Who doesn’t love a good shaker card with a peek-a-boo window? I know I do! When I said this was super simple, I meant more that it doesn’t involve coloring (except for the Jolly Word Chipboard). 🙂 The card does take a bit of planning and if you like your cards perfectly square, which I am incapable of doing, then you need to measure.
To get this look I used a circle die that is roughly the same diameter as the Scribble Circle Frame to die cut my card blank, patterned paper and (not seen) fun foam roughly in the center. (This is where you might want to measure.) I then cut two squares of overhead transparencies smaller than the patterned paper. Using my tape gun, I taped one transparency to the top of the card blank and firmly pressed the transparency to the tape using a bone folder. This extra step, makes sure that there is good adhesion between the tape and the plastic. Following the same idea, I taped the fun foam to the transparency. At this point, I grabbed all the gold, silver and red sequins I could to fit in the middle circle. Since I knew Fairy Gift was going to peek out I didn’t want to over fill it though. Another layer of tape and transparency followed by the patterned paper, with the circles all line up, finished the window up nicely.
I left the Scribble Circle Frame natural and only used my Clear Star Gel Pen on the circles and stars to give a bit of bling. I did, however use R83, R85 and R89 on the Jolly Word Chipboard. R89 for the offset makes for a great dark contrast for the chipboard, while the R83 and R85 add a nice pink tone. Of course I then totally went to town with the Clear Star Gel Pen (have I mentioned how much I LOVE these pens?!).
The inside is the sweet Fairy Gift Digi Stamp, colored in the same red tones of the patterned paper. You could easily color up the image, but I wanted to leave her bare, just to show you all how you too can make an easy peasy card like this without coloring skills. 😀 That and when you and your entire family have been sick for a week you don’t find too much time to color. *blush*
I hope everyone has a wonderful December!
I’ll be back next week for one of my last projects on here (so sad!).
