Spotlight Designer: Juliana Michaels
Hello friends! It’s Juliana with you and I’m super excited to be joining Honey Bee Stamps this month! Today, I’m sharing a coffee cup shaker card I created along with a quick tutorial on how to create your very own.
I love coffee and shaker cards so of course, I knew had to make a coffee cup shaker card with the awesome Honey Bee Stamps Coffee Cup Card Honey Cut. Shaker cards are so fun to create and give! There is just something about shaking the card and seeing all the shimmer and shine that makes my heart happy.
I began by stamping the image from the Forest Friends stamp set and colored it with Chameleon Pens. Once the coloring was completed, I set this piece to the side to focus on creating the shaker.
To create the shaker, I took the frame piece from the Coffee Cup Card die and cut it out 5 times from white cardstock. I glued all of these layers together to create the shaker box. I then took the Forest Friends stamp image and placed the box on top of it and used it as a template. I traced around it with a pencil and then trimmed it to size. This will be the bottom of the shaker. For some additional color, I inked the edges of this piece with some Distress Oxide in Salty Ocean.
Next, I took a piece of acetate slightly larger than the shaker box. I glued it to the top of the shaker box and I trimmed off the excess. Now it’s time to fill the shaker with all the sparkly things! I turned the shaker so that the acetate side was facing down and filled it with the Honey Bee Bronze Cup Coffee Beans Shaker Set along with some sequins from my stash. I then glued the stamped image piece on top of this to complete the shaker.
To finish off the card, I used the other dies from the set to die cut a frame from light teal cardstock and to die cut a top for the coffee cup from patterned paper. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set onto a tag die and attached it to the cup with a bit of jute. I then used the card die to cut out the card base from white cardstock and adhered everything to the base.
Thank you for stopping by today and a huge thank you to Honey Bee Stamps for having me as a guest! Happy Holidays!
