Happy Monday, Hollowers! It’s Amanda Fitterer sharing with you on this lovely day! I hope this sweet slimline shaker card puts a smile on your face!
Have you gotten your October subscription box?! I just love the “Around Winter” stamp set that is included in the box. It’s so versatile! In my post a few weeks ago, I used it as a background and a focal point on 2 different cards! For this interactive card, I used it as a patterned background! The little gift boxes are just so cute they make the perfect pattern!
To make this card, I am starting with a few slimline dies. For my card base, I’m using Pink and Main’s Stitched Slimline Dies. I also cut a border using Pink and Main’s Blessings Slimline Dies, which you can see in the photo below. In the end, I didn’t end up using the border for this card because it distracted from the rest of the card. I saved it for another project! The windows that I’ll use for the shaker portion of the card are created from Heffy Doodle’s Stitched Slimline Trio Dies. On my card base, I’m going to create a subtle green background for each of my windows using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide.
Now I’m going to grab my super adorbs “Around Winter” stamp set and the ever-juicy Catherine Pooler Tutti Frutti ink pad. I’m using a clear acrylic block to mount my stamp. I almost always use my MISTI while stamping with clear stamps because I know that with most inks and stamps, I will need to stamp it more than once. However, this ink pad is so juicy that I know I’ll get a perfect image the first time, so I am using the acrylic block to make the stamping go faster.
I have stamped my images using the Mama Elephant Santa Baby stamp set and alcohol-friendly ink. Now I’m ready to start coloring with my Copic markers!
After prepping my black cardstock with my anti-static tool, I’m going to stamp my sentiments with VersaMark Watermark ink. Using white embossing powder and my heat tool, I’m going to emboss my sentiment. Using scissors and my paper trimmer, I’ll cut these little guys down to fit on my card.
Now I’m ready to assemble my card! I am using 3D foam squares to adhere my images and sentiments to the front of my card.
Here are some close-ups of the completed card! I love a good shaker card, don’t you?
