Hello there my fellow crafters!
With Easter around the corner I started making Easter cards. I did not want them to be ordinary so I decided to make shaker cards! They so much fun! Making them surely teaches you patience – I cannot remember how many times I had to start again after adhering my foam tape BEFORE the acetate…. haha
Today I have for you also a cardmaking video of these two cards! I hope you will have some time to pop over to my you tube channel and take a look!
If you like it – subscribe – you will make me super happy 😉
I made the cards completely from scratch, including the background. I made that using making tape and distress inks, the same way I made the background for my previous “feel better” card. You can see it better on the video, where I explain everything step by step.
I then made the shakers where I added all kinds of fun stuff like jelly beans, eggs and beads 🙂 All stamped and colours of course 😉
I just realised I forgot to mention which Distress Ink colours I used in the video, you can mostly see or figure out which ones they are but just in case you are wondering:
First card: Mustard Seed, Moved Lawn and Spun Sugar
Second card: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean – some are overlapping creating new colours 🙂
I treated both cards to Wink of Stella and glossy accents – because – never too much!! 🙂
I also used images form Lawn Fawn stamp set – Happy Easter and Inspired by Stamping stamp set Spring Blossoms, which I got using my gift card that I won over at Inspired by Stamping in February – I am still so happy! Thank you!
So here are the finished cards:
*the green on the eggs is the same as the leaves on the tulips but somehow my camera decided otherwise 😉
Here is the video tutorial, just click the image or open my you tube channel 🙂
I will enter the bunny card in the following card challenges:
