SHELLebrate - Shaker Card

Good morning everyone!

It's Pam here to share a shaker card that features an adorable little mermaid from the Mermaid Birthday Clear Stamp Set from the July release.

I stamped this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card, colored her with the following Copic Sketch Markers, and fussy cut her out.

Skin:  E04-11/21/00/000/0000-R20/30/00
Hair:  RV55/52/02/10/00/0000-BV20
Tail:  BG09/05/02/01/000-RV00
Fish:  YR15/Y35/Y11-000, YG25/03/01/00, V04/01/00, Lips:  RV55

I started with a 4" square white card base, added a white layer that was 3 7/8" square, and a pink layer that was 3 3/4" square.

For the inside piece of the shaker element, I inked up a piece of white cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink, added the Shellebrate sentiment from the same stamp set, and cut it into a circle.

To create the outside circle frame, I taped two of the circle dies together with purple tape; and then while they were taped together, I cut the frame out of the starfish print paper.  I then cut two more of the circle frames out of white craft foam.   I cut one plain circle shape of clear acetate.  I taped the clear acetate to the back of the starfish frame with Scor-Tape 1/4 inch.  I used the same tape to adhere the two layers of foam tape to the back of the same piece.  Once I had the shaker bits in the center of the blue sentiment circle, (keeping still so I didn't lose any of the pretties), I then taped it down to the actual card.
