Happy Friday Friends!
To start on my background, I used MISTI to position the the stripes, I’ve placed 4 stripes close together used versamark ink and gold embossing powder. Then i turned the card base around and stamped the other portion of the base. I’ve repeated this for both cards. It’s really easy and fast if you need to create lots of cards.
For my first card I used a dotted doily circle die to cut the shaker window and I also heat embossed the thin border in gold embossing to create a more finished look. I couldn’t find any clear acetate therefore I used vellum for both cards instead. I really like the look of vellum in shaker cards. Especially for Holiday Cards it creates this frosted look. Filled the shaker with Gold Foil Fusion, Gold Foil Stars and I thought it needed a little bit of silver so I’ve added 3MM Silver Foil Sequins and Silver Dust Seed Beads for shaker noise. Since my window is so large, I only used one layer of foam tape so my sequins don’t move as much. For my next card, I cut the shaker window using the dotted square and die cut the stripe base with largest frame from Dotted Patterns Set 1. Originally I was planning to adhere it to the white card base but then I thought there was too much white and decided to use the same red cardstock. I trimmed down it a little bit to have a thin white board around the edges. I used the same filling for the shaker as the first card.
To finish of both cards, I die cut the sentiments from silver glitter cardstock Joy and Merry and added a few Silver Foil Crystals. Once I added the Merry sentiment to the first card I thought it needed Christmas sentiment, I used Christmas from Pink Winter stamp set and heat embossed it in silver. It’s really hard to see in silver perhaps I should have used white heat embossing.
Thank You for stopping by have a great weekend!
