Easter Shaker Card

Hey, there! Easter is just under a month away, so I'm getting ready with a cute Easter egg shaker card using the Easter Bounty stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs!

I've been LOVING alcohol inks lately! In fact - I have about 30 inked background panels that I've made that are sitting in a pile waiting to be turned into cards! I was particularly drawn to this one because of the blues and greens and purples. It just screamed Easter to me! So I used it as the background for my shaker card! I die cut a large circle from a piece of white cardstock and cut a piece of heat resistant acetate large enough to fit behind the circle. I stamped and white heat embossed the jar with the eggs in it from the Easter Bounty stamp set. If you don't have heat resistant acetate you could stamp and emboss the image onto the alcohol ink background - but I really like the look of it on the acetate. That way the image is never covered by the shaker bits! I added the acetate to the back of my white die cut card front and added foam tape all around the circle to hold in my shaker bits. I added plenty of the little confetti pieces and sealed up the back of the shaker.

It was now that I looked at my card and decided that the white was ... too white! Haha! I used some light gray ink and stamped some of the single Easter egg images from the Easter Bounty stamp set onto the front of the card. This was awfully tricky because I had already added foam tape behind it and added it to my card - that's why my stamping is splotchy. If you are inspired to recreate this card I strongly encourage you to stamp the eggs BEFORE you create your shaker. Haha! Believe me ... save yourself the heartache!

To finish off my card I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment from the Easter Bounty stamp set onto black cardstock and glued it to my card front! I just love those little confetti balls floating around behind the Easter egg image! Thanks for joining me!
