Hello, hello! Samantha Ziegenfuss here with a mer-mazing shaker card to share with you.
Shaker cards are my absolute favorite type of cards to make. I could sit and play with them all day long.
I love the Inked Girls and the Samantha stamp in particular holds a special place in my heart.
I stamped, colored, and masked the Samantha image to a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock. I did some simple ink blending over it with a stencil and lightly spritzed it with water to create an even more oceanic look.
I die cut an oval from a piece of 4″ x 5.25″ blue cardstock and stamped “I love you and I like you” from the Snarks and Recreation stamp set to the lower right corner. I adhered acetate to the back of the frame with strong double sided adhesive tape.
Onto a white A2 sized card base I adhered a piece of 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ gold foil paper. Over that I layered my stamped and ink blended panel. I then applied a border of foam tape along the outside of the panel to create a well for my Flat Back Half Gems in Patti Violet.
I used a white gel pen to add a border of dots around the oval frame for added definition.
I’m so happy with the way this turned out and I am just loving these beautiful gems in my shaker cards.
