Hi, all! I'm back with a fun card that uses gorgeous products from the Inspired By Stamping online store. We are featuring our favorite techniques this week, and I chose to make a shaker card...with some faux stitching! :) Come and take a look...
The shaker portion was made using stamps from the Garden Seed Packets stamp set. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The window was cut using the Fancy Labels 3 dies. I think shaker cards are super fun, and this seed packet was screaming to be made into one!
I used a variety of patterned papers and some fun cotton ribbon to finish this card up. The faux stitching was created with a fine tip Sharpie pen. I just love faux stitching--it looks real most of the time, but without having to get a machine out. ;)
The inside of my shaker is filled with some fun, bright, springtime fresh sequins that match the colors of my patterned papers. I think it's really enjoyable to choose a fun shaker filling! This one was pre-made, luckily, so all the guess work was taken out of it and I could work on pairing all the patterns together.
I really like the way this turned out! The colors are fresh and fun, and I actually really like the way I colored the flower. :) What do you think? I'd love to hear in the comments below!
I'm entering this card into these fabulous challenges~
