When I started today's card I knew I wanted to make a shaker card because I hadn't made one in a while. So when I was looking through my stamp sets for ideas I saw the Dragon Wishes stamp set from Mama Elephant and I got an idea to use all of the small dragons in it with tiny shaker windows behind them.
So to start the card I cut out all of the circle shaker windows. I probably could have measured a little better to do this, but honestly I most eye-balled it, but it worked!
After I had all my windows cut I cut out another square piece of cardstock and marked where all of the circles lined up onto that paper. This paper was going to become the background of all of the little windows. So using the pencil marks as a guide I added different colors of Distress Oxide ink to each of the window backgrounds.
I stamped the four little dragons from the Mama Elephant set on some Bristol Smooth paper with my Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I colored them in using my Arteza Real Brush Pens and my Prismacolor pencils.
I popped up the little dragons with some foam tape on each of the four corner shaker windows. The sentiment that I used comes from the My Favorite Things stamp set Adorable Elephants. I made a 5.5x5.5 card base (the shaker portion is 5x5) and used a piece of black card stock to be a border around the shaker element. To finish the card I went over the sentiment strip with my Wink Of Stella.
