Alright! Let’s get to my card for today 🙂 I’m using some new products today alongside some old products to create a really cute scene and awesome shaker card. Here’s a look at the project.
Yup! That’s a volcano shaker card! My sister gave me the idea for this, and I’m happy to say it turned out just like we imagined. To start I stamped out some of the dinosaurs from the Dino Time stamp set along with the volcano from Geology Rocks. Everything was colored in with my Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I knew my colors were going to pinks and reds, so I tried to keep the dinos pretty neutral with only a hint of pink for some color.
Once that was done I started to make the scene for these cuties to be in. I started by taking an A2 size piece of white cardstock and die cutting the third largest rectangle from the Imperial Stitched Rectangle dies from it. Next, I took a heart die from my stash and die cut a V shape from the top of the inner rectangle I die cut. This was going to be for my shaker. On the outer frame I ink blended some Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink and spritzed it with water for the speckled look. Then I used the First Snow Stencil to create some hills on the inner rectangle with some Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink.
Once all that was done I started assembling my shaker. I was a little difficult to get the sequins right where I needed them, since my shaker window was so small and oddly shaped, but even with the fussing I had to do with it I still think it was worth it in the end. I used two layers of foam tape to add dimension and give enough space for the sequins I used to have room to move around. When that was all put together I could add my dinosaurs and volcano.
To finish off the card I heat embossed my sentiment on some black card stock with white embossing powder. I used the Strips of Ease die to cut out the sentiment and cut a banner in one end. I also added some white gel pen accents to the images, and then my card was complete!
