Easy Watercolor Background Shaker Cards | Brutus Monroe

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a couple of really fun birthday shaker cards for the Brutus Monroe blog hop!


I started out by creating some colorful watercolor backgrounds using Aqua Pigment paints. I used a technique to make these backgrounds that is so super easy to do, I highly recommend checking out the video so that you can see how it is done!


Once the background were dry I used a large circle die to cut them into two circles. I then took the same die as well as a slightly smaller circle die to make two frames out of white cardstock. I also cut two circles out of some acetate. I glued the acetate circles to the frames to create my shaker windows.


I added some doubled up foam tape around the frame to create my shaker area. I then filled the shaker with Pastel Paradise sequins from Lucy’s Cards as well as clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe. I closed the shakers up with the watercolor backgrounds.


I created two 5 x 5 card bases and glued some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to the front. I then glued my shaker circles to the middle of both of the cards.


For the sentiments I used a stamp from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe and embossed them with Alabaster embossing powder on some black cardstock. I popped the sentiments up onto the centers of both cards and went over them with Wink of Stella glitter.
