Animal Cards, Feel Good Cards

Thinking Of You


Hi there, I hope you’re having a good day!

Today I’m sharing a shaker card using the McGregor’s Garden stamp set from Hello Bluebird.  I think I’ve only ever made two shaker cards before, but when I saw all these little vegetable images, I had to give it another shot.

I started by stamping all of the images onto Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink.  Then I colored them all in with a variety of colors.  The bunny is E50 and E53, with a bit of R30 for the ears.  I cut all of the pieces out using a Brother ScanNCut2 and set them aside.

For the background, I blended Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks onto an A2-sized piece of Strathmore Bristol Smoothe cardstock, creating a very loose scene of a grassy hill, blue sky, and a yellow sun.  Then I used the largest die from My Favorite Things’ Stitched Arch STAX die set.  I adhered the fallout piece to another panel of cardstock and added foam tape around the arched shape and over the rest of that panel.

I put all but six little vegetables into the open space and then laid a piece of Hero Arts acetate over it to seal them in.  Then I adhered the die cut panel over the acetate.

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink.  Then I adhered the bunny and the remaining six vegetables over the panel and acetate, arcing the veggies so it looks like she’s juggling them.

Finally, I adhered the entire piece to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting!
