Hi Everyone, and happy Fourth of July! Today I am excited to share this colorful and fun shaker card using Avery Elle Rainbows stamps and dies from 7 Kids Crafts. Unfortunately the dies already are sold out, but the stamp set is still available. (For another cute summer Avery Elle card I posted previously, click HERE.)
I began by die cutting all of the rainbow colors and the white outlines from cardstock. Then I cut the frame from craft foam twice so that I could have deeper channels for the shaker beads. (HINT: If your shaker cards don’t have much movement or the beads get stuck, it’s usually because it doesn’t have enough room to move easily. Try doubling the thickness of the foam for better shakability!) I used Gina K. Connect glue, and I love how easy it was to adhere everything to the light blue card base.
Next I adhered the white outline cardstock to an acetate panel using 1/8″ Scor tape, and then stamped the sentiment in the MISTI using StazOn Pigment ink. Have you used this new StazOn? Wow! It dries so quickly and gives a crisp stamp!
I used pretty, colorful beads to match each rainbow cardstock color in the channels, and then added sequins in the clouds.
Finally, I added another layer of Scor tape to adhere the acetate over the shaker beads, and glued the sparkly raindrops to the card.
What do you think? Isn’t this a fun card? I love how it turned out, and I hope to either Copic color or watercolor the stamped rainbow for a card soon. Love and crafty hugs!
