Today I created a fun shaker card using the Secret Santa stamp set from My Favorite Things.
I started out by stamping a TON of the images from the stamp set onto a piece of Neenah solar white cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I colored in the imaged with my Copic markers. Check out the video for all of the coloring details! After the coloring was done I used my Scan N Cut to cut out all of the images.
I took two pieces of A2 size cardstock to start creating my shaker. On one of them I glued a piece of Gina K Cherry Red cardstock to the upper half. The red cardstock will become the background of my shaker. For the other A2 piece I cut a square window out of the top. I glued a piece of acetate to the window and then created my shaker area with some doubled up foam tape. I added a lot of red sequins and closed up the shaker with the other piece of A2 size cardstock. I glued the shaker panel onto an A@ size card base and then glued the tree and presents down.
I thought the outside looked really good and didn’t need anything else so I stamped one of the sentiments from the set on the inside of my card instead. I had to use a block to do the stamping because the card wouldn’t fit into my MISTI at this point. I was really careful and stamped it with Gina K Amalgam ink. Next I added the two little children that I had colored in to the inside flap of the card. I used a white gel pen to add details and highlights to all of the colored in images.
I decided to go all out and decorate the back of the card as well. I stamped the little plate of cookies stamp on the lower half of the page. I used my Copic multi-liner to add some wavy heat lines about the cookies so they look nice and hot. I didn’t want to color the cookies with my Copics because if they bled through the paper you would see it on the inside of the card. So instead I used a few of my Arteza Real Brush Pens for the coloring. I used the colors Ginger and Tawny for the cookies and Dolphin Gray for the plate.
