It's been some time since I made a shaker card so I thought I'd use this tangled flower stamp to make one. The flower comes with three different patterned leaves so you can build up your own design.
Using alcohol markers I coloured the leaves and flowers as well as the white edge, this edge was coloured in grey green because the white looked too bright. The stamen dots have been foiled using the 2in1 glue pen and transfer foils.
The next step was to cover the opening with acetate, then surround the opening with foam tape to build the bead enclosure, with some extra foam in the corners of the box for support.
I wanted to add some tiny butterfly sequins to the micro beads but couldn't find any so I used some tiny flower gems instead.
With the card in place I folded the edges over to form the box and stuck them down. To tidy it all up I cut a backing card to cover all the edges and added a small card stand so it will sit up just like a small picture frame would.
The backing is white so it could be written on or you could add a small tag to the back so it can be removed and the card kept for display.
While I have all the bits and bobs out I think I will make a few more shaker cards ready for the Christmas card stash.
