Two-Tone Flora Shaker Card
Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy! I have such a fun shaker card for you today. I usually think of kids when I make shaker cards, but adults like them too. I decided to create one that doesn’t use Designer Series Paper. Take a look.
While I was thinking about what to use as a background for the shaker card, I noticed a die-cut on my desk. One of the dies in the Two-Tone Flora Dies is a full page. Here’s the whole set of dies.
I used the big die on the left. It makes a perfect stencil! You can use Blending Brushes with ink pads, Spritzers with ink refills and water or rubbing alcohol, or other coloring media to stencil the image onto card stock. Or, you can simply die-cut it and adhere all or part of it to your card base. I used the new Small Blending Brushes to blend Fresh Freesia, Tahitian Tide, and Bermuda Bay ink onto (and through) the die-cut. Then I adhered it to a 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of Tahitian Tide Cardstock and slipped both layers into a Clear Medium Envelope. I put pinches of For Everything Fancy Sequins in the envelope in front of the stencilled layer, then made sure the layers were flush with one side and the bottom of the envelope. I sealed the envelope as tightly as it would go without bending the paper and taped the other side down so it was also flush with the card stock. Finally, I adhered the envelope to a Fresh Freesia card base.
Since there was so much going on inside the envelope, I kept the front of the card simple. I stamped a sentiment from the Framed Florets Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay, then die-cut it with the Scalloped Contours Dies. After I looped some twine from the Three Twine Combo Pack to the front, I added the die-cut sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I am very happy with how this card turned out. Even adults can’t help giving it a shake! These clear envelope shaker cards are so simple and so fun.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
