Mermaid Happy Birthday Shaker Card0
I love using bright colours especially for birthday cards. I have this sweet mermaid shaker card on the blog today.
You will need:
- Daffodil Yellow Smooth Card 240gsm
- Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm
- Turquoise Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 250gsm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml
- Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm
You will also need:
- Mermaid stamps and greeting (Uniquely Creative)
- Copic Markers
- Circle Die
- Acetate sheet
- White Embossing Powder (WOW)
- Nuvo Drops
- Sequins (CraftMania)
To start with I made the card base using a sheet of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm which I scored at 5 7/8" and trimmed at 4 1/8".
I then trimmed down the card front using a sheet of Daffodil Yellow Smooth Card 240gsm and run a circle die through the die cutting machine. I turned this over and adhered a acetate piece over the back using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. Once this is dry I then added some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm around the edges and filled the inner circle with sequins. I then adhered a piece of Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm and adhered this to my card front.
I then stamped and heat embossed the greeting onto a piece of Turquoise Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm. I trimmed this down and adhered onto the card.
To finish the card off I added a few drops of Nuvo drops.
Your mermaid shaker card is now complete.
