Shaker Card + Masking

Hello, hello! Today I am sharing with you a clean and simple wedding shaker card for a lovely couple in Australia.

[Supplies are linked at the bottom of the post.]

I first stamped a cupcake from the Carnival Cupcakes stamp set by Mama Elephant on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb as I was going to colour them using Copic Markers. To make a cupcake topper, I chose two critters from the same stamp set and stamped them on the cupcake with some masking. The masks are reusable as they were made of card stocks so I just have to apply some re-positionable adhesive before using. I then coloured them using my Copic Markers and doodled on a bowtie for the bear-groom-bear and a ribbon for the bunny-bride. I fussy cut them once the colouring was done.

For the shaker element, I die-cut a frame using the Stitched Rectangle Frame Die-namics by My Favorite Things. I then glued on an acetate sheet behind the frame. After filling the frame with some heart sequins in silver and red, I adhered it onto my card base using double-sided foam tape. An easier alternative would be applying Stick It Adhesive to the back of some craft foams before die-cutting them. I really love the sound of a full shaker card (which is a close second to Christmas chimes…or wedding bells) so I decided to fill in the frame with more white flat sequins. The background of the shaker element was a patterned paper from American Crafts Polka Dot Party Mini Kit by Becky Higgins. I then glued the cupcake on the bottom right corner of my shaker element.

For the final touch, I die-cut three “Congrats” sentiments using (I believe) a discontinued Provo Craft die in yellow card stock and stacked them together in the centre of the card.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

Hugs, Michelle
