Underwater Shaker Card

Andrea Shell Beachcombing A2 Fabulous Glossy Card Fronts Copics Shaker card You Octopi My Thoughts

Hi there! It's Andrea back to share a shaker card featuring the new You Octopi My Thoughts stamp set. I love the ocean theme of the April release! Is anyone else itching to head to the beach now?!

I started by stamping the octopus from You Octopi My Thoughts with Black Hybrid Ink. I colored him with Copics, added some white details with a gel pen, and cut him out with the coordinating dies.

The foliage is from the Layering Flora: Leaves and Twigs Dies. I diecut a few shapes from white cardstock and then placed the diecuts onto the 4"x4" Paper Inking Palette. Using the Rainbow Pint-Sized Paper Pouncers, I "colored" the diecuts with distress inks.

I wanted to make a porthole style shaker, so I diecut the 3.0" Connected Circles Shaker Dies five times from white cardstock and once from metallic paper. I layered the white diecuts together and backed the silver one with acetate before gluing it on top of the white diecuts. I glued the octopus and foliage to one of the Beachcombing Fabulous Glossy A2 Card Fronts, added some Iridescent Moonshine sequins, and sealed them in place with the stacked diecuts. I trimmed around the shaker to remove the excess from the patterned paper and foliage.

I stamped a sentiment from You Octopi My Thoughts in black onto an A2 card. I attached my shaker with double-sided adhesive and glued silver pearls to the silver frame to complete the porthole.

Thanks for stopping by!
