I decided to make a shaker card and started by inking the stencil with Baby Pink and Fuschia ink on an A2 white card stock front.
I then die cut the circle with the largest circle in the Halftone Nesting Circles Die set and laid the panel over a piece of white card stock, tracing the circle. Next, I addy Baby Pink and Fuchsia ink through the Simple Vintage Garden Coloring stencil, keeping the inking within the pencil traced circle. After adding the darker detailed layer, I placed the "base" layer back over the inking and added Nuvo Moonstone Glimmerpaste and set aside to dry.
Instead of using foam tape to create dimension for the shaker, I die cut the circle from 3 pieces of card stock just a little smaller than A2 size and stacked them together, ensuring the "windows" were lined up and trimming off any white not completely covered by the inked piece. I adhered acetate directly behind the inked panel and then glued all the layers together.
While the panel dried, I die cut "hugs" 3 times from black card stock, stacked together with liquid glue and, when dry, added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter and adhered to the stencilled background.
I laid the inked/stacked layers card front face down and then added sequins and shaker mix from my stash, prior to adding the shaker mix I marked the back of the card front with a pencil in order to line up the back panel so it showed through the window as I wanted.
I used a combination of double sided tape and liquid adhesive to glue the panels together and gave it lots of time to dry to ensure there would be no random bits falling out of the shaker.
Finally, I glued the entire panel to an A2, 4 1/2" x 5 1/4" card base.
Thanks for taking a look!
