Hello crafty friends!
I'm on the Pretty Pink Posh blog today
to share an Easter card for Easter theme week!
For my card today I used the adorable new Easter Friends stamp set to create a cute shaker card.
To start my card off, I used a light blue A2 sized card based and stamped the patterned Easter eggs in the stamp set in the same colored ink all over for a tone on tone background. Moving on to the fun shaker area, I used the Scallop Circle die with some purple card stock to cut out my circle, I also die cut a piece of fun foam with a die to use as my dimension to create my shaker piece, however you can use foam adhesive, I just didn't feel like cutting it down into thin strips and I prefer that the fun foam is a little thinner. Once I had my acetate attached to my scallop circle along with my foam for dimension it's on to adding all the sequins and elements. I wanted to be able to see the background of my card through the shaker, which makes it a little trickier to add the elements without a backing, what I find easiest is to put something heavy on the card to hold it down and then place all the sequins and seed beads in a small area where you want the shaker piece and then adhere the shaker element right on top. For my shaker I used the Hydrangea beads, Lilac beads, Clear Confetti mix , 3mm Sparkling Clear sequins and I also added a few colored Easter eggs in there that I colored in with Copic markers and cut out using the coordinating dies from the stamp set.
I stamped my cute little Easter bunny and the rest of the images on white card stock, colored in with Copic markers and cut out again using the coordinating dies. I adhered my images onto my shaker element and stamped my sentiment to finish my card off!
That's it for my shaker card!
I hope you enjoyed my Easter shaker card created with the adorable new Easter Friends stamp set.
Thank you so much for joining me today!
