Hello Crafty Friends - I am here with a simple shaker card featuring
one of April's New Release Sparkle Blends - Sunshine.
A bright, cheerful blend of lemony yellows,
chartreuse, white and transparent, iridescent butter shades.
You’ll want to use this blend on all of your happiest projects.
I created a slim shaker card.
Meaning I used several layers of paper instead of foam adhesive to create my shaker.
I didn't want to create a lot of bulk. I also didn't overfill my shaker.
Let's get started on how I did this.
First like always - I gathered my supplies. I stamped and colored my image. I die cut the sentiments a total of 7 times. 6x from white cardstock and 1x from specialty Gold paper. I also trimmed my pattern paper and cardstock card front panel along with some specialty purple cardstock.
After I have all the components together I start putting the card together. I layer the pattern paper onto the medium yellow cardstock card front panel. Then, I adhered purple cardstock in the center - however, you will notice in a bit I change my mind and move it.
I then start layering the sentiment and gluing the layers. making sure to sandwich the acetate/packing between layers. I did this because the sentiment is so thin and I wanted a thin shaker. I am showing you that the sentiment isn't very thick but it is very sturdy.
Next, I add a bit of the Sparkle Blends- Sunshine to the card front panel. I choose some of the gold pieces, mostly the yellow and the starburst looking ones. I notice that the larger butterfly is reading a bit orangy in the photo but trust me it's a beautiful iridescent yellow.
I adhered the shaker top to the Sparkle Blend and I moved the purple cardstock to the left a bit so that my girl could fit nicely on the right side.
That's it the card is complete. I did add a few highlights to the girl with a white gel pen.
