What I've been up to this week....
Just Add Ink challenge #404
Just Add a Shaker
The challenge was to create or add a shaker element to your card.
I wanted to think outside the square - literally and try something different from the acetate circle or square that I had done many times before.
The Cake Soiree set create a great opportunity for a different shape with the cake shape die.
I decided to use vellum instead of acetate to give a softer look, where the colours behind blended together.
Here's what I came up with....
Here's how I did it:
I cut out the cake outline using the Sweet Cake Framelits in the centre of a piece of card
I cut the branches from the framelits as well as a couple of stamped buds in the matching colours of the floral topper I was going to use on the cake - Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Calypso Coral.
I snipped all the little ends off the branches to create little dots for the shaker element and added the buds with a few silver sequins
I added the stamped vellum to the space made by the diecut, turned it over and sprinkled the shaker mix within the space. I then used the cake cut out piece and laid it over to sandwich the shaker mix against a white background. To seal it all I added another piece of velum over everything.
I added the silver cake stand to the front, stamped the sentiment and then mounted it all on a piece of Rich Razzleberry card.
I mounted it onto the card by using dimensional foam
And lastly, I added the topper which was a pre-cut piece from the embellishment kit.
Love how it turned out and how the shaker mix "colours in" the stamped flowers.
If you want to try it yourself, you can get all the supplies from my shop.
'Til next time, keep crafting!
