Penguin Shaker

Hi, everyone, Kelli here!  Today I have something kind of fun to share with you, a shaker card!  When I was thinking about what I was going to make, I knew I wanted to use the cute little penguin from the SP & Company - Christmas Medley stamp set.  I just didn't know what I was going to do yet.  Then it hit me, his little belly was PERFECT for a shaker card!


I stamped him in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink and then colored him with Copics:  C9, C7 and C5 for his body.  For his hat I used R29, R27, R24 and R22 andYR15 and Y35 for his beak and feet.  I colored the white areas on his hat with B0000 and then put some glitter on top.  I cut him out with a circle Nestabilities die and then sponged around the edges using my Ink Blending Tool with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China.

For the snowflakes in the background of his belly and the snowflakes on the sentiment I used the SP & Company - Christmas Emma stamp set with the Broken China ink.  To make a shaker card you just need a stamp that will work with what you want to do, a piece of acetate or in my case, thin plastic packaging, and some dimensional adhesive.  I cut the plastic piece bigger than his belly and then glued it to the underside of the image.  Then I created a sealed frame around it with dimensional adhesive so when I attached it to the circle piece in the back (with the snowflake stamping) it would hold in the glitter.  One word of advice, pull off the backing to your dimensional adhesive before adding the glitter, this will help avoid spilling the glitter all over, hehe.

For the sentiment I used the Christmas Emma set again and just added some bling!

 Thanks for stopping by!  :)
