Happy Sunday everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog creating a shiny SHAKER card.
I’m still relatively new to stamping and card making. I tend to go all in and try to use as many products as I can. Thankfully, Therm O Web understands and always has amazing corresponding products that feed my need for “lots of details”. Their Gina K. Designs Premium cardstock has been a game-changer for me; it’s smooth, high-quality finish has helped to elevate my stamping and embossing…and then they have foil – how did I ever create without foil before?
Here is how I created this very happy, shiny shaker card:
Step 1- STAMP
Stamp the sentiment, “Thanks Snow Much”.
Stamp and emboss snowflakes with Gina K. Designs Baby, it’s Cold Outside stamps. I used Clearsnap, Top Boss, ink and silver embossing powder. Step 2 – FOIL
Using a laminator add Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils to the Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates Label Border and Designer Toner Sheets (Prim Poinsettia design) and cut out the label with the corresponding die set. I use the purple tape to hold my die in place when I run it through my die cutting machine. It holds everything in place perfectly AND it is easily removed. Step 3 – CREATE DEPTH
Using the Gina K. Designs Decorative Label Die, cut out two pieces of craft foam and a “window” from the foiled Poinsettia Toner Sheet.
Create a sandwich from the foiled label, toner sheet window, and two layers of foam. This sandwich will hold the MultiCraft CraftMedley glass seed beads that turn this into a shaker card. Adhere the window layers together with Mixed Media adhesive. Step 4 – ASSEMBLE THE CARD
Attach your window filled with beads to your card front with Mixed Media adhesive. I added a snowflake die (Baby It’s Cold outside set) with a fussy cut toner sheet poinsettia in the lower corner of the label.
Randomly adhere glass beads to the face of the card with the Mixed Media adhesive. Mount everything on a sheet of glitter cardstock.
Wait till your adhesive dries and then shake, shake your happy card!
Merry Christmas everyone!
