I stamped the Doodle Flowers bouquet, several flower tops, Stems and leaves onto alcohol friendly paper using Memento Ink. I also stamped extra stems and leaves with Tim holtz Distress Oxide ink - Forest Moss. Then, colored them with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I then fussy cut out the flowers and stems.
Now, I am ready to assemble my card. I start by sponging a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Broken China onto a scrap piece of paper large enough to fit the back of the jar. Then, I cut a small slit in the top of the vellum jar. Now, on the back of the vellum jar I use some foam adhesive around the edge - (creating a shaker card) I then, placed a few gold sequins onto the inked paper and placed vellum jar on top of the inked paper. creating a shaker. trimmed away excess paper if needed.
Next, I insert the bouquet flowers & leaves into the jar arranging them & gluing them into place. Set aside. Now, I cut two pieces of washi tape one in a solid gold and another with hearts, I layer them towards the bottom of my card cutting the end in an angle. Then, I adhere the Vellum Shaker Jar with Flowers on top of the washi tape trying my best to center it.
Now, I arrange the remaining flower tops and stems at the base of the jar. Making sure to tuck in a few leaves. I set my card as side to dry while I work on my sentiment. I start stacking and gluing the layers of the die cut words making sure the line them up. I place a few acrylic block on top of them while the dry. Once the die cut words are dry I adhere them to my card. Again, placing some acrylic block on top to set them in place. For some finishing touches I add a few Nuvo Drops in Pale Gold to the centers of the Flowers.
