Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Shake it
Curtain Call - Birthday Bash
Those great crepe paper balls. Those colors! How 'bout a birthday bash with cupcakes? And sequins.
This is the first shaker card I'm actually thrilled about. Amy T. has a good approach to shakers - use glassine bags. But on normal shaker cards I've had an issue with sequins getting stuck on the exposed edges of the foam adhesive behind the acetate. You too?
TIP: Die cut two layers of craft foam (on this card I cut two pink square frames (gotta get me some white craft foam) and stacked them)) and use them in place of foam adhesive. No sticky edges for the sequins to stick to!
I also stamped the cupcake in yellow onto the white shaker backing, a tiny bit offset from the black stamped image. You can see it if you look closely. The depth achieved by the height of the doubled craft foam is phenomenal. TIP: Glue two or three sequins onto the shaker backing so the shaker window looks filled even when standing.
Tomorrow I'm casing one of the sweetest CAS cardmakers out there. Ya'll come back now, ya hear?
