To make this shaker card, I started by stamping and printing out my images from stamp sets: Koala Kindness, Alicorn Happiness, and Action Stamps. I colored the images then added white gel pen accents. I fussy cut out the colored images.
Next, I cut out two panels from the Double Dial Die 2 on a dark and light orange cardstock from my supplies. Then, I cut out the outer panel on striped paper from the Perfectly Precious Paper pack. On green paper from the Perfectly Precious Paper Pack, I cut out some leaves from the Double Dial Die 2 to use as shaker filling.
Using a precision knife, I cut out the center of the dark orange panel to create a frame. With some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide, I inked the top of the lighter orange paper to create a sunset effect. Using the same panel from the Double Dial Die 2, I cut out some clear plastic to make the shaker element. I added scrappy tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the clear plastic. I doubled up some double-sided foam tape and cut it down into strips before adding it to the plastic alongside the frame.
I used my powder tool on the sides of the foam tape and plastic to cut down on static. Next, I added the shaker filler to the middle of the inked panel. I lined up them up and put the pieces together. Now my shaker element is made!
Using tape runner, I attached the shaker element to the panel cut from the Perfectly Precious striped paper. I added a strip of green paper from the Perfectly Precious Paper Pack to the edge of the card blank. Finally, I added the panel to the card blank.
Lastly, I attached the colored images to the scene. I added the flowers to the frame using liquid glue and double-sided foam tape for the overhang. Then, I added the sentiment using scrappy tape. The koala and butterfly directly on the plastic were adhered to the scene using glue dots and double-sided foam tape for the overhang.
