A shaker card...

Hi! Christmas is over and 2017 is just around the corner. I made a card just for fun after a long time. I have been so busy lately that I generally just post my DT cards. I have a few non-DT projects that I will post soon.

I am a huge fan of both Mudra stamps and Die Cuts & More dies. Both are Indian brands that give world class designs and quality. I decided to combine both brands and make a card. Here is what I came up with.

I started with a piece of white card stock and my all time favorite Mudra stamp set - Botanical Blooms. This is their first multi-step stamp and I love it! It is very easy to line up the layers and the end result is always gorgeous. I used the Red Cosmos and Four Scoops mini ink pad sets by Altenw for the blooms and Memento dew drops for the leaves. I splattered some gold acrylic paint with a brush for some added colour.

Once the stamping was done. I cut my panel using the Double Stitched Circle dies by DCAM. I love that these dies cut like butter and they give a beautiful stitched detail on both sides. I raised the outer ring with foam tape and converted the central portion into a shaker. Here is a closer look at the panel.

I cut the Amazing word die by DCAM from black card stock and heat embossed it with some Black Sparkle EP by WOW!. To tone down the sparkle a bit, I reembossed it with black EP. The pink strip was colored with the mini ink cube and then I heat embossed part of the sentiment from the Lotus Delight stamp set by Peek-a-boo Designs with white EP.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
