Hey friends! Im sharing a super cute shaker card with you today! For this card, I used the Lawn Fawn set, YETI SET GO! This is a small set that has this yeti image as well as a few trees and some punny sentiments. I also have the coordinating dies for this set, so I could perfectly die cut the yeti and trees.
This set can be used for Valentine’s day, since it has some fun sentiments, or it can be an any occasion. I made a wintery scene here that compliments our yeti, but I think it could be used for any time of the year!
So, the first thing I did was watercolor a pink/purplish sky for the background. To do this, I just layered some AQUA PIGMENTS over some shimmery cardstock, and let the paint dry between adding more layers. I also added splatters of GILDED LIQUID ELEMENTS for some extra shine. It’s hard to pick up the shimmer on camera, but I promise, its there!
Once the background was done, I used my FUSE TOOL to fuse a plastic pocket all around the background. Then, I filled the pocket with sequins and glitter that made it look like snow. The background I made sure to keep slightly smaller than an A2 sized card, so I could then simply adhere the whole fused pocket onto the front of my card base.
The rest of the scene is built on the front of the shaker pocket. I die cut the little trees from GLITTERSTOCK after stamping the tree image on them. I then used my LAWN FAWN STITCHED HILLS DIES to cut out vellum hills to layer over each other. I could then tuck my little images behind those hills to create the scene. My little yeti is stamped and die cut after I colored it with some STYLEFILE MARKERS.
To finish this card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment in ALABASTER EMBOSSING POWDER on a strip of RAVEN CARDSTOCK.
Super cute little shaker card! The colors I chose makes it seem like a Valentine’s card, but it can really be any occasion!
Until next time,
