They say it’s your birthday

Happy bank holiday weekend!

One of the new items coming in the brand new stampin up catalogue are strips of dimensionals that make making a shaker card so simple!

For this one I used Pacific point card to make the card base, then cut a piece of whisper white for the front and inked it with my dauber and Pacific point ink to make the stripes.  We used this technique at one of Lilian Withers classes a few weeks back and it’s such a quick way transform boring white card!  I stamped celebrate in real red multiple times on the stripes.

Next I punched a circle out of the decorated piece of Whisper white using 2″ circle punch. I punched a second circle out of acetate using the 2 1/2″ circle punch and also using the 2 1/2″ I did another one in whisper white to form the back.

Shaker cards are so much easier to make now with the dimensional strips! I adhered the Tombow to the back of the striped whisper white before sticking the dimensional strip around the edge.

I punched lots of little stars out using the star border punch put them inside the adhesive stripe before removing the backing and sticking down the final circle of whisper white which I had stamped the sentiment on. I finished off with bakers twin and then used pieces of the dimensional strips to adhere to the card front. You can’t use ordinary dimensionals as the new strips are a little thicker.

and there we have it!



Enjoy the rest of he bank holiday weekend!
