I've been wanting to do a shaker card for an age, but I have to admit I was a little intimidated about making one. I shouldn't have been! It was fun! I think I'll try to make them on a regular basis from now on. That's what I've really enjoyed about starting a blog and joining different challenges. I've learned a lot of great new techniques.
So this card is on a 5x7 orange base. The red background paper and the school words paper were each cut just slightly smaller than the last so that all 3 papers can be seen. I glue taped the red paper to the pattern paper and cut out a window with my Spellbinders Classic rectangles. Then I cut out a piece of transparent cardstock with the next size bigger rectangle and adhered that to the back of the red cardstock with micro glue dots on the edges. I did a double layer of foam tape all along the edges and added some different colors of sequins to match my color scheme. Then I stamped the crayon box from Hero Arts "Good Work" clear stamp set and colored it with my Copics before fussy cutting it. I added that to the shaker window and then adhered the whole card front with foam tape.
I stamped the school bus from the same Hero Arts clear stamp set and fussy cut it before adhering it with foam squares. For the chalkboard tag, I stamped the chalkboard outline and the "Back to School" sentiment (also with the Hero Arts "Good Work" stamp set) with Color Box "Frost White" ink and then adhered the tag with foam tape. I added a few clips to match the school theme, and that's all there was to it!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
