Another Shaker Card

November 13, 2012

I had such a lot of fun making my first Shaker Card for the Sunny Challenge, I decided to make another.  This time, I have gone a little more elaborate.

I stamped the tree image from Lovely as a Tree across the top of a piece of Whisper White card using Always Artichoke ink, using the second and third impressions, to get the lighter look on the right hand side.  I stamped the same image on another piece of Whisper White card only going in the opposite direction.  I held these two pieces of card with the wrong sides together and punched a hole through both pieces using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  I scored and folded a piece of Always Artichoke card so that it had a right hand opening.  I placed the piece of Whisper White card with the hole in the right hand side on top and used my Scoring Tool to make an impression around the punched opening.  I used the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle punch to punch a hole in the Always Artichoke card around the embossed circle.  This created a space that would be open right through my card.

I stamped the round bauble image from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set three times onto Whisper White card.  I also stamped two other images onto Whisper White card using the same ink.  I punched a 3/4″ Circle from one of the round baubles and then used the matching framelits from the Holiday Ornaments collection to cut all of the images out.  I stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages stamp set onto the card front using Always Artichoke ink.  I drew the hangers for the two ornaments on the left using the narrow end of a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker before attaching the ornaments to the card front.  I punched a 1″ Circle from Window Sheet and  attached it to the back of the round ornament with the hole punched in the centre.  I took a Shaker Frame and attached it over the Window Sheet so that it would not be visible from the front.  I poured a small amount of Champagne Glitter Glass onto the Window Sheet, removed the backing from the Shaker Frame and attached another round ornament to the back, making sure that the image was visible from the front.  I attached a length of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine to the back of the ornament and then attached the last round ornament over the top to make a double sided image.  I attached the Baker’s Twine to the back of the Whisper White card so that the ornament could hang in the cut out circle.  This whole piece was attached to the Always Artichoke card front.

I took the other piece of Whisper White card with hole in it and stamped the greeting from the More Merry Messages stamp set using Always Artichoke ink.  I stamped the two ornaments on the right hand side using Cherry Cobbler ink and drew the hangers using the narrow end of a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.  I attached this piece to the left hand side of the inside of the card, matching the punched holes where the ornament hangs.

I decided to dress up the right hand side so that I could write a message.  Again I stamped the tree image using Always Artichoke ink and the ornaments using Cherry Cobbler ink.  The hangers were drawn in the same manner as before.  This creates a place to write a message and ties the whole card together.   Of course this card took a little time to put together and so I will use it for someone special this Christmas.

There is still plenty of time for you to play along with the Challenge this week, I’d love to see what you can create.

Bye for now, Kris.
