Hi everyone, nice to see you! I am so super happy to joining the Crafting Desert Divas Design Team! I created this shaker card for this Linky Party! I started off creating a frame using the Fancy Frame dies from white cardstock. I adhered some clear foil behind the frame and applied enough foam tape so it gives the sequins I wanted to use enough room to shake.
For the background I used a piece of watercolor cardstock. I cut the largest scallop frame from the same die set so it would match the frame perfectly. I applied Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Ink with my blending tool, creating an ombré background. After the background panel was dry, I white embossed the word "celebrate" from the Say It Big stamp set.
To fill up my card I used the Fairy Dust sequins. I think they are absolutely perfect - they match the white frame and create a nice contrast to the background. Before I closed up the shaker, I used my anti static powder tool along the edges of the foam tape to prevent the sequins from sticking to it.
To finish off my card I die cut the word "Big" from gold mirror card stock with the new Wishful Thought word dies and adhered it to clear foil to create the sentiment "celectrate big".
I really hope you enjoyed my card! I am looking forward to seeing your creations on the blog!
