Christmas in July Card Series w/ Sunny Studio - Wonky Windows Shaker Card

jeudi 21 juillet 2022

Hello there,

I'm super happy to be back on Sunny Studio blog with more Christmas in July inspiration. Today I'm featuring the Wonky windows die again, I love this die, it's so perfect to make shaker cards!

I first started by cutting a 6 x 3" bristol panel, and created a vibrant red background using tattered rose, festive berries and aged mahogany distress inks. And I added lots of texture to give this panel more interest: water splatters, white ink splatters and aged mahogany distress ink + water splatters.

And while the panel was drying, I stamped, die cut and colored my images. I like to mix and match stamps from different sets, and this is what I did on this card:

Little birdie: the birdhouse and two birds
Scenic route: the strings of lights
Outback critters: the branch
Christmas critters: the Christmas hat
Holiday express: a present
Penguin pals: the postcard and candy canes

Next I worked on the shaker. I started by cutting three windows out of my red panel using the Wonky windows die. I cut a 6 x 3" red card base, temporarily taped the red panel to it using washi tape, and put each window back to its original spot using liquid glue.

I removed the washi tape to lift the red panel, and then attached a piece of clear acetate at the back of it. Still at the back of the red panel, I added foam strips all around each window to create room for the shaker accessories.

I rubbed the inside edges of the foam strips with my powder tool to make those edges non sticky so the confetti don't stick to the foam. I used a microfiber cloth to remove any excess of powder from the acetate, and then I added a bunch of shiny confetti inside each window. Peeled all the backing papers off the foam strips, and finally attached the card base to the foam to complete and close the shaker.

I stuck the images on the panel using foam squares and liquid glue. And next I created my "Season's Tweetings" sentiment using elements from Little birdie. I stamped "Season's" in the upper part of the panel using black ink, and I white heat embossed "Tweetings" on vellum, along with the banner, and I attached this banner below the birdhouse using clear foam squares.

Finally I added highlights and details to the images and background using a white gel pen. And that's it, super bright and very cute with those birdies wearing Christmas hats. Thanks for stopping by, and as always feel welcome to watch the process video for more details. See you next week!
