So today is Die Cut Obsession Day over at the Impression Obsession blog here. On the blog you will find inspiration from other designers. As for me, I chose to use one of our new animal dies, the Frog. My grandchildren love frogs and love to catch them while they are visiting me so I made this card for them. I decided on a shaker card because I know they love shakers but also because the tree frogs have been seeking a high dry shelter on one of my windows lol!
I die cut the frog from some watercolor paper and used basic green and mixes of greens to paint the frog. For the background, I stamped Shaded Leaves CAC background with Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to color it. I wanted it to look like water. Overall the card is 4.5 x 4.5".
I used a slightly less than 4 in square die to cut the shaker square and then covered the opening with acetate. I doubled up the foam tape and cut it into thin strips and added that around the inside of the opening. I added some blue, gold, green and clear sequins.
The very back of the shaker is a blue panel which I covered with vellum as it was not quite working with the cover panel. I adhered the shaker panel to the back panel with Scor-tape. The sentiment is from Life Stuff Sentiments and I stamped that with Versafine Onyx black. I added googly eyes to make my grandchildren laugh. I will swap out the sentiment before I send it lol!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head over to the Impression Obsession Blog
