Sweet Friend Shaker Card
by Sue McRae
Hello crafty friends! I’m finishing off my summer posts with this sweet ice cream shaker card. It’s still really hot where I live and am looking forward to the cooler fall temps!
This card is a mini slimline, my first time making one! Using the Whittle Ice Cream Cone, I die cut it five times from white card stock.
I took the cones and inked them up with Distress Ink. Here’s a little tip for you. To prevent your ink pads or die cuts from sliding around when you’re trying to ink blend, lay them on a Silpat or silicone baking mat. The texture of this mat grabs the ink pads and die cuts and keeps them in place. No more inky fingers! They are inexpensive at Amazon.
They also come in this style. Works the same way.
For the background of the ice cream I inked up a piece of white card stock with Distress Inks and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer and texture.
I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the cones and added foam tape. I used clear seed beads for my shaker bits then attached the rainbow inked panel on top.
For the sparkly lines on the card front, I sprinkled clear iridescent glitter over two lines of double sided tape and burnished it in with my fingers.
The sentiment was created with the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet. These letters are a great size for card fronts and the die cuts several of each letter at once. It’s a great way to customize your cards and it also comes in lowercase.
I attached my panel to a light grey card base and it’s all done!
This card could be used as a birthday card, missing you or just to say hello.
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you have a wonderful week!
