Shaker Gift Card – Birds & Bugs!

Hello and Welcome!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today I’ve got another really cute brand new stamp set to show you! This set is the Ai Birds & Bugs Set (5561) and it includes the sweetest little birds, bees, butterflies, and lady bugs! This set also includes the coordinating dies!

I wanted to show you all of these images on one card…so we will be creating this little shaker gift card! We will add a second stamp set by using the Ai On the Sparrow HL Set (5130) to include a branch for our lady bugs to sit.

To create the frames needed to for the shaker element we will be using the Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543). We will also grab a banner die from this set to stamp and die cut our sentiment. The “A gift for you” sentiment is from the Ai Christmas Sentiments Set (5566).

To set the scene we will stencil a cloudy sky using the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pad in Uncharted Mariner. We can place the four cloudy backgrounds on a cardstock panel….using the frame to line things up perfectly!

Now let’s stamp and color all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Peach Pink, Deep Vermillion, Yellow, Orange, Mustard, Smoky Teal, Haze Blue, Lt Red Grape, Beige, Mid Brown.

We will create the shaker pockets by layering up several frames. Once we have these glued together we can place them on a card panel…lining them up with the sky backgrounds. Now let’s add some pretty glitter in each of these openings and cover this with an additional frame that has a sheet of acetate glued behind it. I’ll give you some tips and tricks for all of these steps as we go along! Now we can close up the shaker element by adding this acetate frame.

Once this shaker piece is complete we can finish assembling the card by embossing a card panel with a beautiful “Geo Screen” stencil. This finished card will measure 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.

We can quickly finish the inside of the card using a scallop rectangle die from that same Ai Journal Template Die Set (5543) and we will stencil this panel to coordinate with the little windows in our card. This will give us a place to write a note or stamp another sentiment.

This set can be used with any of your other stamp sets…these images will be perfect to finish off any scene!
