Here’s our sketch…
I went back to the Special Reason stamp set and bundled Stylish Stems Framelits and called on the So In Love stamp set to help me make a nice Anniversary Card with a fun shaker element. Take a look-see:
I also played along with the Casual Friday challenge with my gold touches.
In the top half of the panel, I used the small splatter image in the Timeless Textures stamp set, and stamped it several time in Bermuda Bay. Before I stamped the panel each time, I stamped it off three times on scrap paper. Then I wrapped a piece of Peekaboo Peach 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon around the seam, as well as the two Baker’s Twines in the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit, securing it all in the back with scotch tape.
For the shaker, I first cut a piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock into a square and cut out the pretty Stylish Stems flowers from the center. Then I added the sentiment from So In Love in Calypso Coral on the bottom. I stamped a few filigree images from Timeless Textures around the flower and sentiment in stamped-off-twice Calypso Coral ink. Finally, I flicked the edges of the panel with a Calypso Coral sponge.
For the bottom of the shaker, I stamped the flower from Special Reason in Calypso Coral. I made a small pile of pretties with some Sprinkles Embellishments and a few from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.
The top of the shaker got a piece of Window Sheet adhered to the back with some Liquid Glue. Then I laid a circle of Foam Adhesive Strips around the edge of the flower cut-out – rubbing the inside edges of the strips with my Embossing Buddy. That lays some powder over the stickiness – making it so your shaker sprinkles won’t stick. I also added a few pieces of the foam on the corners of the square to support the card stock.
I made a bow from two strands of the Cupcakes & Carousels Baker’s Twine, catching one of the little Very Vanilla tassels from the kit in the bow. It’s adhered to the shaker with a Glue Dot. I finished it off with a couple of Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes and the card front was done!
On the inside, I used the flower in the So In Love stamp set, stamping it in stamped-off-once Peekaboo Peach in the middle of a Very Vanilla panel. Over that I added a second So In Love sentiment in Calypso Coral.
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got a couple more So In Love flowers in full strength Peekaboo Peach on the front…
Et Voila! I wasn’t really sure where this card was taking me as I worked thru building it – but I’m really happy with the result. The addition of the Timeless Textures images to the top of the shaker element made a huge – and positive! – difference in the look of the card! Hope you like!
