Hi everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am back with an easy to mail slimline shaker card! Make sure to also check out the video at the end of the post for a step by step tutorial!
For the base of my card today I used the new Dotted Slimline Set 1 dies. I used them to cut both the base and the window of my shaker and I then ink blended the shaker background with Distress Oxides.
I used Speckled Egg, Milled Lavender and Dried Marigold and then spritzed everything with my Dylusions Shimmer Spray, for some extra sparkle. To create some dimension in my shaker, I die cut three sheets of heavyweight white cardstock to be the same as the shaker front. I layered them together and filled the shaker with a mix of chunky glitter and confetti.
Layering cardstock rather than using foam tape will keep the shaker a bit flatter, so that it is easier to mail.
For my images today I used the Aloha stamp set, that I colored with Illustrator Makers. Here is a list of markers I used:
Hibiscus: GY2, BO1, OR1, OR3, DR4
Leaves 1: JG7, JG4, JG2, JG1
Leaves 2: JG7, AG4, AG3, AG1
Leaves 3: LG5, LG3, LG1
Once I was done coloring, I die cut everything with the Aloha Coordinating Dies.
Here is also a video tutorial for you, sharing the step by step process for this Slimline Shaker Card!
Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!
