Hello – Samantha here. Welcome! Today I am sharing a fun shaker card using a few of Joset’s latest stamps and dies. Seriously – this card is NOT as difficult as it looks but its does require a lot of paper!
Step 1: Using cardstock (in different shades of blue) die cut three waves using the Ocean Edges dies. Adhere these (shown below) to a light blue card front measuring 10.5cm x 14.5cm.
Next, Die cut one more of the waves using blue card and then die cut the ocean floor using the Sea Weed die and two shades of yellow card stock.
Step 2: (Optional) Using organza/netted material, trim the top and sides to match the die cut waves and card front edges. Using a sewing machine stitch three sides of the material to the card front, insert a handful of sequins between the material and the card front, sew up the opening.
TIP: If you don’t have a sewing machine to stitch the edges, cut the organza material slightly larger and fold each edge around the card, adhering the material to the back of the card front.
Step 3: Adhere the die cut wave and yellow floor to the card front, overlapping the shaker feature.
Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to light pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Diva). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 6: Using card stock and the microsilk glitter card, die cut the pieces of the mermaid. Using blending card, die cut the face, body and arms.
Step 7: Colour in the mermaids face, body and arms using Copic Markers E00, E000, E01 and R20.
Step 7: Assemble the mermaid. Adhere the pieces together.
Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on yellow card, trim,then adhere it to the card front.
Step 9: Die cut the seaweed and stars. Adhere these to the card front.
Step 10: Embellish the card with a twine bow and some sequins. Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base.
This card would be great with or without the shaker feature. Personally, I love the fun element of shaking the sequins around. I hope you try it at home!
