Floral Shaker Card ft Concord & 9th

Hello everyone!

Back on the blog today with a new card & video, sharing a shaker card that I made using this gorgeous stamp set from Concord & 9th, called Crazy Awesome.

I did a bit of watercoloring with my Gelatos, that I really seem to like lately and it makes me happy to see that I get to use some of my supplies that I haven’t been using in a while! It happens so often to simply forget about the things I have, lol:)

So I started by stamping the floral cluster from the stamp set by following the circle that I have traced onto my watercolor cardstock. As always, I used my Canson paper. I also did some masking as I wanted to have more of those flowers stamped and that just filled my floral wreath.

I really like the big circle stamp from the set, and because I wanted to incorporate it into my card, I stamped it and white heat embossed it on a piece of vellum. With all my elements ready, I created my shaker and mounted all onto a cream card base.

I had several try outs on this card and learned along the way where I kept making my mistakes. I just couldn’t get all those circle windows match with eachother and with the large circle stamp. So I used my MISTI and that made all so easy!

As always, you can check the how-to video right here on my blog or HERE if you wish to watch it on YouTube.

    I know my comment is late, but maybe it will find its way to you! You mentioned that this was the first time you were shaping your foam tape around your circle shaker. The trick to making it into beautiful, smooth rounded curves is to first double the tape so that it is two layers thick, then cut it in half the long way, so you have two long skinny strip. Cut it into manageable lengths of 6 a 8 inches, then remove both sides of the backing paper. This skinny foam will form to the curves you want so easily you’ll want to add a raised circle to every card. Hope this helps you or another viewer! Lovely card!
