Friend Shaker card

Hello everyone
Good to see you all. Its been really busy and crazy in my house this month. I am juggling between my work and my family and more work than family....and I am not able to blog so much. But anytime I find myself with couple of hours, I just run to my workstation and create something quickly and upload it here with some tutorials for you all.
Today I found fews hours free in the morning and I decided to turn a bling eye towards all the ongoing orders and dispatches and satisfy my creative urge. A few days back, I had got a free haul from ItsyBitsy and It has a stencil, silicon glue, glitter glue and a pigment inkpad in it. I wanted to try them for long and made many unsuccessful attempts. Today is the day when i finally got my hands on them and I made a card using the stencil, pigment pad and the silicon glue. I didn't get a chance to use the glitter glue but will make another project and use it.
Now to the card I have made. It is a shaker card with has the shaker elements inside a tag which I have mounted on the card. Making shaker cards is my thing and that combined with stenciling is like my new favorite technique. I love to stencil any opportunity I get.

Supplies:
  1. White texture cardstock (220gsm)
  2. Pink Cardstock (220gsm)
  3. Chevron pattern paper in green and white from Eno Greetings
  4. Sequins
  5. Golden Micro beads ( Itsy Bitsy)
  6. Green Satin ribbon ( Itsy Bitsy)
  7. White Eyelet ( Itsy Bitsy)
  8. Eyelet punch
  9. Flat pearls in pink and white
  10. Clear acetate sheet ( Itsy Bitsy)
  11. Clear Stamp ( Kaisercraft- Best Friends)
  12. Stencil ( Itsy Bitsy)
  13. Black pigment inkpad ( Itsy Bitsy)
  14. Distress inks ( Abandoned coral, spun sugar)
  15. Ink blending tool
  16. Score board
  17. Foam mounting tape
  18. Silicon glue ( Itsy Bitsy)
  19. White adhesive or red tacky tape
Procedure:
  • I started with making the base of my card using the textured white cardstock cut to standard A2 size( 5.5"by 4.25"). 
  • Then, I took the pattern paper and adhered it to the card base in a offset manner using adhesive.
  • Then for the shaker card, the tag is 3"by 3.5". I have cut the pink carstock and then using a stencil and distress inks, I created the background. I also cut some acetate sheet and front shaker window  frame to fit the tag. I have used silicon glue to attach acetate sheet to the shaker frame.
  • I stamped the sentiment on the background using pigment Black inkpad, added sequins and gold microbeads and adhered the shaker frame using foam adhesive.
  • Then I punched a hole and fixed a white eyelet on the tag. Used some green satin ribbon for the tag. I adhered the tag on the card using red tacky tape.
  • Finished off the front, with some sequins and flat pearls using silicon adhesive.
  • For the inside, I have added some pattern paper and stamped another sentiment from the same stamp set using pigment black ink.
That completes our card. I am putting my card up at Lulupu, Peek-a-boo, CWS , Happily Ever Crafter Giveaway, Ranganjali and Craft Stamper magazine.
Thank you all for reading my post and I hope you all liked it. Keep smiling and have a good day.
