Visible Image - Balloon Shaker Card


Hello peeps!  I recently made a shaker card for the Visible Image new release launch, so I thought I'd make another for my Design Team post.  One of the things I learned from my last shaker card was to ensure enough depth between the acetate and the card base to allow the sequins/beads to move around.

So, having bought some thicker foam tape, off I set with this version.

For the background, using the Birthday Balloons die set, I diecut some balloon shapes from copy paper to use as masks, and sponged Distress Oxides through, using one mask per colour.  This would have worked equally well by using the Birthday Balloons stamps and just stamping the balloons, but I wanted to do it my way!

Once all the balloons were sponged, I stamped some stars as fillers.

Then I set about creating the acetate frame. 

I edged the acetate with washi tape, then mitred the corners with a craft knife.

Then removed the excess triangle from each end of the washi tape.

A layer of thick foam tape went onto the back of the acetate, covered up by the washi on the front.  You can see I've also stamped the sentiment in the centre of the panel.

Then out came the sequin box.

Once it was all stuck in place I gave it a shuffle to make sure it all worked!

Pop on over to the Visible Image store for this set and many more!
