Hello and welcome to today's project, which is this pretty fairy shaker card that I have designed using some of the brand new Faraway Forest range of stamps and dies by Daisy Mae. The range was kindly sent to me by Craft Stash, in order to prepare some sample cards, ready for presentation on the Hochanda Channel on 25th January.
So if you are a fan of fairies, this product range by Daisy Mae, designed by the mega talented Clare Rowlands could be right up your street.
I have always loved making shaker cards - but I have had a few disasters in my time! So my top tips are to make sure you create enough depth for your sequins or whatever medium you wish to use, so that they can move about freely within the "window". I used three layers of foam adhesive tape for my card. Also be sure to apply a Powder Tool of some sort generously around the inside edges of your window. This will ensure that any sticky residue from your foam tape/strips is disabled so that the shaker contents don't adhere all around the sides once you have put your project together. In my video, you will note that I apply my Powder Tool generously before popping on my sequins. I then give them a little shake around to see if there are any "sticky" areas. If there are, then I simply move the sequins aside and shake some more of the powder over the offending area. Once I am happy that most of the sequins will move around freely, I stick the whole project down. Then give it a good old sh ...... sh........ sh.........SHAKE!
I used a selection of Nuvo Alcohol Marker Pens by Tonic Studios, plus some pretty background paper from Stamperia. Its a 12 x 12 pack of 10 double-faced sheets.
This is my step by step video showing you the process I followed in order to make my card:-
