Hi Shaker Card
Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a fun Spring shaker card perfect to send to anyone.
With a few simple die cuts, you can easily create multiples of this card. I used 2 Sparkle Blends for the shaker - Sparkle Blends: Flower Power & Sparkle Blends: Flaming Sunset
For a floral fanatic, this blend is perfect! Flowers in this bright, happy blend!
Flower styles range from simple daisies to Fimo slices and holographic blooms.
The beautiful hues of red, yellow, orange and gold sequins, crystals,
seed beads, and colorful spheres gives this blend just the right tone.
So, Let's get started!
I gathered my supplies. Then, I die cut the word HI using my big letters from heavyweight white cardstock and some flowers from glitter cardstock and vellum.
Next, I used some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Spray in Spiced Marmalade and Some TH Distress Oxide Ink in Squeezed Lemonade on the card front panel that I die cut my greeting from. I set it aside to dry.
Then, I worked on the flowers. I added a bit of liquid glue to the center of the vellum flowers and added the glitter flowers on top. I then curled the petals a bit for some dimension.
Now, that the front panel is dry; I turn it over and adhere some clear packaging (you can use acetate) to the back. I then add some foam adhesive all over the back of the front panel - expect where the greeting is. Next, I add a mix of the Sparkle Blends into the open area. Add the Light Orange cardstock backing to the panel.
Now, adhere the flowers to the front panel. I added some Sparkle Blends to the center of the flowers for a finishing touch.
Now, the card is complete!
