Inspiration: I've been wanting to make a shaker card for awhile now, and I finally got around to it. I've seen many Painter's Palette shaker cards on the Internet, so they prompted me to try one of my own.
- Sometimes less is more. I found out that I'm "swoosh" challenged. LOL I kept trying to add a bunch of swooshes to the greeting, but nothing quite looked right. So, I decided to go with just one swoosh and the speckles instead.
- The sequins are from the June Paper Pumpkin kit, and I added a few white beads I had in a drawer. I'm thinking shaker cards could lead to a new hoarding problem for me....beads and sequins.
- The main image took a few steps.
- Stamp the easel in Basic Black on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with scissors.
- To make the gold frame:
- Rub an embossing buddy on another piece of Very Vanilla card stock.
- Put a sticky note or piece of Post-It tape on the easel stamp covering the top and legs.
- Ink the stamp with Versamark ink.
- Remove the masks and stamp.
- Add Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.
- Cut out the frame with the 2-5/8" and 2-3/16" Layering Squares Framelits (both are outside measurements). Note that I masked off the top and legs of the easel because a sliver of them would have shown after cutting out the frame.
