See-Through Window Shaker
Hello there friends! It’s Nina-Marie back again to share a see-through shaker card with you featuring stamps from Newton’s Nook Designs!
I love shaker cards; they are not only fun to play with after creating, but the process of building it is so much fun too! For me there is always something so rewarding after getting the shaker pieces put inside their little well and hearing that awesome “shake, shake, shake” – even if the card isn’t finished yet – that shaking sound is enough to make me smile!
When I first started off this card design, I knew right away I wanted to make a see-through shaker so that the sequins would look as if they are floating in the background. Originally I was going to make this see-through shaker with the Fuse Tool but… I ended up breaking the sequin-filled pocket I had put together and after spending a long time picking up all the sequins and beads that got sent flying across my desk (and floor), I didn’t want to repeat that same process again! LOL. I’m sure we’ve ALL had plenty of things like that happen to us while we are crafting!
But no matter how you make it, to me there is something magical feeling about a see-through shaker; the light, airy feel makes me think of woodland fairies and pixie dust! While I didn’t use fairies on this card, I think the whimsical appearance of this pretty butterfly from Newton’s Nook Designs’ Beautiful Wings stamp set looks absolutely stunning against the shaker. I also used the coordinating die set.
I used Copics to color this butterfly; the colors I used are listed below for reference:
- purples: RV00, V12, V15
- pinks: RV0000, RV23
- mints: G000, YG41
The sequins are all from Lucy’s Cards. I used Iridescent White, Phosphorescence, Cherry Blossom and a bit of Passion Flower.
In the video I have put together for this post, I will be walking you through how I created this entire card from start to finish. It was a lot of fun to put this shaker together (even if I ended up spilling all the sequins across my desk!), and I hope you enjoy watching my process!
