The shaker card seems to be all the rage at the moment. I think they are rather sweet so I decided to make one with Stampotique stamps:
I started with a piece of white card stock, slightly smaller than the card front. I put a Tim Holz stencil on it and dabbed a Versamark ink pad on it. I then sprinkled clear embossing powder on the card panel and heat set it. Over the top of that I used a blending tool and 3 shades of blue Distress Inks. I think this is such a cool effect.... I also dripped some water on to get some lighter spots.
It was then ready to have the window cut out and I used a die for this. Next I took another piece of white card stock the same size and marked the die cut hole on it. This was my guide for the stamping. I started with 'Proof of fun' which is part of the 'Barcode Text' stamp and then used my home made (by hubby) stamp positioner to put 'Goat Monster' on top. I then coloured him with Copic Markers.Next I cut some acetate and glued it on the back of the die cut hole. Now it was time to build the actual shaker bit. With foam tape I made a little 'wall' around the window; I used two layers. I also put two layers of the same tape around the edge of the card. Before I did the long sides I wrapped the twine around. I filled the space where the window is with sequins and seed beads. I then put both card panels together. This whole thing was then adhered to the card. The last thing I did was make the bow. I just wrapped some twine around my hand, secured it in the middle by tying it to the twine underneath. A dab of glue was put under it to make sure it doesn't move..
Thanks for stopping by !
