DT member Elaine here today sharing this fun, colourful shaker card. I cut a panel of white card stock and used my ‘All Prettied Up’ scallop frame to give a pretty edge and stitching detail around the outside.
I used my ‘Over the Rainbow’ die by MFT to cut my rainbow on some white card stock and then ink blended each piece in rainbow colours (picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, squeezed lemonade, cracked pistachio, tumbled glass and wilted violet). I used Lawn Fawn’s ‘Puffy Cloud’ dies and ‘Puffy Cloud Frames’ for the clouds. The unicorn was a free digital image but sadly no longer available (I’ve tried so hard to find the links). I coloured my unicorn with copic markers. Before I stamped my sentiment and adhered my unicorn I used Windsor & Newton Gold Ink to flick on some splatter. I then went ahead and stamped my sentiment from Avery Elle’s ‘Be a Unicorn’ in Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
I covered the back of the panel with some clear acetate, securing with double sided tape. Then I added one layer of foam tape all over the back, being sure not to get foam tape near my cloud openings. I filled the cloud wells with sequins – the smaller cloud is filled with ‘Mermaids Tail’ sequin mix (you can find this in the shop) and the larger cloud is filled with some chunky pink glitter and clear 4mm sequins from my stash. I covered the whole panel with another layer of clear acetate and then secured the whole shaker panel to a heavyweight card base.
I finished off the back of my card by stamping one of the adorably cute sentiments from the ‘Sealed with a Kiss‘ stamp set….I’m obsessed with these ‘Delivered by….’ stamps in this set.
