It's Lynnea! Creating a fall-themed shaker card with stamp layering and die-cutting has never been easier - or cuter! Join me as I take you through my process for creating this easy shaker card!
Let's start with an A2 piece of kraft cardstock. I grabbed the Grateful for You 4x6 Stamps and used various shades of yellow, orange, red, and green LDRS Creative Hybrid Inks to stamp the solid maple and oak leaves all over the panel. I added the acorns with two shades of brown LDRS Creative Hybrid Inks wherever there was empty space in my background. You could leave the background as is, but I decided to add the detail layer for the leaves and acorns. I used Raven Hybrid Ink for the outlines. I wasn't careful about lining the outline up perfectly. Instead, I decided to offset it just a bit. Some gold watercolor spatters finish the background.
I die cut white cardstock using the largest oval from the Delicate Stitches Delicate Oval Dies to use as my shaker frame. I added a piece of acetate to the back and then added double thick foam tape around the back of the frame. I filled it up with a gold, white, and brown shaker mix and added it to the front of my stamped panel. I die cut a sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiment Dies and thought that would finish off my card ... but it was missing something.
In the end - I decided my card needed a little dose of something cute! I used LDRS Creative Hybrid Inks to stamp the squirrel from the Grateful for You 4x6 Stamps, trimmed it out with scissors, and added the image to the front of my card. That's it! Easy peasy and super cute!
