After taking a week off to spend with family visiting I am back on the blogging scene!
I have a little window shaker card to share with you today. I managed to squeeze this one in during Hayden's morning nap and I also took a video of the process.
First, I colored some cardstock with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then stamped the Elephant over the top. This is just a super quick way to simply color in a stamp and I find it gives it a very even color, too. I pretty much left the elephant blue, but I used some silver Wink of Stella to add a little detail to his hat and toes. I then fussy cut the elephant and set him aside as I worked on the rest of the card.
The next step was to cut out a square window in my patterned paper using a square die and my Sizzix. Then, I adhered a piece of vellum to the backside. I colored another scrap of paper with Tumbled Glass and Broken China, then spritzed it with some Pearl Glimmer Mist and I used that background piece behind the window.
To fill my shaker window, I used some star die cuts and a little bit of silver glitter.
I glued that all down to my cardstock base using Tombow's Stamp Runner Adhesive. The elephant I adhered to the front using some small square foam adhesive. Then, I die cut the word "birthday" and stamped some stars and the rest of the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today! If you are interested in any of the products I used I've included some links down below.
