"Hello! Today I'm posting a shaker card; my first shaker card, actually! It was part of Stamp TV's Monday Challenge and it was one of those that I was not sure how to even start! I had never made a shaker card so I watched Gina's tutorial (linked on the referenced challenge page) to see how it was made. I love Stamp TV! It's my favorite place to learn and Gina's products are really top quality. Love it!
Anywho, here's my little shaker card:
My fingers were fighting the whole time with the foam squares to create the space between the acetate sheet and the background layer but it was worth it! I did not have an acetate sheet to make the window so I recycled a package from a craft kit my daughter had. It worked pretty well! For the grass I just cut the pattern out with scissors, very random. There are dies to do this but I do not have one so I just did it free-hand. It cannot be seen too clearly on the picture, but the flower's stem is green ribbon and the leaves are paper pieced. After cutting them out I folded along the center line of the leaf and adhered only on the fold to add dimension.
I thought it would be fun to use patterned paper for the sky and the flower; I think it adds some interest and with it being a shaker card it makes it really fun!
Well, hope you enjoyed the visit.
Thanks for stopping by!"
Have a bright day!
