Snowy Shaker Card with Hero Arts

Hello! Thank you for stopping by. Today, I am giving you a sneak peek into some of the fun to come next Saturday, November 11 for a day full of Christmas Cards using Hero Arts stamps, cardstock, inks, embellishments and more!

Here's how I created this card project:

1. Using Gina K Designs 120 lb Base Weigh White card stock, I made an A2 sized card base.

2. Cut out a piece of 5 1/8" X 3 3/4" layer of blue card stock from the Hero Arts Sea Mix Layering Papers. Cut a piece of Gina K Designs 5/8" White/Gold Fancy ribbon that is slightly longer horizontally than the vertical of the blue card stock and adhere it to the layer (centered).

3.  To make the frame for the shaker, I used two Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Stitched Rectangles Frames Dies. I placed them together on the die cutting plate on top of the Gina K Designs 80 lb Layering Weight White card stock and ran it through the die cutting machine.  

4. Cut out a piece of 4 1/2" X 3" of Hot Off The Press Heat Resistant Acetate and a piece of 4 1/2" X 3" of Gina K Designs 80 lb Layering Weight White card stock.

5. Take the Hero Arts Snowy Scene stamp, flip it so that the rubber side is facing up. Then, take the Hero Arts Ombre Mermaid ink

6. Apply inked stamp to card stock layer and apply pressure. Because this stamp is thicker in terms of the overall image, I tend to apply slightly more pressure and leave the stamp on the paper for a few more seconds to allow the ink to fully transfer over from the stamp.

7. Adhere Crafty Foam Tape by Scrapbook Adhesives all around the perimeter of the stamped layer. Cut of any excess. 

8. Use some artificial snow or sparkles to simulate snow. I used Crafty Sparkles. It does not appear that they are made any longer.

9. Emboss the sentiment on the Heat Resistant Acetate. I used the
Gina K Designs Fine Detail White Embossing powder.

10. Adhere the frame to the acetate and place on top of the stamped layer with the crafty foam tape. I used my Glue Dots Adhesive tape runner.

11. On the back of the shaker layer, place a pop up square in each corner to adhere the shaker to the blue layer on the front of the card. I am using the Scrapbook Adhesives 3D Foam Squares.

12. Adhere the shaker layer to the card base.
