There is a challenge over at Power Poppy which has pushed me to finally make a shaker card!
The challenge is "Make it move", so I have sort of followed a tutorial by Kathy Racoosin on Power Poppy and made a wreath as my housing for my shaker card. But instead of using circular dies, I have used the greenery from Glittering Glass Santa. I created a wreath in Photoshop Elements and then had my Silhouette Cameo print and cut from X-Press It paper.
I have then coloured it with the following Copics pens:
- berries - R27, R59, clear Wink of Stella
- leaves - G05, YG17, YG67, light green Wink of Stella, green Wink of Stella
- background - B000, B02
I have then stamped the tree and ornaments from Bottlebrush Holiday using Black Tuxedo Memento ink on to X-Press It paper and fussy cut it out.
I have coloured this with the following Copics pens:
- tree - G05, YG17, YG67, R27, R59, clear Wink of Stella
- base of tree - E55, Y28
- blue bauble - B000, B00, B02, clear Wink of Stella
- pink bauble - RV00, RV63, RV66, blue Wink of Stella
- purple bauble - BV11, BV13, BV17, clear Wink of Stella
- banner - C0, C1, C2
I stamped "Be Merry" using bamboo leaves Memento Ink and I used a Tuxedo Black Memento marker around the edges.
I have then used a white square card from Envelope Solutions. I made the shaker pocket by using a Waterfall Photo Sleeve from We R Memory Keepers and the FUSE tool. I added sequins and little beads from my stash.
I adhered the filled and fused shaker pocket to the back of the wreath and then used dimensional tape to give it a bit of height before adhering to the centre of the card. I then adhered the tree and ornaments at the bottom.
Here is the finished card:
Let me know what you think?
I am also entering this card into the Rudolph Days Challenge and the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge which is to pick a previous sketch. I picked the following sketch:
I am also entering this card into the Weekly Christmas Card Challenges, where the theme is "Anything Goes" and of course, the inspiration behind this card is the Power & Spark Make It Move challenge over at Power Poppy.
Thanks for looking!
