I started by cutting down a piece of white cardstock using the rectangle die from the new Dotted Patterns Set 1. I then embossed it using a Polka Dot embossing folder to give it a bit of texture. To create the frame for my shaker, I took the second and third (from the middle) dies from the Dotted Ovals, taped them together and ran it through my Big shot with some grey cardstock. I love the dotted detail you get on both the positive and negative die cuts!!
Before I filled the shaker, I stamped the word, friend, onto the embossed panel. This comes from the And the Fox Says Stamp set. I used a few Fruit Punch Sequins, Pink Lemonade Sequins and some Space Silver Sequins for my shaker bits. I then adhered my frame (with acetate) over top.
I had a scrap of watercolored paper so I took the "hello" die from the new You're so Ranunculus Bundle and die cut it out. This is the perfect size to adhere over the frame!! At this point, I thought I was done, but decided it needed a cute, little critter. So, I stamped, coloured and cut one of the cute lions from the Birthday Lions stamp set. I foam mounted her just under the shaker element.
And, of course, I added a few more Space Silver and Fruit Punch sequins on the panel as well!! I foam mounted the panel onto an A2 cardbase and voila!! Done!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous week!!
