Sealed with a Kiss

Hi, it's Ann here with a Valentine Day card - using some fun little seals by Lawn Fawn to make a watery shaker card.



I'm sure you have all seen how to create a shaker card, but for those of you who like to see processes in writing, here is how I created my card:


  • Create a watery background spongeing through a wavy stencil (I can't find the maker of this one I'm afraid) - I used Distress Oxides in Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio.
  • Cut out a frame - you could use two sizes of a rectangle stack, or any shape you like.  I liked the scallop border on my stitched frame.
  • On a piece of blending card, a smidge smaller than the outside of the frame, stamp the two seals.  Colour them with Copics - a very quick thing to do, using just 2 or 3 shades of grey.
  • I 'grounded' the seals by drawing in some ice flows - also to give some colour behind them.
  • Adhere a piece of window/acrylic sheet behind the frame.
  • Adhere the speech bubble sentiment in place then adhere the stamped panel to the card front, having checked that the frame will cover it all, then add foam tape (2 layers) completely around the panel - leaving no gaps for sequins/confetti to fall through.
  • Add your choice of confetti to the centre of the stamped panel.
  • Use a microfibre cloth to thoroughly clean your window sheet, then carefully place over the foam tape, to secure the shaker element.
  • Stamp a sentiment on a small piece of card and adhere to card front.  To accentuate the pun, I used a Teal ink to stamp the first word.  
  • Add some coordinating hearts.
Thanks so much for visiting today - and happy crafting!
