Hi, it’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts on the SFL blog today! I used elements from the May 2020 Flavor of the Month kit to make this bright and cheery triple shaker card! The colors in the Weather Together collection just make me happy when I look at them! You can see a full process video on my card HERE.
I started out by using the Sunday Stamps sketch #56 for the basic layout of my card. It was a perfect layout to use the ribbon that came in the Weather Together collection of the kit. And, I decided to turn the 3 circle elements on the sketch into small shaker windows.
I chose the Blu Raspberry cardstock from the kit as my A2 size cardbase and the rainbow striped paper from the Weather Together collection (collection #3 in the kit) for my mat.
To make my shaker windows, I punched 1 inch circles from heavy duty white cardstock and then used a 1.5 inch scalloped circle punch to punch around the 1 inch circles to create my shaker frame. I repeated this 15 times (because I couldn’t seem to make foam work for these small frames🤦♀️)! I added the clear transparency circle (1.25 inch circle) under my top layer of the scalloped frame. Then I just used liquid glue to add the other 4 scalloped layers. This gave my frames some depth.
I wrapped one piece of the ribbon from the Weather Together collection around the bottom of my card mat and then the other down the left side so they overlapped. Then I adhered my card mat to the cardbase.
I punched 3 more of the scalloped circles to use as my shaker window base layer and adhered these on top of the vertical strip of ribbon. Then came the fun part of adding the sequins (and of course I added a few too many!).
I stamped the “You are awesome” sentiment from the Little Lady stamp set (from the Little Lady collection #4 from the kit), backed it with the turquoise side of one of the papers from the Weather Together collection. I decided to add it under the middle shaker window. Then I added some 1/2 inch punched circles from that same turquoise paper to the upper right hand corner of the card. I think it turned out very cheerful and would make a great encouragement or congratulations card!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed this bright and cheery project! If you have a tip for adding the dimension to tiny shaker frames, please let me know!!!!
