Botanic Hello Shaker Card

Hello! Botanic Hello that is..... Today, I have a card to share that I made for Imagine's current challenge, which is "Movement," made with Mama Elephant's Botanic Hello stamp. The theme had all sorts of ideas swirling in my head, but I decided I really wanted to make a shaker card, filled not just with sequins, but seed beads as well.


I started off by coloring this beautiful image, which I stamped with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black. This stamp may seem daunting at first, but if you break it down into chunks, coloring it can go pretty fast. I started off with the leaves, then the flowers I colored in shades of blue, then the last group of flowers. I fussy cut the image out, then decided to add some glitter to the "hello." Using On Point Glue,  I applied it to the top third of the letter, sprinkled on some glitter, and shook off the excess. I repeated this step twice more to complete the word. On Point Glue dries quickly, but I let it sit aside for a bit while I chose and cut my cardstock colors.

My card base is made out of Grasshopper cardstock and was cut to 6 1/2" x 10." I created my layers with my Sizzix dies and paper trimmer. I assembled the shaker box in the standard way, by applying a piece of acetate to a cardstock frame, adhering foam tape to the back, and applying it to the card base. But, as I mentioned earlier, I added not only sequins, but seed beads as well, which I thought added some great texture, movement and sound to the card. On the frame of my shaker window, I splashed on some Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost.

The card has such a big shaker window...my kids and I ave a hard time not playing with it! Thank you so much for visiting. Have an inspiring day!
