Two weeks ago Christie challenged the Prettie Girls to use acetate and of course I had to make a shaker card. I just love shaker cards, although they can be a pain in the patootie especially when the beads are not cooperating... hello static!!!
If the color combo looks a bit familiar, well it just might be since it is a Color Challenge that Kristina Werner posted last week (check it out here). The combo is: Pumpkin Pie, Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue and White. Although I did add Kraft to the mix because I wanted to leave the chipboard "m" natural rather than painting it. Yeah, sometimes I am lazy like that. :)
Other notes: I cut an opening in a square of Brilliant Blue cardstock (measure twice cut once) and did the same for the Bashful Blue piece but a bit smaller. After which I paper pierced the outside edge and the inside edge of the bottom. The Bashful Blue was a bit... well... bright so I airbrushed it with a blue Copic marker (love the airbrush tool). These layers were adhered together to create a blue frame.
Next I adhered a layer of acetate to the back of the frame and then on the front of that I glued a Rusty Pickle chipboard letter "m". Then I flipped the piece over and built a wall with strips of foam tape (don't leave any openings or the beads will escape), added some blue micro beads and shut the box shut with a piece of Georgia Pacific white cardstock. I then wrapped a piece of dotted orange ribbon around the box and knotted. Following that up with stamping the sentiment on the top of the box. I added a couple of Prima flowers to the lower left corner and then layered the whole piece on Pumpkin Pie and finally onto the Kraft card base (4 1/4" x 4 1/4").
To finish I stamped the woman from Made with Love on Georgia Pacific white cardstock and colored with Copics. Next I punched out part of her with an 1 3/8" circle punch and adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
