Hi Pinkfresh friends
Thank you for joining me. I have a square shaker card to share with you today that I am sure will inspire you to get crafty!
I haven't made a shaker card in a while but I stumbled across some ready made round plastic domes at my local Michael's store. They got my creative ideas flowing. Knowing that Pinkfresh Studio had released the Circle Florals and the Around the Shape Circles, I couldn't wait to get designing.
To begin, I cute a panel of white card stock 5" x 5". Then, using the Nested Circles Die I cut in the centre of the panel the correct size for the plastic dome. This would then guide where I added the curved sentiment from the Around the Shape Circle set. I heat embossed the sentiment in gold.
On another piece of white cardstock, I heat embossed the Circle Florals.
Using the wonderful coordinating Circle Floral Layering Stencils I coloured the florals in Coral Reef and Fresh Pear as I was aiming for a soft delicate colour combo.
In the centre behind the dome you will see a Coral Reef background. To achieve this, I ink blended a piece of cardstock from my stash with the Coral Reef, then splattered it in gold paint, to compliment the gold embossing powder.
Bringing the elements together, I placed some of the Glacier Jewels in the centre of the ink blended cardstock. I added the dome over the top then, I placed the square die cut panel over the top of the dome. It fitted perfectly!
The Circle Florals fitted nicely around the dome and the sentiment . Then, I attached the whole panel on a card base 10 1/2" x 5 1/4" , scored at 5 1/4".
Finally, some Champagne Glitter Drops just finished the card off nicely.
** I have created a reel demonstrating how this card came together so make sure you check it out over on the @pinkfreshstudio Instagram account.
So, are you gong to design a shaker card now? I hope so! If you do, make sure you tag @pinkfreshstudio so we can see it.
Until next time friends....
