Jaded Blossom December Release Blog Hop!!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Jaded Blossom's December Release Blog Hop.
Now if you're here from Mel's Blog then you're in the right place, if you're just passing through start at the beginning because you don't wanna miss anything. I also have the complete line up at the bottom.
If you missed my projects this week here is the highlight of it....
MONDAY 
TUESDAY  




I decided to make a fun set of shaker birthday cards!!


I used the masking technique to pick and choose parts of the Birthday Treat Tag stamps to use as sentiments on my cards.





I put together a quick little tutorial on how I put these together!! 

1. Start by cutting out the following layers with cutting machine:
- base (which you will stamp)
- acetate layer 
- top 'frame' layer



2. Using two sided foam tape (NOTE: make sure the width of your foam tape is smaller than the width of your top 'frame' layer, otherwise the tape will show after you assemble your shaker!) make an outline around the outside of the base layer. Make sure the tape pieces in the corners are perfectly flush to make sure no glitter/sequins can escape! 


 3. Once you have a border of foam tape around your base layer, peel the backing off the tape and carefully add the desired amount of sequins, etc inside the foam tape.



4. Adhere the acetate layer on top of the foam tape. 
TIP: If you are using fine glitter it may stick to the acetate due to static... One way around this is to use a dryer sheet and rub it over the acetate. I have never tried one, but I think an embossing buddy (from Stampin' Up) will work in the same way... 

5. Add your 'frame' as the final layer on your shaker. 


6. Shake and enjoy!! :)
