Hello crafty friends!
Happy Hump Day! We're about halfway through the week! Yay!! I'm popping in quickly to share a birthday shaker card I made for my sister-in-law and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Food and/or Drink. My SIL favorite color is pink and so I decided to paired that with beige. What do you think? Do they compliment each other well?
I used Lawn Fawn Baked With Love stamp set to create my card. The images were colored with Copic Markers and then they were carefully fussy cut. Most of the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh, except for the largest pink iridescent sequins, which is from Spiegel Mom Scraps Etsy Shop.
Honestly, this shaker card took me FOREVER to make. They sure are fun, but there's so much work involved in creating one! This is the first time I used Fun Foam and it was not FUN! Lol! Since I have to applied my own adhesive to both sides of the Fun Foam, the adhesive "booger" kept getting on the acetate sheet and the sequins kept getting stuck along the side of the Fun Foam! It was really frustrating! If you have any advice, feel free to share them!
I had to add some sequins on the outside of the shaker because I accidentally got some embossing powder on where some of the sequins are. I forgot to apply the anti-static powder on where I stamped the sentiment!
Even though it took me a long time and some frustrating time to get my shaker working, I still had fun. And, I still absolutely LOVE how the card turned out! :) That's all for today! Thank you for stopping by and I'll see you back here on Friday! Enjoy the rest of your week!
