Heart Rose Shakerby Kendra Sand
Hello, Frantic Stamper Fans! Kendra, here from Luv 2Scrap N' Make Cards to share a fun tutorial with you!
I absolutely LOVE creating shaker cards, they are so much fun! I must admit I am addicted to making them! It's so much fun to see the recipients reaction to these fun cards! And yes, I am like a little kid, I love to shake them up before giving them! To me shaker cards in themselves scream FUN!
By special request, a customer asked for us to share how we create these fun cards! For this last Feminine Style Release, I created this elegant Wedding card:
I created another one to share the process!
I started by grabbing a few supplies:
- Cardstock Base (A2)
- Cardstock Layer 4" x 5 1/4"
- Heart Rose Die
- Sequins and Seed Beads
- Double-sided Adhesive Tape
- Foam Tape
- Stamp Set of Choice
I first added some double-sided adhesive tape to the backside of my cardstock roughly to the area where I planned to run the Heart Rose Die cut through my Big Shot.
(This step is optional . It is a little bit of waste of adhesive, but I found it to be easiest for me. As this die tends to be intricate, I didn't want to have to carefully glue it in a future step and worry about glue running and having a mess! This will be a little more clear as I go on.)
I then took my cardstock layer and Heart Rose Die and ran it through my Big Shot!
I carefully remove the cardstock and die cut! I removed all the unwanted pieces, which left me with my open heart window and the beautiful die cut heart rose. The heart rose is now a sticker, since I added the adhesive, which will make it easy to add to the acetate! No having to carefully add glue to all the tiny edges!
I flipped over my card base, I may or may not have needed to add more adhesive to the back. I didn't need to, since adding the adhesive to the right side of my base earlier, I had enough, so I just needed to peel off the backing and add my piece of acetate, making sure the acetate covered the entire window.
So exciting! I could have just left it like this if I wanted to, and just have the heart cut-out, but I really like the entire die and all the detail, so I flipped it back to the front and added the heart rose sticker.
While on this side, I added my sentiment just under the heart. I ended up using a "Congratulations" sentiment.
Now for the fun!!
I flipped the card base back over and added my foam tape.
It was important that I made sure that the foam tape went all the way around the entire window so all the foam was touching or else I would have a mess and the sequins would have fallen out!
I removed the backing from the adhesive foam.
I added sequins to my liking (being careful not to drop any on the adhesive).
This is so much fun! I just love having created my own sequins mixes!!
Then I added a small piece of cardstock that fits just over the window! I used white cardstock for this card, but sometimes it is fun to use pattern paper!
I added some tape adhesive to the piece of paper I just added. I then affixed the shaker card layer to my card base!
So fun to make! The possibilities are endless!!
My completed card:
So elegant and beautiful! And so much fun to create!! I ended up adding a few rhinestones to add a little more elegance.
I hope I have inspired you to create a shaker card! Have a fabulous day!!
