DT Clarinda - Romance

Hi Everyone!!
DT Clarinda here. *waves*  I just want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Denielle for posting my last two posts for me whilst I was away on vacation. I am back now and looking forward to being able to share lots of creations with you.

This months theme is romance, so I have created a lovely little shaker card for valentine' s day. 


This is a photo of the items I used to create the card.  I will make a list below.

Firstly I stamped the Gorjuss image onto some blending paper that I had cut to 10cm square and used copics to colour the image.



I then created the box frame using my scoring board and a piece of white card stock cut 11.5cm square. I cut in diagonally from the corners approx. 1 cm and scored two lines. Fold the card on the scoring lines and stick the image to the base of the frame (if it is a bit tight, just trim it down). 

Then add your shaker items, and cut a piece of acetate to fit on top and secure with double sided tape or glue.


Using a stanley knife and metal ruler, I cut out a frame from red card stock. This I embossed with hearts, rounded the corners and inked the edges. Attach on top of the acetate. I used a white and a pink Kirarina Wink pen to colour odd hearts to help them stand out a bit.



I then cut white cardstock to twice the length, scored and folded that, and rounded off the corners. Glue the frame to the white card being careful to line it up so the frame is sitting to the edge of the card.
Add ribbon around the edge to hide the gaps. Add greeting and flowers to suit.



Inside was very simple, I just layered a white die cut piece of card on top of a red die cut piece of card and stamped with a matching sentiment.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my creation. Below is a list of the products I have used. Many of these are available to purchase from Auzz Trinklets n Krafts or can be ordered in by Neha.

Thank you for visiting.
