Shadow box shaker card

 Hello everyone, hope you all are doing good... 

Today I'm sharing a wonderful project with you all. 

This is a beautiful birthday card, for a special someone.. and that is none other than my mother.


The card is 6x7'' in size with a shaker element as one of the focal point. I have used pastel pink textured cardstock for the card base and also to make the shadow box for the shaker.


I have also used gold mirror cardstock to give that elegant look and also add beauty to the card. I used a matt layer of pastel pink card stock, which was scored to give that extra stripe pattern along with the gold mirror card stock ; under the shaker element.

For the flowers I used the smallest of the Wild rose collection, stamped with Costal Coral archival inks and colored with Prickly pear and Costal Coral archival inks. Die-cut the petals using the corresponding dies, soaked them in water, removed the excess water and shaped them using groove tools. I used light yellow pollens and colored the tips with Costal Coral , arranged and glued the petals to form open Rose flowers.
For the leaves, I used the leaves from Classic Rose collection, stamped them using Olive green archival ink. Colored the leaves using Prickly pear and Leaf green archival inks and cut them using the coordinating dies. I used the similar shaping method as of the flowers.
I used several die-cut elements with gold mirror card stock using few of the Heartfelt Creations dies including the sentiment piece. Arranged and glued the flowers and leaves as shown in the picture.
For the shaker, I have used many elements including sequins, flower pearls, shaker slices as well as some fine glitter.
I enjoyed making this card and loved the outcome... Will come up with more and more beautiful creations... Hoping that you all stay safe and healthy.. 😍
