Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far!
Today I have a birthday shaker card to share with you. I used Sketched Blooms2 Die D-Lites by Spellbinders to make this cute floral shaker card. My daughter's 6th birthday is coming next week and I'm sure she will love this :)!
Spellbinders generously sent me two Die D-Lites die sets to play with. The other set is called Build A Terrarium and I shared a card featuring it recently.
I started off by making the frame with two white blooms. I cut two different flowers using Sketched Blooms2 Die D-Lites from white cardstock and cut the frame using A2 Distressed Edges Card Creater Dies by Spellbinders as well from some white cardstock. I adhered a clear acetate sheet behind the frame and added the blooms on the acetate.
Next I prepared the background. I traced the frame on a A2 sized watercolor panel using a pencil so that I have a guide. I "smooshed" Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover DOX for the green and Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick DOX as the flowers on the background panel. For the sky I blended Broken China and Salty Ocean DOX and splattered pearlized water. I drew grasses using alcohol markers only inside of the frame and blended more green DOX outside of the frame.
I cut one more bloom from some white cardstock and colored the tiny pieces from the die cut using alcohol markers. I stacked two bloom diecuts together on the background panel and inlaid the colored small pieces onto their places.
I then assembled the shaker card. I used some clear iridescent sequins and Passion Flower mix from Lucy's cards to fill my shaker.
The sentiment by Clearly Besotted was stamped in StazOn black ink onto the acetate.
Huge thanks to Spellbinders for inviting me to play with their products!
I had lots of fun!
Thank you everyone for stopping by today!
Have a happy day!
