Scrappy Shak cards

Hey friends!

Today I’m sharing 3 cards I made for the ScrappyShak! These fun cards all have some kind of sparkle to them.

This is our first card. This adorable elephant is a stamp from Lawn Fawn. I used it to make a congratulations on your baby card. The background is ink smooshed with Distress ink. Then we added a little sparkle paint splatters. The elephants are colored with Copic markers on Neenah Classic Crest paper. I added a few sequins to finish off the card.  Here’s a close up:

The next card builds on the ink smooshed background.

This card background was made in the same way as the first. It features the Lost Shadow Distress ink behind the shaker box. This card uses the newest Tim Holtz ideaology! I love these transparency sheets. They do all the heavy lifting but leave you room to add your own touch. I made this one into a shaker box using a 49 and Market frame, some sequins, and a few stamps. I think this one is my favorite! Here is a close up:

And our last card builds on the shaker box idea. This one I call a faker shaker. These are so easy to make and look like you spent a TON of time on them. You will need a clear envelope, a card base, and some sequins.

The card base in this card is the same as the first two. A tip for you… when ink smooshing a background make multiples! I do this to have card bases ready to go when I am card making. I used a Tim Holtz wallpaper as the base for my faker shaker. It’s 4X5.25″. This piece goes inside the clear envelope. And it could be anything! A stamped background. An ink blended background. Or like this one, pattern paper. Then you add your sequins and wrap the excess plastic envelope around the back. I used a cut file for this one. And the new Pink and Main scratch offs. Y’all these are SO fun to play with!!! You can hide your message behind them and the recipient gets to reveal it! Oh and the best part… Pink and Main made scratchers!!! Yep you can slide one into the envelope and the recipient doesn’t have to go searching for something to scratch with. How cool is that!?! They really thought of everything.

Here is a video of how I made the cards.
