I've been wanting to play with the new Sale-a-bration Love and Happiness rub-ons... and I did tonight! I decided to make a cute shaker card to showcase how you can use rub-ons on slick surfaces such as acetate (aka transparencies). I really like how this card turned out... and it is very blue! Bonus!!! :)
Some sort of step-by-step notes (pics would be better but it is late... maybe next time):
1.) Apply a rub-on to a piece of Aectate.
2.) Punch opening in a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock with 1 3/8" square punch. I punched multiple times.
3.) Adhere acetate to back of Bashful Blue cardstock.
4.) Optional: Add paper piercing, ribbon and brads.
5.) Optional: cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock slightly larger than Bashful Blue cardstock, cut a window in this layer too (although it doesn't have to be perfect since it won't be seen if ya know what I mean). Adhere the two layers together.
6.) Optional: Apply rub-on to white cardstock, cut out and attach to shaker front.
7.) On the back of the shaker front build some walls using Scotch Foam Mounting Tape (or similar product). I did two layers since I was going to use some bulky beads. Make sure the "walls" completely surround the window and that there are no cracks or openings, otherwise all the beads will leak out and then you have an empty shaker and a mess everywhere. :(
8.) Fill shaker with beads
9.) Cut piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than Bashful Blue cardstock layer and apply to back of shaker box to close the whole thing up.
10.) Adhere shaker box to cardbase. I added a some stamping, matting and ribbon to my cardbase before adding the box.
11.) SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!
Other notes: used the slot punch to cut a little opening on the left side of the card base to thread the ribbon through. Edges of Bordering Blue layer were sponged with the same color of ink.
