Hello there. I have a silly, but fun card to share this weekend. I don’t know how it happened, but today’s card is another CASE card challenge combined with squares and animals theme challenges.
So my idea was to have the dragon fly into the square shaker and magically change color. So silly, but fun, right? Anyway, I stamped the Diagonal Stripes with Ocean Waves ink onto a white A2 size Stitched Rectangle. I die cut out the square shaker frame in the centre using 2 sizes of Stitched Square dies, then adhered the negative piece to a top folding white card base. To create the shaker layer, I die cut a Stitched Rectangle from white cardstock. I took the smaller of the 2 square dies used to die cut the frame and die cut out the shaker window opening. I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the opening, and added foam adhesive around the perimeter to create the area that will house the sequins. WIth only one layer of foam adhesive, this is a fairly flat shaker card.
I stamped the dragon and firey smoke with black Memento ink onto two 2.5″ square pieces of white Ultrasmooth cardstock and colored with Copics. I stamped the shaker dragon off to the side and colored it red and yellow. The outside dragon was colored in grey and die cut out with the matching die. Next up is putting the shaker portion together. I peeled the liners from the foam adhesive, added the sequins, then attached the red dragon square piece. I trimmed the grey dragon and lined it up with the shaker dragon before adhering the frame
I added more double-sided foam adhesive to the back so the layer doesn’t sag and is flat, then adhered it to the striped card front. To finish, the sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder on a black curve slice diecut.
