I am back on the Itsy Bitsy blog with a shaped shaker card for today.
Time is the essence of life. That is why living in the present is so important.
As Bil Keane says, Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.
I created this card dedicating it to ‘Now’.
You can see a video of the card below:
Read on further how I made this card….
First I used the script stencil with black ink on Classic White cardstock.
Then I used the large frame from the Ornate Frame thin cut dieset on the stenciled piece. After that I used the 2nd largest circle from the same dieset on the diecut piece. You get a circle and a frame.
Let’s keep the circle aside.
Turn the frame and adhere a piece of acetate on it with double sided tape. On top of it attach pieces of foam tape. Lets call it the front panel.
I then took the circle ( from step 2 ) and ink blended it with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass distress oxides.
* You can use a single shade too *
I also diecut 2 more pieces of the Ornate frame-die. I scored one of them at the top.
I then adhered the blue circle on the scored ornate diecut from above.
The next step involves putting all the shaker bits on the blue circle. I used different sparkling dotties and micro beads for this.
On top of this place the ‘front panel’ ( from step 3 ) that has the foam tape.
To adorn this panel, I colored different watercolour embellishments from Vintage Clocks and Vintage Cars Watercolour Embellishments pack by Little Birdie with various distress oxides.
I also stamped the sentiment from the Family stamp set on the colored banner. I adhered all these on the front panel.
The final step is to attach the remaining Ornate piece ( from step 5 ) at the scored part.
And the shaker card is complete.
You can even keep this card upright for display.
Hope you liked my timeless shaker card. If you do make this card, I would love to see your creations.
