This week, Crystal is joining us to show off her feature creation!
Hi crafty friends! As soon as I saw the sentiment "Shake it!" from the Be Happy Laugh Lines stamp set I know I wanted to make a shaker card. Everyone loves a shaker card right?!?
I started with stamping the lady image onto smooth white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. After I colored the image in I fussy cut it out.
I die cut a stitched rectangle using the largest double stitched rectangle die.
I adhered strips of pattern paper with silver glitter card stock onto white card stock. Using the next smallest from the largest double stitched rectangle die I cut out another rectangle. I used a small double stitched rectangle die to cut an opening on the left side towards the top. I adhered acetate over the opening and stamped the sentiment "SHAKE IT!" with StazOn black ink.
I stamped the sentiment "HAPPY BIRTHDAY LET'S SEE THAT HAPPY DANCE!" onto white card stock and die cut it out with a banner stitched die I turned the die and used the side to die cut the banner off of the left side.
I added a double layer of foam tape to the smaller rectangle with the window cut out.
I added the sequins and adhered the smaller rectangle to the largest rectangle on the left side towards the top.
I adhered the sentiment banner toward the bottom left. I then adhered the older lady on the right side over hanging the acetate window.
I had so much fun making this card!
