Hi there, I have another card for you featuring the January Card Kit by My Favorite Things.
And the good news is, the Kit is available right now! Yay!
For todays card, I wanted to create a scene at the beach where someone will find a happy little surprise in a bottle.
I started by creating an ink blended ocean background. The stencil (included in the kit) is just perfect for this and can be used for many more water themed projects. Next, I die cut a stitched rectangle border to my ocean panel for a bit of interest. I die cut another piece of card stock for the sand. I used a curved stitched line as well as (in a second step) the stitched rectangle I used before. I glued the sand piece unto the ocean piece and let the glue dry.
Next, I wanted to create the shaker part of the card. I die cut the bottle from my background piece (= ocean with sand). Then, I put the background piece on a white card base to find the perfect spot to glue the die cut bottle piece into place. This will be the background of my shaker bottle later. I wanted to bottle to be transparent so that you could see the sand and ocean trough it.
I glued the shaker pouch into the window, filled it with sparkly crystals and heart confetti and glued everything in place. - I'm very sorry if you feel confused now. It would be so much easier to show this in a video but I do not have the skills or equipment for this at this point. You could look for shaker cards on YouTube. There are some awesome tutorials on the MFTstamps channel like this one from Laura Bassen: Cup of Love Shaker Card.
I finished up my card by stamping a sentiment on a white piece of card stock. Unlike yesterdays card, I did not put the sentiment into the bottle but I glued it on top. And I also added some die cut tropical leaves to create the look of a beach with palm trees.
I hope you like these Card Kit products as much as I do. Check out the wonderful projects my teamies made. They are so pretty and creative! You just have to hop over to the MFT Blog for more inspiration.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a colorful day,
