We have an exciting challenge at AAA Cards this week – CAS Shaker! That’s Clean and Simple AND a shaker. Quite a tough one in my opinion. As well as the 1st place $20 prize from our sponsor Stampendous, we’re also offering the winner the chance to be a Guest Designer for a future AAA Cards Challenge!!!
For my card I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Interactive Window Trio. This cuts three little squares with subtle stitching, but the windows remain a flap to lift up. I used my knife to trim them out, leaving three little windows for my shaker instead!
I then stamped my sentiment (Altenew Birthday Greetings) using my MISTI and Memento Dye Ink in Elderberry (stamped twice for a clear sharp image). I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles (the largest) to cut out the shaker front, and then some purple paper from my stash.
I added acetate to the back of the windows, and foam tape all around the inside, separating each of the windows with tape. I then added sequins in three different shades into each ‘compartment’ and placed the purple die cut piece over the top. Back it all onto a 110lb white card base et voila!
We hope you will join in with us all at the AAA Cards Challenge.
Remember to keep your cards CAS – that’s clean and simple – and have fun!!
