We’re back for a final guest design post from Vicki Robertson of He”artful” Validation . Not only did she create a lovely baby boy card, but she’s also sharing a great tutorial for creating shaker cards! Let’s get to it…
“Hi crafty friends! This is my last Friday as Guest Designer for CropStop. Today I’m sharing a card that I made for someone that will soon be having a baby boy! I’ve been on a crafty spending spree ordering new stash from all the recent releases that are showing up everywhere. One item that has already arrived is Authentique’s “Cuddle Boy” designer collection…a bundle of super cute baby boy papers. Here’s a Baby “Boy” shaker card I created to share with you…
The left photo (below) shows where the shaker pouch will be placed. After placing the “Boy” sticker in the center of the card base, I sprinkled the sequins and adhered the shaker pouch over everything. This is topped with the second layer that I cut previously.
This next step is a little tricky because there are two die cuts used. I wanted to add a finished touch around the shaker pouch and decided on a star pattern die to go with the sequins. Using the two die cuts together, I created this star frame surrounding the shaker pouch. Although it’s a baby boy card, I couldn’t resist adding a couple of yellow roses along with the other embellishments.
Thank you, CropStop, for having me as one of your August Guest Designers!”
