Hi friends, today I’m posting over on the Picket Fence Studio blog and I have Picket Fence Studios Slimline Shaker Card to share with you.
I love making slimline cards and a shaker card is an added bonus don’t you think.
Tips for creating the Picket Fence Studios Slimline Shaker Card:
Start with the background using the largest of the Slim Line Nested Rectangles Dies to die cut a slimline background.
Next, cover the background with the Slimline Broken Fence stencil and secured it.
Add Paper Glaze randomly over the background in Peony Pink and Pink Carnation (they are truly stunning together).
Blend them by pulling the pallet knife down the entire length of the background a couple of times.
Then, set this piece aside to dry.
Constructing the Slimline Shaker Part of the Card:
Die cut the small and large Slim Line Nested Rectangles together to create a white frame for your card with a pretty stitched edge.
I find taping them together before die cutting yields the best results.
Next, add a thin line of white glue around the back and attach a piece of acetate cut the same size.
Add a thin line of foam tape all around the back of this. It creates the void in the center for the “shaker guts”.
Picket Fence has a beautiful selection of sequins that are perfect for “shaker guts”, and I chose the Gin and Tonic Mix for today’s card.
Pile a generous sprinkle into the center of the dry background and then attach the frame piece you just created, pressing firmly around the edges to ensure it’s sealed.
Next, attach it to a white card base. This one is 7-1/2 x 9, scored and folded at 3-3/4.
I used my Misti to stamp the floral image twice in Black Hybrid Ink before coloring it with my Copics. Then I cut them out and added them to both ends of my card.
Finally, I die cut the sentiment in Gina K Dusty Rose and White cardstock and attached it to the center of my card.
There you go….a pretty floral for spring, just change out the sentiment for whatever event you are celebrating.
However, I must apologize, it seems I used a retired sentiment die as I can’t find it in the store so I’ve linked a couple the same size that would work.
