Hello hello! Today I'm sharing an any-occasion card that is sure to make someone smile. For my card, I’m using the new Umbrella Shaker Die and the previously-released Spring Foliage Dies. What I love about this card is that there’s no Copic coloring involved. Yay!
To begin, I inked through the Grid Stencil with Salvaged Patina on a 4.5” square white cardstock. With the remaining ink on my brush, I ink blended through the white areas very lightly. I then took scraps of white cardstock and ink blended them with various Distress Oxide Inks, sprayed them with water that has a bit of white ink, and used these papers to cut out the flowers and the cute little sign. For the umbrella, I gave it a pattern by inking through the Medium Polka Dots Stencil.
Here are the inks I used for this card:
Panel: Salvaged Patina
Umbrella: Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed
Label: Vintage Photo
Flowers: Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold, Dusty Concord, Kitsch Flamingo, Milled Lavender, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron
I hope that you’ve enjoyed my card using the Umbrella Shaker Die. As the name suggests, you can make a shaker card with this die. I’m sure I’ll be playing with this again. Have a great day!
