Waffle Flower Be Her Shaker Card

My friend’s birthday is coming up and thankfully she doesn’t really do social media so I can share her card early! I recently acquired Waffle Flower’s Be Her stamp set set and I absolutely love the unicorn image! It’s nice and big so it’s great to be the focal point of the card. I thought it would make a cute shaker card with a rainbow background.

I stamped and coloured the unicorn with the following Copic markers: RV14, RV13, YR16, YR02, B02, B00, V04, V06, YG06, YG03, Y06, Y02, W0, 0.

I had 2 cover plates with horizontal stripes that I could have opted to use for this card. I have Mama Elephant’s Classic Stripe Cover Die and Papertrey Ink’s Stripes Horizontal Cover Plate and I opted to use the Mama Elephant one because it had 6 stripes. I thought that I could put one of each color of the rainbow in each stripe (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple). I cut my 2 layers of 3M foam tape to separate each compartment of the stripe for the shaker. This is where I regretted choosing the Mama Elephant die over the Papertrey ink die. The Papertrey ink die has a wider side so it would have been easier to do a shaker card with that one instead but I persisted and finished my shaker card using the Mama Elephant die cut.

I originally had the idea to do this card with seed beads but I didn’t get a chance to go out and buy them and I wanted to make the card at that particular instant. I ended up using sequins, chunky glitter, and whatever matched that particular color of the rainbow for the shaker card.

I glued the unicorn down and die cut a stitched banner from MFT’s Blueprints 20. I heat embossed the sentiment, “how lucky I am to have you as a friend”, in Tonic Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail Embossing Powder. This sentiment is from Mama Elephant’s Picnic With Friends stamp set. I adhered the banner onto the card with 3M foam tape.

I usually don’t do the insides of the card but for the inside I stamped, “Wishing a rainbow of happiness”, from MFT’s Rainbow of Happiness. I thought the sentiment suited the card nicely. I stamped the, “rainbow” text in a rainbow of colours using Lawn Fawn Lobster, Carrot, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass, Grape Soda and Hero Arts Neon Blue. I then stamped it again with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW Clear Sparkle.

This card was entered into Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge and Wednesday Challenge.
