As you know, I’ve been making a ton of Valentine’s Day cards.
I decided to include a few basic shaker cards as people seem drawn to them – and the flower shop owner certainly is! (She loves anything with bling.)
This was really simple and relatively quick. I cut out two of the topper card (shown here in white). Then cut out a panel on only one of them. After adding snail tape on the back around the cut out panel, I added a piece of acetate that was larger than the cut out, but smaller than the full panel.
I added foam tape all around the panel, ensuring it couldn’t be seen, then added some pink glitter, some red hearts (left over from a punched out piece), and some sequins.
I also added foam tape around the edges to keep the whole thing even.
Remember that second panel we cut out? Last of all, I added that panel. That seals in all the sequins etc.
Attach this whole piece to the red cardbase with a strong adhesive. I used wet glue, but you can use whatever you trust. I also sat my stamping platform on it for a while to ensure it was adhered properly.
If you would like to do what I did here and foil the acetate using a Go Press and Foil machine, here’s the video I watched to learn how to do it! *There is definitely some trial and error involved regarding shims. Here’s my first attempt:
The hot foil stamp die I used for this is from Ultimate Crafts and is simply called “You & Me”.
If you don’t have a Go Press and Foil machine you can either stamp the acetate, or add your greeting to the cardstock panel.
I am adding this card to the current Double D Challenge, which is Sequins.
