Hello Ai Fans !!
It’s Crystal here , today with a heavy heart I am making my card for my last post with Ai , my term has come to an end and I must say good-by , I hope you have enjoyed my creations and will still come visit me on my blog www.8upscrapin.com ,come by and sign up with your email to keep seeing my posts . Today’s card is a shaker card using Penguins , Sledding Penguins sku#Q3062 and Decorating penquins sku # T3055 and Merry Christmas sku#G4166 .
I am going to walk you thru how I made this card
first I stamped the Sledding Penguins sku#Q3062 and then make a mask of that image
next I lay mask of the stamped image and ink up only the tree on the Decorating penquins sku # T3055 and stamp the tree over the sledding image
now I have a tree behind my sledding image
next I need a foam frame to seal in my goodies for my shaker card , so to do this I use two sizes of my oval die and cut a ring from fun foam , I also used the biggest of the two dies and cut an oval from plastic ( I use the plastic my dies or embossing folders come in )
I color my image and the used glossy accents to glue foam frame to image cut , add in my shaved ice flakes and diamond dust for shaker stuff , add glossy accents and top with the plastic oval
next I use the smallest die to make a frame to cover my image use foam tape at corners to keep frame level at corners
add the snowflake frame over the oval the enclosed shaker again glossy accents to adhere shaker to paper frame ( I use glossy accents because it works best for gluing plastic )
my next tip .. when punching snowflakes out glitter paper is often too thick to punch so this is what I do , I use Sizzix adhesive sheets to add glitter to my punches , first peel one side if the adhesive off and adhere to paper , punch your shape then peel off the other layer of adhesive sheet and sprinkle on glitter , rub in to glue and there you have it a perfect glitter shape and no harm to your punch . I got my adhesive sheet from Stampin Up
my finished card
inside my card I stamp the Merry Christmas then I mask it off and stamp my decorating penguins over it
