Birthday Shaker Card ...

Good morning and Happy Wednesday! Ruza here to share another project featuring the awesome Great Impressions Stamps.


When I saw the Mason Jar (F616) from this months release the first thing I thought of was a Shaker Card.  To get the window for the Mason Jar, I stamped the image and used my knife to cut the image out. I went very slow and just a hair away from the exterior edge of the stamp.  I adhered clear cardstock behind the Mason Jar opening with 1/4" Scor-Tape, and then added 3D foam tape around the jar opening.

I then stamped the decorative part of the Mason Jar several times, colored each section with my Copic Markers, fussy cut them out and layered them back together. Next up was to stamp the Mason Jar on my cardbase. Once that was done I put some tiny beads in the center of the Mason Jar and adhered the cover with more 3D Foam Tape around the entire cover.

The colors on the cover were created with a variety of Distress Inks and a dauber. Now I did this a little backward ... I added the Distress Inks after I adhered the cover to my cardbase vs. before.

The Happy Birthday (C340) Sentiment was stamped on my Nestabilities Ribbon Banner Die, where I cut small slits on both ends to weave in some Toffee Twine which was used to tie it on my card. The final step was to add Enamel Dots, and Liquid Pearls were applied, around the cover.

Here's a closer look of the Mason Jar (F616) laying down ...


That is all for me today. I will be back next week with another project featuring some amazing stamps from Great Impressions! I hope you will check out our current Great Impressions Challenge, and if you use some Great Impressions stamps make sure you link them up in our Customer Gallery!

Until next week ... Enjoy!
