Today I've created a card with the new Best Banners stamp & die sets.
This card was totally inspired by an amazing card that JJ Bolton created last year. I've been wanting to
To start, I die cut the "best" banner 4 times. Then I used a glue pen to adhere 3 of the die cuts together.
I used the fourth "best" banner die as a guide to cut a piece of acetate to match. Then I set both pieces aside for later.
Next, I stamped a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 white panel with the words to complete the sentiment.
I used the glue pen again to adhere the triple-layered "best" to the stamped panel. Then I set it aside to dry completely (very important when using glitter in the shaker).
For the glitter I wanted a very subtle ombre effect so I colored my clear glitter with alcohol ink. In a plastic bag, I added a few spoonfuls of glitter. First I added one drop of ink, squished the bag around to blend and then removed 1/3 of the glitter. To the remaining glitter I added 2 more drops of ink, blended again and removed another 1/3. To the final 1/3 of glitter, I added 3 more drops of ink.
Over the glitter, I adhered the acetate piece and then finished it with the last "best" banner die cut.
I can't wait to make bunches more of these sweet little shakers, especially because I have lots of colored glitter left!
Thank you for inviting me to play Concord & 9th!
