Hello friends! Its Jennifer here on the blog today to share an acrylic card I created using one of the fun Mini Shaker Shapes from Clear Scraps. There are multiple designs to choose from that will fit whatever theme or holiday you need! Since it is Memorial Day here in the US, I created a patriotic themed project using the Flag Mini Shaker. And I will share the techniques I used!
I began by painting the front chipboard frame as well as the inside/outside edges of the middle frames with chalk paint in red. You don't necessarily have to use chalk paint but it does dry quickly. And I liked the color!
Using my Beacon Adhesive, I adhered patterned paper to the chipboard base of the shaker. I trimmed away excess paper with scissors followed by using an x-acto knife and sanding tool.
Once my paste was dry, I re-positioned my stencil and blended red and blue Distress Inks as shown. As you can see, I left the middle "blank" for white.
Here is a close up of the Flag Mini Shaker that I filled with traditional sequins and metallic stars. I adhered it to the front of my card again using my Beacon Adhesive.
I also added smaller embellishments such a die cut shapes as well as enamel dots for accent!
