What a great challenge we were set this week over at Sunny Challenges & Creations. All we have to do is create a Shaker Card – NO layout!!!!! If you are like me, then I haven’t created one for so long that I can’t remember the last time I did one.
Base Card – Chocolate Chip – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Cherry Cobbler – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 3 – Chocolate Chip – 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ or 8.5cm x 8.5cm
Layer 4 – Very Vanilla – 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ or 8cm x 8cm
Layer 5 – Window Sheet or Acetate – 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ or 8cm x 8cm
Stamp Set – Petite Pairs, Nature Walk
Ink – Chocolate Chip
Cardstock – Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
DSP – First Edition Speciality
Ribbon – 1/2″ Seam Binding – Cherry Cobbler, Crochet Trim – Victoria
Punches – 2 1/2″ Circle
Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Glimmer Brad – Champagne, Glass Stampin’ Glitter – Gold (Retired), Stampin’ Markers – Marina Mist & Old Olive, Mini Glue Dots
I randomly stamped images over the DSP with Chocolate Chip Ink, prior to adhering to the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. I ran a piece of Cherry Cobbler Ribbon across the middle, tucked ends under & adhered to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.
For my window, I inked my image with Stampin’ Markers – Old Olive & Marina Mist, stamped direct onto Very Vanilla, inked my sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink & stamped onto the same piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I placed my images onto the Cardstock, so that they would be able to be seen once I had adhered the top piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock.
As I didn’t have any Double Sided Mounting Tape
, I made my own. I applied Sticky Strip
all around the outer edge of my stamped piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock
, ensuring that all sides were covered. I cut 2 pieces of thick Cardboard
– from the Glitter Paper
– & adhered to the tops of the Sticky Strip
, ensuring that all areas were covered as I didn’t want any pieces of the glitter to escape, applied another layer of Sticky Strip
, carefully poured Glitter onto my image – not too much as you don’t want it to take over – punched a circle into the middle of the Chocolate Chip Cardstock
with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch
, adhered the Window Sheet
to the wrong side & then finally to the top of the Sticky Strip
. I applied Stampin’ Dimensionals
to the back of this piece & adhered to the card.
I tied a bow with the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, found 2 small pieces of Crochet Trim that happen to be in the same container as my Ribbon & decided to use them as well. A Glimmer Brad was attached to the middle & finally adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots.
