Champagne Glass Shaped Shaker Note Card

I started creating this card a little after New Year but didn't get to finish it until this week. But it is still the first month of the year. I intended to give this as a thank you note for a present I received during Christmas.

I started off by cutting the wine glass using my Cricut Imagine and Cricut Simply Charmed cartridge. I cut the image at 4 1/2" on a white pearl cardstock. I cut the same image twice using a white cardstock. The cut came with tick lines which is used to line up and adhere the layers. But I am not using the layers. Instead, I cut through those tick lines using a blade to create a window for the shaker. There is this one tick mark at the upper left hand of the wine glass that I couldn't get rid off. You can remove this if if you have the Cricut Design Space which I don't since it is not compatible with my Cricut.

I cut around the tick marks on one of the white wine glasses. I will use this to close the shaker window. I also used this as a guide to cut vellum for the window. I stamped a sentiment onto this vellum using a Fiskars stamp set. I treated the surface first with an anti-static tool, before stamping the sentiment using Versamark ink, then pouring some Wow! Embossing Glitter Platinum Sparkle powder. I heat set this but I allowed the heat gun to run heat first before pointing the gun towards the vellum to prevent warping.

I added embossing paste to the white cardstock that will seal the shaker window. But since I used vellum, it can hardly be seen through the vellum. So, you could probably skip this part. Somehow, it had a used in creating grooves for the sequins to get stuck. Using a clear acetate for the shaker can be an option too if you want to stick to the embossing paste design.

I used a thin double stick adhesive to adhere the vellum to the back of the window wine glass. I also used this in encircling the cardstock that will seal the window. I poured a small amount of sequins to this, then adhered it to the back of the pearl wine glass.

To make the wine glass sturdy, I adhered the other white cardstock wine glass cut out to the back of the wine glass. I applied a twine to the neck of wine glass. I squirted a small amount of strong adhesive behind the knot to keep it knotted.

I added a tag using left over dark gray cardstock. After I stamped 2016 on it and heat embossed it using the same powder, I cut a tag notch on the top part using a tag punch. Hand cutting this step is totally fine. I didn't want to punch a hole onto this being a small tag. I used a needle to create pinpoint holes where I threaded a silver thread to tie on the twine.
