Hello my lovely friends, I have a fun shaker card to share today.
This one is made using goodies from Spellbinders kits. The papers and “Hello” sentiment acetate are from the June 2018 card kit and the heart die is from January 2018 Large die of the month kit.
I started by using the largest plain rectangle die and cut out a piece of the beautiful blue patterned paper with white lace design on top. On top of this, I arranged the hemstitch rectangle die but only partially cut it out so that the cut lines end when they touch the lace design.
After this, I die cut a heart using the heart die from Spellbinders January 2018 large die kit. On the back of this I added a transparent packaging material, made a well with foam tape and added Simon Says Stamp Moonshine sequins along with some opaque white sequins. On the back of this, I used some more packaging material to close the shaker.
Lately adding a transparent backing (mostly packaging material) on the back of shaker is my favorite trick to avoid dealing with spilled sequins etc. Once the shaker is completely built and sequins are secure inside, I can move it around and place it wherever I want.
Before I close the shaker, I use my powder tool and run it along the inside edges of my shaker well. This prevents any stray adhesive from being still ‘active’ and sticking sequins randomly to it and crowding in one place. I also use the powder tool on stickers if I am mounting them using foam adhesive and don’t want its own adhesive to stick anymore.
I mounted this piece with more foam tape on a blue top folding cardbase, sprinkled some more sequins around the heart and also adhered the sentiment “hello” on top. This one also came in the card kit.
Hope you do give some of these ideas a try and if you share your creations using some of ideas from here, I’d be thrilled if you could mention me.
