Simon Says Stamp Citrus Slices Shaker Card

Hey card makers.  Today I’m sharing Simon Says Stamp Citrus Slices Shaker Card with you.  This lovely Citrus Slices Die set came out with the recent Out of This World Release and it makes a full slice and a half slice.

My color decisions were based on my favorite citrus fruits, Lemons, Limes and Pink Grapefruit.  I cut each set out of white card stock and then used Simons Pawsitively Saturated Inks in Blush, Limelicious (should be called Margarita, LOL) and of course Lemonade.

Simon Says Stamp Citrus Slices Shaker Card – How to create the glimmery center for the fruit:

Start by cutting all the pieces from white cardstock.  Next, cut the same pieces out of White Glitter Paper.

Then, use a Blending Brush to add the ink to both pieces.

Finally, pop the center triangles out of the paper one, glue the outline piece to the white solid circle.  Pop the glimmer triangles out of the white glimmer paper citrus and use glue to inlay the pieces into the paper one.

This creates the juicy looking centers for each of the slices and adds a pile of fun sparkle to the card.

Simon Says Stamp Citrus Slices Shaker Card – creating the Shaker Part.

Start by placing a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of white cardstock onto a protected surface.  Use the three colors of ink and water to splatter the three colors across the card front.

Next, cut a cello bag (old stamp packaging), down to about 1/4 – 1/2″ bigger than your card front.

Then, place redline tape around the back of the card front.  Place the card front face down in the center of the cut cello bag.  Remove the protective adhesive cover from 3 sides of the red line tape and secure the cello to the back of the card front on 3 sides.  This creates a clear pocket.

Finally, drop the shaker guts inside, and seal the remaining side.  I used the pink colored sequins from the Picket Fence Studios Rainbow collection, and a retired set called Carrot patch that had the yellow and green circles and confetti in it.

Putting the card together.

Start by creating a white side folding A2 sized card base.  5-1/2 x 8-1/2, score and fold at 4-1/4.

Next, use more red line tape to secure the shaker piece to the front of the card.

Then, use white liquid glue to attach the three colors of citrus across the front of the card.

Finally, die cut the “Let’s Party” sentiments three times from white cardstock. Keeping one of the backgrounds to become the shadow.

Glue them all together and then use blending brushes to add the ink.  Then glue to the shadow base.

Finally, use foam squares to attach to the center of the card.

  1. Love the bright cheerful colors!
    Question from a newbie. When you say cello is that the wrapping that comes around stamp sets and die sets? The plastic that I throw away? What a clever use for that. Will have to try it.

    “shaker guts” …. oh my gosh, I lost it at that! What a good giggle!

    Love the card. I never, ever would have thought of ink blending on a glitter/glimmer paper. Love the idea.

    Thank you for clearly explaining the steps. By golly, I think that even I can do this one! LOL!
