It's Easter Theme Week at Pretty Pink Posh and today I have 2 very similar shaker cards to share with you.
For the first card, I took a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel and ink blended the top with Kitsch Flamingo and the bottom with Cracked Pistachio distress oxides. I splattered white and gold paint for added interest. I then ran the Scallop Ovals die in the center of the panel to make a frame for my shaker card. I adhered clear acetate to the back of the panel and before adding the foam tape, I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment onto the acetate using Staz on Ink. Next, I added the foam tape around the frame. My favorite one is from Heffy Doodle, as it is thicker than the 3M tape and there's no need to double stack to create the well for the shaker elements.
I then made my A2 card base and ink blended with Antique Linen distress ink. For the shaker, I used PPP Sherbet Clay Confetti mixed with Sunshine Yellow seed beads. I love the way the shaker beads sound!
Now that the base for the shaker card is ready, I stamped, color, and cut the Easter eggs from the new Spring Eggs stamp set, the cute girl in bunny costume from the Easter Friends stamp set, and the ribbon from the Easter Bunnies stamp set. I used Copic Markers in pastel colors for a soft look. Lastly, I adhered the images onto my card.
For the second card, I stenciled the front with the Easter Background stencil in the same inks I used above. The shaker bits I used are Sugar & Spice Clay Confetti, seed beads in Blue Sky and Azalea Pink. The adorable bunnies are from Bunny Friends.
I hope these card inspire you to create Easter cards for your friends and loved ones. Thank you so much for stopping by!
