Well it’s been a little while but I’m back creating with the AddInktive Design Team! Bronwyn has been busy creating lots of fabulous tutorial’s and we shall be seeing many more this year as she has retired from her “real” job and will be focusing on her SU business. (I wish I could too!!, Jealous much!!)
So I wanted to have a play with the new Mermaid Shaker Box card that Bronwyn has created. Check it out here.
I don’t have the Myths and Magic suite so I went through my 2018 Occasions catalogue to see what I could use instead. I decided to use the Flying Home stamp set which I received for free at Centerstage (a leadership event) at Onstage in November.
I recently purchased the Naturally Eclectic card overlays which are in the 2017-2018 Annual catalogue. I had not noticed these until now and they are lovely!! They are 4″ x 6″ acetate overlays in white and gold.
I used the new Gold Glitter flakes as part of my shaker card. Now make sure that you seal it up firmly otherwise those flakes can go everywhere!! (Just ask me how I know!!)
I stamped the images from the Flying Home stamp set onto the Thick Whisper White card stock so that it was a bit firmer when I fussy cut it out. I coloured it in with the watercolour pencils and blender pen.
Oh and I used the Naturally Eclectic DSP as well.
The sentiment comes from the Bird Banter stamp set and I used the Classic Label punch (but re-punched the ends so that I had a banner end).
If you would like to make this gorgeous box card, you can purchase the tutorial from Bronwyn, here.
I’d love to hear what you think of this card. Oh and in case you were worried how this fits into an envelope, it does fold flat and fits into a standard size envie.
