Step Up Your Cardmaking with Brenda - Shaker Card

Hello, Miss Ink friends!! I hope your week is off to a great start!! I have another edition of Step Up Your Cardmaking to share with you today!! This one is one of the best ways to "step-up" a card design...make it into a shaker!! Everyone LOVES a shaker card!!

This card took many different turns until I got to the finished cards!! Sometimes things come together easily and sometimes it's a struggle...lol!! You will see some things in my photos that I didn't end up using and will save for future projects.

I began by stamping the images from Painting the Roses onto white cardstock, colored them with Copics and fussy cut them out. I used the following Copic colors: RV69, RV29, RV14, RV13, YG17, YG13, YG03, N5, N3, N1, N0, E39, E37, E35.

 

I trimmed a panel of red cardstock slightly smaller than A2 size. I also die-cut a white frame with a pierced rectangle die.

 

For the background, the Queen's Castle image was white heat embossed onto the panel of red cardstock. 

 

The sentiment, also from Painting the Roses, was white heat embossed onto black cardstock. The cards were assembled as shown, adding acetate and popping up the frame with a double layer of foam adhesive for the shaker. Painted Roses embellishments were used for the shaker portion and a few were added around the sentiment on the non-shaker card.

Thanks so  much for stopping by today!! I hope that I've inspired you to give a shaker a try to step up your cardmaking!!
