Card #21 –  A See Through Shaker Card

Card 21 Supply LayoutI started by assembling all my supplies.

I’m a bit in love with shaker cards at the moment.  This one is a little different because the acetate sheets are placed right on top of each other, creating a see through card.




I used yellow textured cardstock (4 1/4″ X 11″) for my base, white cardstock (4″ X 5 1/4″) for the cover panel, scrap white cardstock for the stamped images and clear acetate (4″ X 4″) for the see through part.

Matching die cutsI started by die cutting the front of the card and the cover panel.  I used my square frame die cuts and cut towards the top of the card to leave room at the bottom for the sentiment.

Embossed and colored stamped imagesI stamped and embossed two images of a light bulb and cut them out.  Each image is glued together so that the back of the panel is the same as the front.

Clear acetate glued to the inside of the cardCard 21 7I adhered  one of the clear acetate pieces to the back of the front panel over the square made by the die cut.  I placed the light bulb and sprinkled glitter and sequins.  I then glued down the remaining acetate square on top of the bulb and sequins.  I glued down the white cover panel to cover the glue used to secure the acetate.

I stamped the sentiment on the lower portion of the front of the card and glued three rhinestones just below the left lower corner.

Here is the finished card.
