Firetruck Duck Card

Firetruck Duck Card

Welcome!  I have another slimline card for you today featuring the Firetruck Duck stamp set and a lot of splishy, splashy watery embellishments including the Wave stencil!  I hope that you get the sense that I had a lot of fun making this card!

To make the card, I made a slimline card base with the dimensions of 8.5 inches by 3.5 inches and then die cut a slimline scalloped panel that had windows in it (all dies from Trinity Stamps) out of blue cardstock in my stash.  I knew that I wanted to make a shaker card so I die cut the same panel out of white foam and cut only with the scalloped panel die out of acetate.  

To make the shaker, the gluing order was blue panel, acetate, foam, fill with shaker raindrops sequins (Trinity Stamps) before adhering it to a 8 inch by 3 inch white cardstock piece (can be die cut or cut by hand); I used Gina K connect glue because it allows movement of the items before it dries.  Once I had this sandwich complete, I adhered it with strong double sided tape to the slimline card base.

To create the acetate waves on the front of the card, I used Versamark ink with the Wave stencil on Lawn Fawn acetate (the only one that I found stands up to heat well without warping) prior to adding Wow embossing powder in "Under The Sea" color.  I then used a heat gun as I normally would; the acetate did not warp!

I then fussy cut individual waves and adhered them as you can se below.  The advantage of making individual waves is that you can first place them, cut anything you don't want and then adhere them to your project without committing first like you would if you were to directly heat emboss the cardstock panel.  I think the acetate also enhances the shimmer of the embossing powder!

I die cut all the Firetruck Duck stamp images with my Brother Scan-n-cut2 and then simply copic colored them with R46, RV29 (firetruck, hydrant, hat), Y21, YR21 & YR68 (ducks) B000 (water) and C3, C5 (hose, tires).  I added sequins from Trinity Stamps and white gel pen marks to highlight certain areas.

Thank you for stopping by!
