Hello friends! Today is the last day of stamp highlights for the Mama Elephant April release and we are sharing Mini Everyday Messages with you. This is a super versatile sentiments stamp set that you can use with cards, tags, and other paper projects. Today, I made a shaker card paired with the circular grid die to show how these little sentiments fit inside!
I decided to use the elephant holding a sign from Big News as well as a few animals from Stackable Cuties on my card today. I thought it would be so funny to make a shaker card and use the “shake me” sentiment from Mini Everyday Messages to give the recipient instructions on what to do with a shaker card. I colored everything with Copic markers and set aside after die cutting them.
For the shaker, I die cut the Circular Grid CC twice – once on a panel I ink blended with Distress Oxide in Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio, and a second time onto a piece of fun foam. Next, I lined up my ink blended panel to the card base so I know where to stamp all my sentiments from Mini Everday Messages. I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I then ink blended under each of the sentiments with Dried Marigold Distress Oxide just to give it a little depth.
I assembled my shaker card by added a piece of acetate behind the grid, then gluing the fun foam piece on. Next I fill the wells with mini star confetti and closed it up by adhering the base to the shaker component.
To finish my card, I popped each of my colored images onto the shaker card with foam tape. That’s it, my card is done and such a fun birthday card, if I do say so myself.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team and see what they made today!
