Wishing you Safe Travels - See through shaker card.

Hello all  you wonderful people
Today I have a card for you. I have got really addicted to watercoloring technique and am making as many as I can. So this card is again for a special reason....I have a workout friend who is leaving for USA forever and Monday is her last last with us. So this one is for you Upasana.... I have know her only for a month...and got attached to her...you just connect so easily with some people. She was all emotional and so I have used a sentiment very carefully for this card.....I cleverly swapped a Farewell or W'll miss you with a "Wishing you Safe Travels"

The inspiration for this card comes from Tulle Shaker Cards by Jennifer Mcguire and you can know more about this by clicking the link HERE. I really loved the way she used Tulle...but I have used Clear acetate instead. So this my first try at this type of shaker card and it surely is fun.

I am putting this card up at

So more on to my card, I stamped and heat embossed some flowers, buds and leaves on a watercolor cardstock using some Clear embossing powder. I used distress inks to watercolors all my images and once they dried, I fussy cut them out.
 To make this panel, I started with a standard A2 size card base(A) and 1 white cardstock piece cut to A2 size (B). I stacked them and arranged my spellbinders die and ran it thrice through my bigshot. Then, I cut a acetate sheet bigger than my frame and box folded it in half (Basically it helped me to give room for the shaker elements to move freely inside the window  I have just folded the acetate instead of using 2 pieces so there is no tape on the exposed side. Also, I gave it a small 1/8" gap between the 2 folds lining my edges. I hope I am able to convey well. Rest 3 sides are sealed with dimension foam..) I filled my window with some fun sequins, flowers and clear sparkle from Papericious and then sealed it with foam tape on 3 sides. I adhered this shaker window to my A panel carefully so that one no foam tape is visible from any where and the shaker window is correctly lined up on the edge. The frame is rhombus in shape but the shaker panel is square inside.


Then added more foam tape everwhere else and added the B part over it carefully.I added little black splatters on the front panel using black watercolor and then started layering my flowers and leaves. I did stamp my buds with Memento Dye ink by masking off the flowers and buds and quickly watercolored them as well.
Finished my card with the sentiment stamped with Black dye ink on white cardstock and sqeuins.
I hope you all like my card and will try it out.
That finished my card. I have a small shaker video for it and you can watch it to see how fun this is.
