Hello! Happy Friday!
Just a reminder for those that have RSVP'd, card class is tonight!
I don't know about you, but I love the Big Shot! If you are a bit of a lazy crafter like me you probably love the Big Shot too! I mean, who would want to spend so much time hand cutting something that could be die cut in less than half the time and with SO much more precision! It's cards like this one that make me love the Big Shot even more because I would never endeavor to make something that looks this complicated! And the real beauty is that I could make a hundred of these cards and my hands would not cramp up from cutting them all!
How To Make It:
Now, this shaker card starts with a cardbase of Whisper White THICK cardstock. It's a must for the extra 'weight' this card will be carrying. Next, die cut the santa using the Big Shot (of course!) and the Detailed Santa Thinlits dies– I also used the Precision Plate for better detailed cutting and the die brush to help take the die cut out of the die!
Then, on the back of the die cut, add some Tear & Tape adhesive around the frame of the die cut, peel off the adhesive backing and add a square of clear Window Sheet, then cover the frame again with Foam Adhesive Strips making sure there are no openings in the foam strips- you don't want any stuff shaking out of the frame!
Stamp the sentiment from the Greetings From Santa Stamp set in Basic Black ink at the bottom of the cardfront.
Before we add the Detailed Santa shaker onto the card front, we need to add our shaker fill. I chose to take my Sequin Trims in Bermuda Bay, Gold and Blushing Bride and remove the sequins from the trim. Just enough to add enough sparkle to the shaker card. Carefully place all the sequins in the middle of where you will put your shaker front.
Peel off the Foam Adhesive Strip liners and carefully place the Detailed Santa die cut over the sequins and press down on the edges to ensure a good seal.
As a final touch, place a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive along the bottom of the Detailed Santa die cut, remove the liner strip and add the Sweet Sugarplum Glitter Ribbon. Use a Glue Dot to add a little knot of Glitter Ribbon to the front of that ribbon strip to make it look like it's tied.
