This is a card I made for Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #73 - Birthday. I used Lawn Fawn paper, stamps, and dies to create the shaker card.

Materials

  • A2 Size Card
  • Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter - 1 sheet
  • Double Sided Adhesive
  • Craft Foam Sheet
  • Spectrum Noir Paper (or any other that is good for alcohol markers)
  • Sequins (I used turquoise and clear)
  • Glitter (I used light blue and iridescent white)
  • Foam Squares

Tools

  • Die Cutting Machine
  • Lawn Fawn Party Kangaroo stamps and dies
  • Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangular Stackable Dies
  • Lawn Fawn Outside In Rectangle Stackable Dies
  • Scotch Advanced Tape Glider and Tape (or whatever adhesive you like)
  • Mini Blending Ink Blending Tool
  • Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Mini Distress Ink
  • Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Mini Distress Ink
  • Copic Markers (or whatever coloring markers you like) W1, W3, W5, W9, B00, B04, BR20
  • Powder Tool

Instructions

  1. Prep by cutting out an A2 size (5 1/2" X 4 1/4") rectangle of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Winter paper. I used Lawn Fawn's largest rectangle stitched rectangle die. Then use the medium sized rectangle from Lawn Fawn's Outside In Stitched Rectangle Die set to cut out an opening to make a frame. Then put double sided adhesive on both sides of a foam sheet and cut out two rectangle frames just like you did for the paper. Peel off the adhesive on one side of one frame and adhere it to the other foam frame to give you two layers.
  2. coloring kangarooStamp the kangaroo and party hats (I used 3 hats) on white paper that is good for alcohol markers. If you are going to color with alcohol markers you want to use an ink that won't bleed. I used Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. Then color the images.
  3. Cut out the images and banner for your sentiment with Lawn Fawn coordinating dies and Lawn Fawn's Fancy Wavy Banner Die.
  4. embossing sentimentStamp the kangaroo sentiment on the banner with blue distress ink and stamp the "Hop-Hop-Hooray" on white paper and cut it into a banner shape around the words. Use clear embossing powder and a heat tool to emboss the words. (You can skip embossing if you don't have the tools for this.)
  5. Ink blending card frontUse distress ink and blending tool to color the card front to coordinate with your patterned paper. I used Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Weathered Wood Distress Ink.
  6. Peel off adhesive from foam window and put it on the front of your card.
  7. Use your powder tool to go around the sides of the frame to get rid of the stickiness on the sides of the foam.
  8. adding glitterAdd sequins and glitter to the well that you created with the foam.
  9. Cut out a rectangle of cellophane or acetate and adhere it to the back of your paper frame to make a window. (I just use plastic from packaging for this.)
  10. adhering card frontAdhere your paper frame to the front of your card.
  11. Adhere your images and sentiments to your card using double sided tape and foam squares. I used the foam squares on the Kangaroo and party hats.
