Today I am sharing with you my first successful Shaker Card... YEAH Me! They have always seemed very intimidating and I am sure there might be a better process out there, but this worked for me and I am really pleased with the finished look of the card!
Whip Cream Cardstock, Dahlia Burst Die, Dahlia Burst Stamp Set, Outrageous Pink Ink, Journey Sequins Pink World, Black Licorice Ribbon, Sentiment from Special Lady Stamp Set, Black Licorice Cardstock, Clear View Sheet
8.5x11 Piece of Black Cardstock cut down to a 5.5 x8.5 piece then folded in half for a 5.5 x 4.25 card
Whip Cream Cardstock Cut down to a 4x5 for interior of the card, left blank.
Whip Cream Cardstock for the card front 4x5.25 both pieces
Clear View Sheet cut two pieces at 3x3 from the 8.5x11 sheet
First I inked the sentiment in black licorice and stamped it on the card front, I positioned the die onto the cutting plate and die cute the flower from the whip cream cardstock using the Journey Platinum and the magnetic side of the plate.
Then I inked up the stamp using Outrageous Pink and lined the stamp up with the die cut to ensure I was going to be stamping the image in the correct place.
I used White Liner to adhere the first clear view sheet to the front of the card beneath the Dahlia Burst cut out.. I then took the 2nd clear view sheet and foam adhesive and placed it around the 4 sides of the 3x3 sheet.. Then I poured some of the sequins in the middle of the sheet, took the top piece with the cut out and clear view already attached and placed it onto the card front.
I then used my adhesive runner around the back of the 3x3 piece to adhere to the last card front piece with the stamped Dahlia Burst and lined it up.
I tied a double bow and added it to the card from for a little bit of pop..
I then used the runner adhesive on the back of this piece from corner to corner in an X and adhered it the the Black Licorice card base.. Voila card completed.. you could write a note or stamp another sentiment or greeting on the inside of the card or both!
