Art Impressions Edge-to-Edge Graduation Shaker Card

Watch the video tutorial here!

Hello Ai Fans!!!

If you are looking for a fun twist on a traditional shaker card you are going to love this edge-to-edge shaker card design! In today’s video and card we will be using the adorable images from the Graduation Set (5277) to create this fun card.

I’ll show you step by step on how to create this design….and it is so easy! But beware….you will become addicted to these fun shakers!

We will also be creating a watercolor resist background with our Reactive Ink Pads and we will color in the images with our Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.

This card was inspired by the current Blog Challenge which is called “Shaken, not stirred!”. The challenge is to include a drink in your card…any kind of drink will do…lemonade, coffee, hot cocoa, or a glass of wine like I did!

Lawn Fawn Graduation Shadow Box Card!

Hello and Welcome!

In todays video and card we will be creating a super fun graduation shadow box card! Our little shadow box will have a stage and an audience and lots of stars to celebrate the graduate!

To create this card we will be using the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box Dies and the Shadow Box Theater Add-on Dies. I also wanted to add an audience in my little theater so I used the brand new Lawn Fawn Tiny Friends Dies. These dies are so much fun to use. I recently used the Tiny Friends on my “Lawn Fawn Car Critters Race – Slimline Card“!

For the coloring today, I will be using my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Alcohol Markers. I will list all of the colors that I used down below.
