Project Inspiration

Today, I'll be showing you how you can recycle packing to create really easy shaker cards.

20220221 143536 1
I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then placed Double Rainbow Stencil over it and inked through using Pink Pearl, Chamomile, Minty Mint, Volcano Lake, and Wisteria Inks. I removed the stencil before embossing the panel using Flower Bed 3D Embossing Folder.  Once embossed, I then placed the stencil back into place and inked again, this time using Coral Bliss, Snapdragon, Sweet Leaf, Lagoon, and Hydrangea Inks. To add a little more interest to the embossed design, I swiped over a white pigment ink pad.

20220221 143539 1For the shaker element, I took a piece of old packaging. I adhered this to the back of the card panel using super sticky tape. I adhered 3 of the sides before adding in some Satin White Sequins, then I adhered the last part. The sentiment is from Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp Set.
