Micro beads floral shaker card

Hello again,

It is my second post today as I wanted to share another card I made for the MFT Sketch Challenge #320:

When I first saw the sketch I had a shaker card in mind. Here is what I came up with:


I hade a beautiful floral background I made earlier using an MFT background stamp, white embossing powder and distress inks. I stamped and black heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom (MFT Essential sentiments).


I took a small rectangle die and cut it five times from scrap paper. I placed them on my floral background as I wanted (I used a T-ruler for exact placement) and temporarily adhered them down. I put the rectangle die on the little rectangles and ran it though the Big Shot machine one by one. In this way I got the five windows perfectly placed. I glued a piece of plastic on the back and made my tunnels for the micro beads using 3D foam tape. Before removing the release paper I treated the edges and the acetate with an antistatic tool. Then I removed the release paper and filled each window with one colour of micro beads (Queen and Co). It took a while and I had to remove some naughty ones which got stuck on the adhesive tape. Maybe next time I will try to fill first and then remove the backing paper.


When it was full, I placed carefully a white rectangle piece on it to close it. My card base is black this time for more contrast.


I will submit this card to the above mentioned MFT Sketch challenge and SSS Wednesday Challenge Fantastic florals too.

Hope to see you soon again.
