Christmas Shaker Card

I had more fun designing cards using the Jar of Cheer stamp set and still didn't use all the stamps in the set. That means there are plenty of other ideas to pursue!

Anyway, I've been wanting to try a shaker card for some time. Now that we have the flexible Foam Adhesive Strips, it is so much easier to make a card in any shape. So for this card, naturally, I made them fit the shape of a jar.

For this card, I cut the jar (Everyday Jars Framelits) from  a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of designer series paper from the Warmth & Cheer paper stack, attaching a piece of a Window Sheet behind the opening. Then I stamped the jar and ornaments on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Basic Black Archival ink. The white needs to be large enough to extend past the opening in the dsp. I then colored with Stampin' Write Markers, using Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler for the leaves and berries and Wild Wasabi for one ornament. The other two ornaments were colored using clear and gold Wink of Stella.

Once the image was ready, I took one foam adhesive strip and molded it around the jar, leaving a little room so it wouldn't show beneath the dsp. One strip does the job. [The jar lid will cover some of the strip.]

Once your strip is ready, add the glitter (I used gold), remove the paper strip, line up with the jar shape you previously cut out and press. The rest is pretty obvious. Oh, I did paint the jar band with more gold Wink of Stella.
