Winnie & Walter 4th Birthday Bash - Shaker Challenge

February 1, 2018

Happy February, blog friends!  I hope that the start of your 2018 has been wonderful!  I'm sorry it's been so quiet around should see a lot more of me this month!  And I'm so happy to be back creating!

Today I'm sharing a card I created for the 4th Annual Winnie & Walter Birthday Bash!

Without further ado, let's take a closer look at my challenge! At Winnie & Walter, we don't just celebrate romantic love, we celebrate ALL love!  So my challenge for you this month is to create a shaker card that celebrates some kind of love!!  It could be for your sweetie....for your bestie...or for a random stranger. ;)  {You never might just make their day.}

To start, I diecut the True Multifaceted Heart Cutaway from an ombre shaded patterned paper block..  After popping out all the pieces, I did the inlaid technique and used washi tape on the backside to adhere the diecut heart back into the paper block.  I then covered the back with a transparency, and added 2 layers of foam adhesive to it & set it aside.

Next I diecut the In A Word: Kisses Cutaway four (4) times: three times from white cardstock, and 1 time from patterned paper.  I adhered the 4 layers together to give the sentiment dimension & rigidity.  I then stamped the first part of the sentiment in Delicata Golden Glitz ink (SS|EH) using the Sending You with Evelin Tee stamp set to a thin strip of white cardstock.  Next I lightly marked where the "kisses" diecut would overlap the strip, then cut banner edges to each end.

 After making an A2 card from heavyweight white cardstock, I added a mix of jewels & sequins to the middle and then adhered the ombre paper block to the top. I layered the sentiment over top of a knot of gold thread using liquid adhesive & foam tape.  To finish, I accented with a glitter heart sticker & my usual jewels!

The papers that I used for this card are older, so I wasn't able to link them below.  They are the 6x6 papers from the Hello, Love collection by Crate Paper.  While you may not be able to purchase the physical papers any longer, you can still get the Hello, Love digital collection.  Other than that, all products used will be linked below!

I hope that you will join in the fun with us this month for the W&W 4th Annual Birthday Bash, and that you will take my love themed shaker challenge!!
