5/31/22 Top Pick at Crafting Happiness Challenges!
Hey, everybody! Another weekend has bit the dust and I hope it was a good one! Every day is good with us regardless of what day of the week it is! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I have an adorably ‘sweet’ Summer card featuring our Mini Shaker Popsicle filled with Sprinkles Lime Confetti on a Geo Burst Stencil background to share with you today. This couldn’t have been any more fun to create!
I started by coloring the top chipboard form of the Mini Shaker Popsicle along with the edges of the remaining forms and back with alcohol markers. I adhered a piece of Stamp Anniething popsicle patterned paper to the chipboard back so it’s visible through the aperture. Working up from the bottom, I adhered the next two chipboard forms and added Sprinkles Lime Confetti. I removed the protective film from the bottom side of the acrylic divider and adhered it, then removed the protective film from the top side of the acrylic divider and adhered the top chipboard form.
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from 80# Solar White cardstock and Basis Gold cardstock. I applied Ranger twisted citron, fossilized amber, wild honey and abandoned coral distress inks to the white cardstock panel through the Geo Burst Stencil with blending brushes. I spritzed Tattered Angels Iridescent Silver Glimmer Mist over the panel, trimmed it, and adhered a piece of Stamp Anniething dotted patterned paper and a strip of MAMBI washi tape across the bottom. I added the Carta Bella sticker sentiment and then adhered the panel to the card base. I adhered the shaker and several Eyelet Outlet red gemstones to complete the card front.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Basis Gold cardstock and MAMBI skinny washi tape. I adhered another Carta Bella sentiment sticker and layered the panel on the yellow cardstock.
And one more look… such an awesome Summer card! The background stencil and shaker are so fun!
