Strawberry Shaker Card (feat. Lawn Fawn)

Hi friends. I had lots of fun making this cute strawberry shaker card using the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts and Lawn Fawn Strawberry Patch Die Cuts. I love that this large strawberry die comes with face elements you can add to make it cuter.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to 4-1/2 x 4-1/2″ for the top panel. I die cut the strawberry window from the panel using the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts.

Next, I die cut a ton of the seeds with the same die set from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock and adhered them around the window. I diecut the leaves from Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts and Lawn Fawn Strawberry Patch Die Cuts from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Papers (retired) and added some dimension by coloring them with Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Oxides Ink. I cut the flowers from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock and colored the back piece with Lawn Fawn Guava Ink.

Next, I built the shaker element by adding a piece of Acetate behind the window and two layers of 3M Foam Tape behind. I added shaker bits from Queen and Company Fruit Toppings, Pastel Diamonds Toppings, and pink pearls from Bring On Spring Topping Refill. I sealed the shaker by adding a piece of Lawn Fawn 100lb Guava 8 1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock.

For the sentiment, I stamped part of it from the Lawn Fawn HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY Stampset and the rest from Lawn Fawn Simply Sentiments onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink and cut them down into strips. To finish off the sentiment, I die cut the word “BERRY” from Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 X 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft Stock with Honey Bee Tailgate Alphabet Dies. I also added the eyes and a mouth from the Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts which I cut from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock.

Lastly, I finished it off by adding some highlights with a White Gel Pen.

I left the inside of the card blank.

Window Card Using a Laminator featuring Simon Says Stamp

Happy Monday friends! Hope you are safe and had a good weekend. Today I am bringing you this card featuring a faux shaker. I saw this technique used by Jennifer McGuire and I decided to try it. I made it simpler by using pattern paper and some stamped snowflakes.

I started by cutting a piece of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue 100lb Card Stock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″, to create a card base. I cut out a strip from the front of the card base, measuring 1-1/4” in height and then two strips of the stories from the Carta Bella Santa’s Workshop 6 x 6 Designer Papers (discontinued), each measuring 1-1/2 x 5-1/2”.

I took some sequins and added them inside a laminating pouch and ran that through a lamination machine. I trimmed it down to approximately 3 x 5-1/2” and adhered it between the card base pieces and the pattern pieces using 1/4” double sided tape.

I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp CHRISTMAS CHEER Stamps onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink. Then cut it down to 3/8 x 2-3/4” and adhered it to the card. I also stamped some snowflakes with Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink, fussycut them out and adhered them to the card.

On the inside of the card, I adhered two strips of another pattern paper from the Carta Bella Santa’s Workshop 6 x 6 Designer Papers (discontinued), each measuring 1-1/2 x 5-1/2”, to the back of the front panel. Then I stamped another greeting from the Simon Says Stamp CHRISTMAS CHEER Stamps with Tim Holtz Festive Berries Distress Oxide Ink.
