Hey everyone! Today I am sharing a shaker card I created featuring some products from Brutus Monroe.
I started this card by taping a piece of light gray cardstock to a board. Next I taped the Tangled Waves stencil over the gray cardstock. This stencil it supposed to look like waves, but with the right colors and some sparkle I thought it would look like a snowy wind. I used a palette knife to spread some Unicorn Glitter Glaze over the stencil. Once I finished filling in all the waves and smoothing out the paste I carefully removed the stencil. Whenever you use any kind of texture paste you want to make sure to clean off you supplies before the paste can dry. I just use warm water to clean my stencils and tools. I set the glitter glaze panel aside to dry for a while before moving on.
To create my sentiment I took a piece of white cardstock and prepped it with a powder tool for embossing. I picked out a stamp from the Merry and Bright stamp set and stamped it with Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink. Because Distress Oxide ink has the properties of both a die ink and a pigment ink you can emboss with it if you are quick. I sprinkled Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder over the sentiment and set it with my heal tool. I have been really loving adding Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder to my Christmas card sentiments. It is a clear powder with colorful sparkles in it, so it made my red sentiment all shiny and sparkly. I used a circle die to cut out my sentiment.
Next I took the glitter glaze panel and cut it down to be slightly smaller than an A2 size card. I used a circle die to cut a hole out of the upper half of the panel. This will be my shaker window. I glued a piece of acetate to the back of the panel over the hole to create my window. I curved some foam tape around the window to create the shaker area. I filled the shaker with some large clear glitter and closed it with a piece of white cardstock. I then glued the whole shaker panel to an A2 size card base.
To finish up my card I glued the sentiment circle to the middle of my shaker window. I then carefully added some liquid glue around the outer edge of the shaker window. I took a piece of white and red bakers twine and slowly worked it around the circle onto the glue. Very carefully, trying hard not to pull too hard, I tied the twine into a knot. I snipped the ends of the twine and then my card was done!
