Create Gel Shaker Cards for your Ocean Scenes
Hey there my crafty friend! Today I’m sharing a fun interactive card using this adorable stamp called Subbing In by Ellen Hutson. I used a few different layers in this card and really made the layers stand out by using some leftover fun foam from a previous project.
All my images are stamped in Memento Black Ink and Stamped onto my Copic Xpress it Blending Card using my Misti, so I can get that perfectly crisp stamped image.
I took 2 card front sized pieces of cardstock and die cut a large and medium oval in the center. Then I sponged the 2 pieces of cardstock as well as the card base using Tumbled Glass, Chipped Sapphire and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks and my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Brushes.
Then I took a small zipped lock baggie and add a few pumps of dish soap into the baggie so I can have that gel, bubbly look. Once you are finished you’re going to line up the 2 oval pieces of cardstock so you know where to adhere your baggie on your card base. You will want to use some heavy scor-tape to keep your baggie in place.
After that you will layer your oval pieces using foam tap or some dimension between each layers. The, tuck and glue your sea critters between the layers.
