salutations in white embossing powder on kraft cardstock. I cut out the sentiment with coordinating dies and then distressed the bottom edge with Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink.
After my panel had fully dried, I used the Scene Building A2 Rectangles One die to cut my panel to create multiple shaker windows. I took acetate, cut it down to slightly smaller than my card panel, and adhered it to the back of my panel with liquid adhesive. While the adhesive was drying, I adhered the little sea floor foliage bits that I colored up so that they peeked out from the die cut windows. I also adhered my octopus in the upper left corner of the card.
Using foam tape, I lined the 4 edges of the card. I took one of the panels from the Beach Combing A2 Fabulously Glossy Cardstock, poured some Tropical Breeze Sequins onto the panel, removed the backing of the foam tape, and then placed my shaker window panel on top of the Beach Combing panel.
To finish my card, I adhered my sentiment with foam tape and then adhered my entire unit onto an A2-sized card base. I was fully complete!
