MINI SHAKER – using your paper scraps!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s use up some of our pretty paper scraps and create a mini shaker element for today’s card! We can begin by die cutting a rectangle panel using the Ai Nested Rectangle Die Set (5724). Now let’s grab some of our leftover paper scraps…I’m using my scraps from the Ai Easter Paper Pack (5742). We will be cutting these papers into 1/2″ strips and attaching them to the front of this rectangular panel. You can place your strips either horizontally or vertically or even on an angle. By using a pretty paper pad like this one, you can be sure that all of your paper strips will coordinate very nicely with each other!

Now we can die cut a larger rectangle with that same die set using the Lawn Fawn Sparkle Cardstock in Pixie Dust and then layer these panels onto the front of our card base.

Next let’s stamp and color our little pup. This image is from the Ai Birthday Journal Set (5722) which is part of the newer Watercolor Journal Series! This sweet image was colored in using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Tea Rose, Aquamarine Blue, Lilac, Lt Gray Platinum Brown. We will fussy cut this image with our detail scissors.

Now we can build the MINI SHAKER element…so much fun! We will be using the Ai Journal Oval Frames Set (5588) for the scallop circle and the Ai Nested Circle Die Set (5726) to create the scalloped frame. In this video I will show you how to assemble this little shaker element for your card! It’s very simple and easy to do!!!

Next we can die cut several flowers from the Ai Journal Oval Frames Set (5588) and some little white sprigs from the Ai Journal Rectangle Frames Set (5591).

Let’s assemble the shaker with the flowers and sprigs for a pretty little arrangement at the bottom of the shaker. And we can repeat the sparkly gems that we used inside the shaker on the center of each of the flowers!

Going back to the Birthday Journal Set we can die cut the “Celebrate” sentiment that is included with this stamp set. We will use the same sparkle cardstock and attach this to a delicate piece of vellum paper. This will give our sentiment a more elegant look!
