Lovely Words Thinlits Friend Shaker Card
F un shaker card using Stampin' Up! products that are a sneak peek or retiring soon.
Cut card stock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Melon Mambo Card Stock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Card Stock
- 3" x 4" from Whisper White Thick Card Stock
- 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" from Window Sheets
Place the white rectangle into the Confetti Embossing Folder so the smooth oval area is centered on the white rectangle. Place the folder with the card stock inside on top of a Cutting Pad on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place another Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the confetti embossed white rectangle to the front of the Melon Mambo card.
Use the Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil to scribble some color across the center of the Whisper White Thick Card Stock at an angle. Then, scribble some Melon Mambo pencil below it and some Pacific Point pencil above it.
Fill the Aqua Painter with the large brush tip with water. Give it a squeeze to get the water flowing into the brush and then start blending the pencil lines. Start with the yellow and work into the pink so they blend a bit to make orange. Scribble on scratch paper to clean the brush and then blend from the yellow into the blue to make green. Allow the card stock to dry completely. You can speed up drying if you wish using a Heat Tool.
Pick out the "friend" thinlit from the Lovely Words Thinlits and the smooth oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits that cuts out an oval that is 2-5/8" x 3-1/2". Place the watercolored rectangle on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the "friend" thinlit on top and then place the smooth oval framelit around it. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock.
Pick out the smooth oval framelit from the Layering Ovals Framelits that cuts out an oval that is 2-3/8" x 3-1/4" . Place the Window Sheet rectangle on a Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the oval thinlit on top. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the Window Sheet oval to the back of the "friend" oval using SNAIL Adhesive around the back edges of the "friend" oval.
Peel off a Foam Adhesive Strip and adhere it around the back of the "friend" oval as close to the opening as you can get without letting the adhesive show. Trim off excess of the Foam Adhesive Strip and put it back on the sheet to use on a different project.
Rub the edge of the Embossing Buddy around the inside edge of the Foam Adhesive Strip a few times. This helps to remove some of the stickiness so that the sequins and glitter don't stick to it. Be careful not to remove the protective backing as you do this step.
Open your card up so it lays flat on your work surface. Put a large pinch of sequins from the Brights Sequin Assortment in the blank oval space on your card front. Also add a pinch of Real Red Glitter Stampin' Emboss Powder.
Remove the protective backing from the Foam Adhesive Strip on the back of the "friend" oval. Adhere the oval to the center of the card front.
Cut a 9" piece of Melon Mambo Thick Baker's Twine. Tie it in a small bow. Trim the ends. Adhere it to the end of the "d" in the word "friend" using a Mini Glue Dot.
