The Swan Tunnel Base dies are meant to create a dimensional tunnel card, but I decided to give this die set a twist and create a shaker card! The set has all the pieces to create a beautiful scene! I started with the swan piece and die cut that from the center of a white card front - this will be my top panel. I die cut the tall grass and cattails pieces from black cardstock so they could go behind the swine for a silhouette effect. I lined them up so that the circles aligned and glued them together.
I blended some i-crafter Hybrid Inks onto a separate piece of cardstock to create a sunset background for the swan scene. I started with Lemon Drop at the top, Mango Madness in the middle, and Candy Coated at the bottom. I wanted to stamp a simple sentiment with the Haley Outline Stamp Set and I came thiiiiiiiis close to stamping the sentiment with black ink to tie in the silhouette grass in the background, but I decided to stamp the sentiment with the same ink colors I used in the background to create a gradient of color.
I finished this card into a traditional shaker card with some acetate, foam tape, and clear confetti pieces! To see the full process watch my YouTube video above!
