Introducing Let’s Play on our blog! If you’ve browsed through our Bloom This Way Trends Mini Catalog, you probably saw our Let’s Play step-outs. This is our way of encouraging you to play along. We’ll give you step by step instructions for fun techniques in our catalogs and here on the blog. Today we’ll create a different take on a shaker card for Valentine’s Day!
It’s a shaker card without Journey Vellum to hold in embellishments!
You’ll need the following supplies: Decorative Hearts Die Set DI-0218| Snapshot Frames Die Set DI-0045| I Heart Embossing Folder EF-0014| Fashion Silver AC-0293| Deco Strips-red AC-0284| Love Buds AC-0177| Journey Twine Candy Apple AC-0266| Mirror Silver Cardstock CS-0137| Whip Cream Cardstock CS-0040| Cranberry Bliss Cardstock CS-0090| Journey Sequins Special Celebration| Confetti Sparkle Elements Candy Apple| Heart Punch TO-0115| White Liner Sheets AD-0113| Journey Foam Squares MD AD-0085|
Step 1: Grab the Decorative Hearts Die Set. Die cut an I Hearts embossed Whip Cream Cardstock panel with the heart outline. Die cut a solid Whip Cream Cardstock panel with the same heart outline. Place a sheet of White Liner of a Cranberry Bliss Cardstock panel and die cut out the detailed Decorative Hearts Die.
Step 2: Grab the non-embossed die cut Whip Cream panel and place Journey Foam Squares around the outline of the heart and in the corners as shown in the photo below. Remove the White Liner from the Cranberry Bliss Decorative Heart and adhere it to the backside of the embossed cardstock panel.
Step 3: Fill your heart with shaker elements as shown in the photo below. Use your favorites! We used Journey Sequins Special Celebration, Journey Sequins Pink World and punched hearts. Place the other panel on top. Remember, your Cranberry Bliss Decorative Heart is still sticky, so your shaker embellishments will stick to the heart and stay in place. No Journey Vellum required.
Step 4: Assemble the rest of your project!
Step 5: Share away! Take a photo of your work of art and share it on social media. Tag us on Facebook @FunStampersJourney and Instagram @fsjourney #fsjletsplay
