Hello everyone ! Lounon here !
It's time for the part 2 of my "One Hot Foil plate – 4 Designs – 8 Holidays cards" post.
Now, it's time to use the other pieces we put aside ! This week, it's all about shakers ! I will show you how to make 6 cards with two different designs.
Let's start with the wreath shaker card.
First, I die cut a stitched 3” x 6” onto purple cardstock. I cut a window frame on the middle. I used a stitched rectangle die but you can use anything, a craft knife works great too, just make sure your window is not bigger than the wreaths. I splattered gold inks on it and I put a piece of acetate behind the window.
I glued the three wreaths we die cut from the 'Tis the Season hot foil plate on it. And I glued my sentiment from the Gilded Holiday Greetings Hot Foil Plate on top of them. I added foam behind my panel around the window.
For the base of my card I cut a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" onto dark purple cardstock and I matted and layered it with a 3 1/4" x 6 /1/4" gold cardstock.
I put sequins on the middle and glued my front panel on it.
Finally , I added Meraki Gold Opal Gems on my card.
I will now show you how to make the second shaker designs. I made two cards with this design using the socks and the presents but you can make 4 more cards using the snowflakes, the bells, the baubles and the candy canes.
First, I foiled the Under the Mistletoe Hot Foil plate onto white cardstocks. I foiled it once with classical gold foil and once with sparkle gold foil. I inked my panels with purple inks.
After that, I used a 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" scalloped frame die 8 times : 2 onto gold cardstock and 6 onto thick cardstocks ( I used oat boxes).
I trimmed my foiled panel at 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and I glued three thick frames on them. I glued two pieces of acetate behind the gold frames. I put sequins on the foiled panels and closed them with the gold panels.
I matted and layered the shaker parts with 5 1/4" x 4" double stitched rectangles I cut onto dark purple cardstock.
Finally, I glued the socks , presents and sentiments from the Gilded Holiday Greetings sets EAP on them.
We almost use all the 'Tis the Season hot foil plate ! There are still three candies left ! A sweet idea : use them as big sequins on your shakers !
Et voilà ! You now have 8 foiled cards ready for the holidays !
May the craft be with you !
