For the background, i cut out a few pieces of paper using the Basic Rectangles Creative Cuts. I ink blended on both please. For the front panel, I ink blended with a cloud stencil. For the shaker background, I ink blended with Distress Oxides for the back of the rainbow. I was inspired by Keeway‘s brilliant ink blending of Offset Rainbow. This way of coloring is quick yet gorgeous and really leans to making a card with a lot of impact but still relatively simple to do.
I prepared the back of my front panel by loading it with a lot of foam tape and built a well for the mini stars confetti I will be adding as my shaker bits. I trimmed down my rainbow background then peeled off the foam tape and adhered it by lining up the top left colors. And that’s it – the shaker element is finished.
To complete the front of the card, I cut out a piece of vellum and one piece of card stock with the cloud die from Mama Elephant Landscape Trio. I embossed the sentiment from an old Stamptember exclusive set because it was just too perfect for this card. Then, I adhered the vellum cloud onto my base with tape runner (Tip: I only taped the bottom that is hidden behind the white cloud piece so that the adhesive does not show through the vellum.) Lastly, I mounted some foam tape on the white cloud with the sentiment on top of the vellum.
To finish my card, I adhered my colored little fairies onto the card and my shaker card is finished! I hope I inspired you to add a little shaker fun in your crafty adventures soon! Thanks for stopping by.
