card details

  • I used 6 cut Reversed Scallop frames. Keep the inner piece from the die cut.
  • Keep two frames aside.
  • Glue the other four together and allow to dry.
  • Glue your green card stock to your base.
  • Adhere the patterened paper on top.
  • While those are drying, ink blend your background on the inner piece you set aside. I used Distress Oxides.
  • Add white gel pen to the background or splatters.
Quokka Shaker Card
Happy Quokkas
  • I also glued a few of the snowflakes from the Glistening Tinsel Christmas Mix. So when the sequins fall to the bottom of the shaker there are still a few up above.
  • Now center your Reversed Scalloped frame and glue it down. Set something heavy on top and allow to dry.
  • Stamp your Quokkas, the Christmas tree and any of the other stamps you want to use in your scene. I use alcohol markers.
  • I added some glitter glue to some areas, like the star on the tree, the Quokka’s cap, the bows.
  • I added nylon string to the back of the Christmas tree with washi tape so it jiggles a tiny bit when shook. Make sure to measure where you want your tree to sit INSIDE the shaker. Then you will add a tiny bit of double sided tape to the middle of the frame top and bottom. Place your thread down. Make sure you have a little slack and tape down the bottom. I added a bit of the same tape on top but did not remove the backer. You will remove the backer when we add the top frames/acetate.
  • Emboss the sentiments Happy Holidays from the Happy Day stamp set. I used white embossing powder and embossable acetate.
  • Sandwich the acetate between the two extra frames with liquid glue or your choice of adhesive.
  • Center and lay your card base down. The patterned paper, card stock, ink blended background and frames should all be glued down and Christmas tree attached.
  • Place the amount of sequins or glitter in the center. Carefully place the two top frames on the card base.
  • SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!
