Hello Honey Bee friends! Since it’s the last week of the year, I just had to make a fun, sparkly shaker card to wish you all a wonderful 2022! I used a shaker pocket for this super easy shaker card with a fun stenciled background. The Layering Fireworks stencil set is perfect for this and many other occasions!
First I created the background layer that will be inside the shaker. I spread some Bubblegum Glitz Glitter Gel through one of the Layering Fireworks stencils and set it aside to dry. Be sure to wash up the stencil and your tools immediately!
I wanted the numbers to have the same pink glitter gel, but didn’t want a huge mess. I first die cut the numbers from the Bee Bold Numeric Honey Cuts from 80# Neenah–be sure to save the negative portion. I added some temporary adhesive to the back of the numbers and stuck them back into the negative piece on an acetate package I retrieved from my trash. Then I taped the piece to the acetate with some purple tape. Next I spread the glitter gel over it all and removed the negative piece when I had the gel smoothed out. TAH-DAH! Nice, neat and clean numbers!! I used my craft pick to pick them up and move them to my silicone mat for drying. Check out these photos for a visual!
Next I die cut “happy” from the Bitty Buzzwords and “you” from the You Buzzword Honey Cuts from white card stock for the shadows and black card stock for the top layers. I adhered the layers together with Bee Creative glue.
I stamped the sparkler from the New Year Cheers set with Intense Black ink three times. I colored the wand with a few gray Copics and the sparklers with silver and gold metallic pens. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. The tiny “to” sentiment is from the You Buzzword stamp set and I just taped off the “you” that’s a part of the stamp, inked it up, removed the tape and stamped with Intense Black ink.
Now it’s time to assemble the shaker! It is so very easy with the Shaker Creator Shaker Pockets! Before I added my stenciled panel to the shaker, I spattered on some gold metallic paint and dried it with my heat tool. I did find that my background panel fit the shaker pocket better if I trimmed a sliver off of the top and one side. I placed it face down in the pocket and removed all but the top adhesive liners and folded the tabs over to adhere. Then I added some of Honey Bee’s Charming Sequin Mix and Gold Lights Confetti Mix to the pocket and then adhered the top tab. I added some very strong double-sided adhesive to the back of the shaker and added it to an A2 card base.
I hope I’ve inspired you with my fun and so sparkly card today! I’m wishing you all the best in 2022 with lots of happy and crafty fun! Thank you so much for stopping by!
