Hey Everybody, Ilda here, and I am back with a wedding themed card today. This time it is for a Save the Date Invitation See Through Window Shaker. I think this would also make a great destination wedding card idea.
To begin, I lined up the beige cardstock piece with the card base then ran them both through the die cut machine using the SHAKER HEART DIE to ensure the heart windows line up. I then used the same die to die cut the gold heart frame that will be glued on later. To the edge of the beige panel, I added the scalloped edge by die cutting the piece using the outer frame from the SCALLOP HEARTS COVER.
Next, I added a piece of ACETATE behind the heart opening and glued the gold heart to the edge of the window. I then flipped over the piece and created a foam tape well around the heart to fill with the sequins and shaker bits (see supplies listed below). Then cut another piece of acetate to lock in all my shaker pieces. Next, I added foam tape to the backside of the shaker panel, removed the protective backing from the foam tape and lined it up to the opening of the card base and glued it in place using the heart window to make sure it all lined up properly.
I then stamped out the stars from the STAR DATE set and embossed them in gold embossing powder and die cute them with the coordinating STAR DATE Dies. I then stamped in their little faces and colored them in using Zig markers and also added glossy accents details for a little shine. For fun and even more shine, I added the IRIDESCENT BUBBLES to the front of the card.
On the inside of the card, right where the window opens I blended out the sun rays using the UNDERWATER SUN RAYS stencil and then just used some masking tape to blend out the sand and the ocean. Lastly, I stamped out the save the date sentiment.
I hope you got some inspiration from this Save The Date See Through Window Shaker. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
It’s a awesome card Ilda. I love the sweet colours and the stars are so asorable. Thank you so much for this awesome inspirataion.
