A fun Shaker Card

Hello friends. Alanna here and I'm happy to be sharing a project made with new stamps and dies from the newest release at This Calls for Confetti. This release is amazing, and I think you're going to love it.

For my card, I decided to create a shaker card. I took the new Elongated Ovals Cover Plate die and die cut it 5 times from black card stock. I adhered those altogether and then added a piece of acetate on top of the top layer. I flipped the die cuts over and then added a bit of the beautiful Honeysuckle mix into each of the wells. Once they were filled, I took another piece of acetate and adhered it to seal everything up.

Side note: This Calls for Confetti carries a package of acetate sheets trimmed down to A2 size. They are so easy to work with and have a protective film on them to protect them from getting scratched. Just make sure to remove the film before use.

I flipped over my panel again and then added one more of the Elongated Ovals Cover Plate die cuts. This time, I die cut it from some specialty black cardstock that has some shimmer to it. I adhered my panel to a white notecard that measures 4.5x 6 inches. I wanted a thin white border surrounding my shaker frame and because the Elongated Ovals Cover Plate die is sized at A2, I needed to make my card a bit bigger.

It was then time to work on the outside of my shaker frame. I took one of the images from the Alice's Story - Honeysuckle set and stamped it with black ink. I did some quick coloring with my Copic markers and then used the coordinating dies to die cut it out. 

I die cut one more of the floral dies to add stability and dimension to my floral image and adhered it to the outside of my shaker element. I then stamped the sentiment which is from the same Alice's Story - Honeysuckle set and die cut it. I added two pieces of white cardstock behind it and then to help it stand out even more, I took a black marker and went around the edges.

I hope you have a wonderful day. I will be back on the blog next week sharing more inspiration using this release. Crafty hugs! ~ Alanna
