I am also excited to share with you that this is my first project using the new Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. I will be doing a few guest design posts for them this month! Doodles Paper Playground is a new company that has its own sequin embellishment blends, Sparkle Blends. Today, I used a sparkle blend called Spring Fling as my inspiration to make this happy spring shaker card.
To start my shaker card, I die cut the top cover portion and used it to mark off the inside corners on my A2 card. Then I took two different colors of distress oxides to blend colors on the background staying within the marked corners. I stamped the fairies and flowers on white cardstock and colored them with copics. I really like this stamp set and yet I don't have the dies that go along with them so I had to fussy cut them out. Note to self: should get the dies ;)
I have several stamp sets that were packaged in heavier acetate and keep them for shaker card projects. I took one of them, trimmed it down to the size of my cover die and then adhered it to the inside of my cut cardstock. I used my top piece as a guide to figure out where I wanted my flowers and glued them in place. I also took a note from Jennifer McGuire and glued a few of the butterfly embellishments from the sequin blend in place so they would always be flying.
To finish the shaker portion off, I glued the fairies to the top cover and added foam tape along all of the edges. I added the Sparkle Blend to the colored portions of my card directly and then took the release tape off and placed the top cover on. The sentiment was a die that I already had cut out I used the same distress oxides to pounce color on the top and bottom. After I glued it down, I covered it with glossy accents to give a little sparkle and dimension.
You can see some of the different elements of the sequin blend in the picture above. I love the tiny hearts and seed beads that are included.
