Shaped and Shaker Cards

Hi, crafty friends. I have two cards to share today that were so fun to create. One is a shaped card and one is a shaker card…
For both cards, I applied six different colors of ink through THESE stencils to create a rainbow pattern. I like to start off with a 6×6 piece of white cardstock (the same size as the stencil). That way, I can cut out the section I want and have leftovers.

To create the first card…

I cut THIS die from black glossy cardstock and adhered a piece of acetate behind the opening. I cut the die from paper and used it as a guide to adhere the center pieces into place. I used the shadow die and cut it from a piece of fun foam and adhered it behind the opening. I filled it up with some shaker bits and adhered the stenciled background behind it so it would peek through the window. I stamped a sentiment from THIS stamp set and used THIS coordinating die to cut it out and adhered it below the window. Next, I adhered the entire shaker piece to a white note card. I added a few thin strips of holographic paper along the top and the bottom and added some stars cut with THIS die from the left overs from the stencil piece.

For the second card…

I die cut the remaining stenciled background using THIS die. I also cut a star from white cardstock to use for the inside of the card. I adhered THIS die cut sentiment that I cut out for the first card and adhered it to a white die cut for a drop shadow. I adhered that to the star as well as a few of THESE die cut stars that I used on the first card.

To make it a shaped card, I scored a line on the white star die cut on the left hands side and only put adhesive above it, creating a hinge to easily open and close the card. I also stamped the same sentiment from the first card on the inside.
For both envelopes, I applied a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks through THIS stencil on the flap to tie everything together.

Thank you so much for visiting today. Happy crafting!
