Simple Shaker Cards | My Favorite Things

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing some simple shaker cards using the brand new Friendly Foxes stamp set from My Favorite Things. Be sure to check out the rest of My Favorite Things brand new release!

I stamped three of the foxes from the set onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I cut them out using the coordinating die set.

I blended some backgrounds for my shakers with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Shaded Lilac, Seedless Preserves, Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Tumbled Glass, and Peacock Feathers. I used two colors on each of the three backgrounds.

I started the background by taking the lighter of the two colors and blending an area big enough for my shaker. I then taped a polka dot stencil from My Favorite Things over the top and blended on that with the darker color. I lifted the stencil and gently added a little bit more of the darker color along the bottom.

To create the front panels I took A2 sizes of Neenah Solar White and cut circles out of each of them with the Hero Arts nested circle die set. I then stamped a different sentiment from the set on each of the three panels with black ink.

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of each panel and then added doubled up foam tape around the window. I all of the shakers with large clear glitter and closed them up with the background panels.

I adhered my shaker panels to A2 size card bases. I then glued one fox to each of the three shaker windows with Gina K Designs Connect glue.

To finish up the cards I used a white gel pen and added some highlights to each of the foxes.
