Hi! Today I have an easy technique showing you how to make a message in a bottle shaker card from the Explore and Discover Stamp Set from LDRS Creative! You can take this technique and adapt it to any stamp that has an open background like a gumball machine or a candy jar!
Now let's make that fun message in a bottle shaker! I stamped the bottle image twice from the Explore and Discover Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid Ink and cut them both with the coordinating Explore and Discover Die Set. I colored just the top of the bottle and the cork on one die cut and then used my scissors to trim out the inside of the stamped image - leaving a slight border. I colored in the center of the bottle on the second die cut - this will be the background of the shaker. I build a standard shaker well with a piece of acetate ( for a quick and easy acetate piece that will match the shaker perfectly I used the same bottle die to cut acetate and adhered it to the back of the cut out bottle frame! ), and some foam tape. I filled the shaker with some iridescent sequins and sealed it with the colored background bottle piece. Doesn't it look so fun!
I wanted a cute little sentiment that wouldn't take away from the pretty background and shaker element, so I stamped out a banner from the Explore and Discover Stamp Set with Prickly Pear Perfection. I love these little banners! And there are a few of them in the Explore and Discover Stamp Set. They're just the perfect size! I added it across the center of the bottle to finish the card! I'll see you soon with more summery inspiration from LDRS Creative!
