Hi crafty friends! Kim here from Cardmaking Blonde with a fairy fun shaker card to show off SFL’s new release! (Sorry I couldn’t help myself.) Shaker cards are fun, versatile and add a little something out of your ordinary everyday card. Over the years I have watched many videos of how to make them, different methods and tricks. Every time I sit down to make a shaker card I feel like I’m learning for the first time. I will say this card might be the one I had the least amount of trouble with but please note the trouble is mine not in the technique itself. It’s actually a very simple process I just struggle with it for some strange reason. I have to take each step slowly so that I don’t glue the wrong pieces together. I was so happy with the way it turned out!
Here’s a quick run down of what I did:
- stamped sentiment on the clear acetate sheet (after hitting it with an Embossing Magic Pad so the embossing powder wouldn’t cling where I didn’t want it to) with VersaFine black onyx ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder
- the image from Winter Fairies by SFLwas stamped with Memento black ink then was colored with Prismacolor pencils & maybe Derwent inktense pencils (I keep them in the same case and when I’m coloring I am usually just looking for the right color not which brand)
- fussy cutted out the image and then went around the edges with a Memento marker in black ink (gives it a finished look even if your edges are a little rough)
- blinged it up a little with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen on the moon, her hat and wings (not sure you’ll be able to see it though)
- the sequins are from my stash and went perfectly with the paper I was using from the Winter in Pink 6×6 paper pad from SFL
- used Couture Creations 3D Foam Strips-white to create the shaker space (these worked like a dream! and I credit them for making the process much smoother for me this go round)
- used a scallop circle frame die to create the shaker window
