Hello, Friends! I’m sharing a shaker card using in-lay techniques with die-cut images today. The focus of my card is the Love Birds and I made it more interest by creating a shaker window framed with the Etched Eucalyptus Wreath.
I created my shaker window first by die-cutting the Etched Eucalyptus Wreath over a white panel and attaching acetate to the die-cut window. I in-lay the die-cut wreath back in over the acetate once it’s adhered in place.
Be sure to watch the video to see how I create this card!
Next, I die-cut the Love Birds die. Before lifting my die from the cutting plate, I popped all the pieces out – keeping them in their place on the cutting plate so that I can use Glad Press’n Seal to hold all the pieces together. I flipped it over and adhered the backside with office tape, pulled back the Press’n Seal and colored the front of the die-cut image with Copic markers. This will make more sense if you watch the video above.
After coloring, I die-cut the Love Bird die 3 more times in white and adhered them together. I adhered this stacked image over my colored one to give it lots of dimension.
Pinks: R81, R85
Teals: BG11, BG34
Peach: YR0000, YR00
Browns: E31, E35
Greens: G21, YG09
To finish, I ink-blended some Mermaid Lagoon ink over the center of a cardbase to add color to my shaker window. I added sequins to my cardbase and sealed my shaker panel using two layers of foam adhesive to give my sequins lots of room to move around.
I hope you enjoyed this project! Thanks so much for joining me today! ~Caly
