Ah, what do you make for a 13 year old boy that doesn’t play sports? He does play the cello but I couldn’t come up with a card for that. So…I decided an eclectic card would do. Here is what I came up with. Using Foil Frenzy in Lemon Lime Twist I paired it with Gold Numbers, and Lemon Lime Card Stock. I think it turned out pretty nifty. At first when I created it I wanted to the leave the front plain, but after some thought I added from stars from two different die sets that were coordinating. Gold Foil kind of sets it off.
Since I wanted to use die cut gold foil numbers I had to contrive a different way of creating my shaker card. Using two window sheets I made a ‘shaker pocket’ adhered to the back of the patterned foil card front. The pocket was created by first adhering a piece of window sheet to the back of the die cut round opening. I used Fast Fuse. Next using Foam Adhesive Strips I outlined the window placing the Foam directly on the window sheet. Next I cut another piece of window sheet about the same size and then carefully place some sequins on the open area. Placing the second sheet of window sheet on top of the foam adhesive strips sealed it carefully. The front was then adhered to the Card Front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using the die cut piece from the front of the card I adhered it to a piece of Whisper White Card Stock The Happy Birthday Thinlit was die cut in Lemon Lime Card Stock and adhered on top of the die cut. The materials I used in this card can be found listed below.
