Stitched Shaker Card


Hello! We are halfway through the month of April. Can you believe that? Anyway, for today's post, I am using an image from one of our sponsors in this month's Incy Wincy Designs Challenge on Easter +/or Animals

I printed the image on white cardstock and colored this with Prismacolor colored pencils. I fussy cut the image leaving a white border around it.

For the panel, I die cut a window on a leaf patterned paper using the Avery Elle Pierced Mat die. I gently stitched brown embroidery floss through the piercings to frame the window. I adhered the acetate to the back side of the window frame. 

I heat embossed the sentiment to the acetate. Before I did that, I temporarily positioned the fussy cut image on the window so I would know where to stamp the sentiment. The stamp is from Honey Bee Designs Paper Hug stamp set. After the embossing is done, I adhered the image to the front of the acetate with a liquid glue.

For the inside of the shaker card, I blended Tim Holtz Lucky Clover Distress Oxide to a white cardstock. I am using the SugarPea Designs Leaf Canopy stencil. I sprayed one side of this with temporary adhesive and laid it over the ink blended panel. I blended more of the Lucky Clover ink over the stencil, adding some TH Peeled Paint Distress Oxide on some areas. I heat set this to dry. You can see some of this leaf details on the close-up photo above.

I lined the backside of the window panel with foam adhesive creating a well. I added gold floral sequins to the ink blended panel and adhered the window panel to it. 

The window frame is cut at 4" x 5 1/4". I matted this with a green cardstock. 

I added gold flower die cuts to the edges. The die I used is from Paper Smooches.

You still have time to join the current Incy Wincy Challenge. We can't wait to see what you created.

Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
