I started with stamping the wreath image with a very light ink, as I wanted to avoid black lines for this card. I coloured the image with coloured pencils and fussy cut it with scissors.
I die cut out a panel out of white cardstock using largest die from DARLING RIBBON & FRAMES and ran it through my die cutting machine making with an embossing mat and a BRUSH STROKE WAVES STENCIL to do dry embossing. I like that it added just a little bit of texture to my card and didn’t overwhelm the background, as I wanted to keep the focus on the coloured image.
To make a shaker I needed to cut out a window in the wreath image and was pleased to discover that a circle die from DOTTED PATTERNS SET 1 matches perfectly!
Next, I used Studio Katia GLUE to adhere acetate to the back of the wreath image. I have been using it for shakers lately and love how well it adheres acetate to the paper. I filled the shaker with GOLD FOIL CONFETTI and GOLD CRYSTALS. I used GOLD FOIL CONFETTI to embellished my card a little as well.
All I needed now was a sentiment. I die cut it out of white and gold glitter cardstock and glued together a little off so that the white was visible under the gold and would give the word thanks a little bit of a shadow. I adhered the sentiment on top of the shaker window using Studio Katia GLUE, it is my favourite liquid glue!
Hope you enjoyed my card today. Have a wonderful weekend!
