I wanted to show you all that you can make a more elaborate card but still make it Clean and Simple. So I put together this shaker card for you. It will be an awesome interactive card for someone!
Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and the MFT Linked Chain Circle Frame die in place so I could put it through my Big Shot. I was careful to use a clean, unmarked plate next to the front of my card to avoid transferring any debris or previous cuts in to the front of my card.
Lawn Fawn glue to attach a piece of acetate to the back of the panel.
double sided foam adhesive and folded it in half along itself to create the raised circle around the window cut out. By having it doubled I have more room for the stuff in the shaker and by folding it in half to make it skinny the tape is easier to work around the circle shape. I added more pieces of doubled up double sided foam tape around the back of the card so that it was all well supported on the card. What you don't see is that this is where I added some clear hole-less beads and sequins from my stash to the interior of the circle. I added a little glue to the double sided tape to allow me a little more "move" time to get my card attached to this front since I was doing it blind... the glue allowed some play time. I also lined up the card front on my grid paper and stood up so I was looking directly down on it to place my card.
MFT You're Rawr-some stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured it with two colour blending using my YG17 and YG23 Copics. I used the die set and my Big Shot to cut it all out. I stamped the sentiment in black Versafine Ink and cut it out to create the flag edge and taped it to the front of the card before laying the dinosaur over top of it. To finish off the card I added some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to the dinosaur and some bling from my stash to the front of the card.
