I love colour and bright colours especially 😍. The drab grey days of winter are just mehh to me. My antidote is to create bright bold cards 😁 . So for today's Throwback Thursday project I've chosen bright bold colours and a new take on an old favourite the shaker card! Using the fabulous Honeybee Home stamps I set to work.
I started by die cutting an appature from a piece of bright green cardstock. Called granny apple green it's such a bold happy colour. I then placed the mat ontop of my card base front and die cut it out again. I saved the inner pieces to use later.
I then cut a mat of vellum the same size as the green mat. I used the new hive 3d embossing folder to emboss the vellum. I also cut a piece of acetate the same size.
Next I adhered the vellum over the appature on the card front. I then place strips of double-sided tape onto the edges of the vellum. Now for the fun bit adding the sprinkles. As this is going to be a flat shaker card it is best to chose flat sprinkles or sequines or glitter. I chose to use the pretty Shaker shapes as they are flat and are such pretty colours 😍. I added a good pinch of them to the center of the vellum after removing the backing from the tape . Next I carefully placed the acetate on top creating a sandwich with the sprinkles as the filling.
With the sprinkles secured I placed the green mat over the shaker element. I used double sided tape again as it sticks well to the acetate.
To decorate the front I die cut the appature again in white cardstock but this time I die cut a stitched rectangle from the center of it to create a frame. I then placed this frame into the appature. Again I kept the die cut center to use later. I then stamped and cut out some flowers from the Honeybee Home stamps as well as bees and a sentiment.
I love the way this card came together..
And the inside is where I used the left over die cut pieces.
All in all a fun card and here's a little video of it in action..
