Good morning. I have a friend who sells Disney cruises. She likes to send a thank you card to her customers. Over the years, I have made her many types of cards. I had a post on this a while back here. Check it out. Today, I have a new one for her.
It's a shaker card. I thought it turned out well. I started with a card base of Basic Black card stock. It is cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 and folded. This makes the regular A2 envelope size card. I cut a layer of Real Red at 4 x 5 1/4.
Use the Layering Circles Framelits to cut out the mouse shape. You will have to run this through the Big Shot 3 times starting with the largest circles and then cutting each ear. Run it through the Big Shot one more time using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. Dots are big in the Mickey world. I cut a 3 1/2 inch square from a Window Sheet and glued it on the back of my layer. Use your glue sparingly, but with good coverage.
Have you tried the new Foam Adhesive Strips? They are fantastic! You'll need to put a layer of this strip all around the opening you made. Make sure that you do not leave any open areas. It's OK to piece this together as long as you leave no open spaces. The sides of this tape are sticky. Take your Embossing Buddy and rub it around the inner sides of the foam tape to cut down on the stickiness.
Put some of the Metallics Sequins Assortment packs. Put about a teaspoon or so. They need room to shake.
Carefully pull off the paper from the tape and adhere a piece of 3 1/2 inch square Basic Black card stock.
Add some Fast Fuse to the back of the black card stock. I also added some of the Foam Adhesive Strip along the top and the bottom. Adhere to the front of the card.
On the front of the card, I added some Thick Whisper White 1/2 inch circle punch circles. We are all about the dots! The Thanks is also from the Thick Whisper White. I used the Hello You Framelits. Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere.
What a fun card! I think my friend's customers will love getting their thank you card. My supply list follows. Need a demonstrator. I can do that for you. Just let me know if you need something!Product List
