Seasonal Scene Building Card

I am sharing another card as I work through the 10 Altenew Academy classes required for my Altenew Educator Certification. This card is for the Seasonal Scene Building class, if you've never taken an Altenew class I highly recommend them. While I am just sharing one card I made for the class, this class had 6 in depth step by step videos so you are introduced to 6 different lessons using various techniques to create a scene on your cards. 


I first stamped the branch using the Altenew Under the Cherry Blossom stamp and then stamped the blooms. I then stamped the same image on Post It paper and fussy cut it to create a mask to place over my image.
After placing the mask I applied Distress Oxide Ink in Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio and Chipped Sapphire to create a night time scene. 

I turned this in to a shaker by first cutting a rectangular frame, then cut a piece of acetate the same size as the frame. I glued the acetate to the frame then added foam tape as close to the inner edge of the frame without being visible. I then layed the the frame face down so the foam tape was facing me, peeled off the tape and sprinkled a variety of sequins and beads on the acetate and finished it off by placing the stamped panel on the foam tape. Always press firmly to ensure there are no gaps between the tape and the paper or you'll lose sequins! I've learned that from experience 😉.

Thanks for taking a look!
