Hi, I'm back with another shaker card. I just love making them and I think they are fun to receive too! Today I am added a shaker element to my fishtail banner. The layers are made by die-cutting MFT Blueprint 13 from white card stock. With the background layer, I made a snowflake background using Dreamweaver's white embossing paste and Memory Box Winter Tiny Snowflakes Stencil. Setting that aside to dry, I started working on my shaker element. First, I centered the new release from Poppy Stamps Serendipity Bird Frame on my banner. I then used the same die on SB Precious Metals Craft Foil in silver foil and again on Scarlet Metal Sheet. Before adhering my layers together, I traced the oval opening onto some fun foam to make room for my beads. I then used 1/8 Scor-tape to adhere my layers: white cut out banner, clear acetate, and then fun foam. I then wrapped some silver DMC floss around my banner before I placed my beads where my opening would be; then used more 1/8 Scor-tape to adhere my layered banner onto my snowflake embossed background.
I then glued on my silver branched frame and popped up the red birds onto the acetate with small Joy! foam pads. Finally, I tied a knot to my silver floss, added a little tag featuring a sentiment from ODBD Mini Tag Sentiments and Die set embossed with silver detail embossing powder.
Thank you so much for looking and I hope you will find some time to play along with our Winter Birds Challenge here at Classy Cards 'n Such!
