The other day I mentioned to my MIL that I wanted to do a shaker card and as soon as she saw Love Showers Teddy Bo digi stamp she said that I should get that and make it into the shaker card. So as any good daughter-in-law would do I did as I was told and went to the shop and added love showers to my basket. As I was there another couple of digi's fell in the basket and then I saw that Gayle had released the first lot of their new goodies, a new 8x8" patterned papers book so that fell in too. Well it would be rude not to wouldn't it??
The papers arrived this morning and I'm regretting only buying 1 lot of papers. They are gorgeous and printed on the best quality paper I've ever found. I had planned on using them on this card but just couldn't take my scissor's to them.
I am entering this card into the following challenge :
Bunny Zoe's - easel cards
Cute card thursday - weddings
Craft us crazy - anything goes
Teddy Bo - love is in the air
Anything goes - celebrations
Bearly mine - bling
Critter sketch - wedding
Stamptacular - fancy folds
Totally gorjuss - going round in circles
I began by colouring in Teddy Bo and Bea in sepia tones to match the gold sequin hearts. The actual shaker piece is the plastic covering for the red thin super sticky tape. I them went onto the gallery on Make the cut and found this gorgeous frame. I needed to fiddle with it a bit to get it the perfect fit for my shaker.I them cut it out of punch tape and covered it in gilding flakes. Next came the time consuming job of brushing off all the excess flakes, which wasn't easy due to the frame having so many fiddly bits. I finally cut a shadow mat and glued everything together. The front is finished with card candi by craftwork cards.
The inside was made to repeat the front, only making smaller frames to fit the wedding sentiment on. The cream spotty paper is Bo Bunny double dot.
I think that just about covers it all,
