Fused Shaker Card with Embossed Vellum

Fused Shaker Card with Embossed Vellum


– [Kristina] Hi
everyone, Kristina here, welcome to another card video at my YouTube channel and blog. Today I’m going to be
creating a card based on one of my previous videos. I asked you guys on
Facebook, what cards you would love to see recreated,
and this is one of them. So the technique on this
one was using some vellum inside a fused
pocket shaker card. So I started out by
cutting some vellum to 4-1/2 by 4-1/2,
and then I’m using the Emma background
from Simon Says Stamp, and I’m going to stamp
this background onto the grid paper in my
Misti, and this is because I just wanted a
little bit more control over where the design ends up
on my piece of vellum. So I just stamped that,
cleaned off the stamp, and then brought in
the vellum square. So I’m coating that vellum
square with some powder tool because I’m going to
be embossing on it, and as you can see I
kind of see the image on the grid paper
through the vellum. So I’m positioning that so
that this design is centered, and then I inked up my stamp
with some VersaMark ink. Now I’ll swing the
door of the Misti over, and that’s going to put
that design exactly center onto my vellum square. When I pick it up it
pulls the vellum with it, and I’m able to use my finger, just to make sure everything
is stamped clearly. So I’ll peel that off and
then I’m going to apply some rich pill gold
embossing powder from WOW!. This is one of my favorite
gold embossing powders, I use it a ton, so
that’s why I have it in this plastic container here, that makes it just
easier to apply. So I hit that with
my heat tool until it was completely
melted, and you can see that beautiful gold
finish on that design. I just really love
how this turned out. So to make the
actual shaker card, I’m going to use my We R
Memory Keepers’ fuse tool, so I’m placing my vellum
square inside a pocket, a plastic pocket sleeve, and
then I’ll use my fuse tool and the ruler that
comes with the fuse tool to go around my vellum piece. So I am going to
seal off three edges, I’m gonna keep one
edge open so that I can fill it like a
pocket with some sequins. So I’m just putting
that fuse tool down, and I like to just
put a thick piece of cardstock
underneath my project, and that just helps
protect my work surface. So go ahead and fuse
that third side, and I just let my fuse
tool preheat, or heat up for quite awhile while I was
working on the rest of the card and then moved fairly quickly, but a little bit slower
to fuse those sides. So now we have those
three sides done, and I can fill my pocket
with some sequins. So I’m using a color
mix called Ocean from Little Things
from Lucy Abrams, and I just filled a few
of those sequins inside, and then I’m going to
fuse off that fourth edge, and that’s going to trap all
those sequins inside my card. So I’ll use my scissors
just to trim off the excess of that
protective sleeve, or that, what are,
I can’t remember what these are called, page
protectors, there we go. So I die-cut, the miss you
die from Simon Says Stamp, I die-cut that out of
some white cardstock, and then I use just a
little bit of adhesive, and I took some of the tack
off with my fingertips, and then placed all of those
words and letters on top so they would stick
down to the paper. This is just because
I’m going to be applying some VersaMark ink on top,
and I wanted the die-cuts to kind of stick
down to something, so they wouldn’t
stick to the ink pad. So I’m just placing those down, and then I can use
my VersaMark ink pad and just really press that down
onto each of these die-cuts. So I’m going to use
my tweezers to pick up the different
die-cuts and give them a nice coating of that
gold embossing powder, and I’ll use my heat
tool to heat-set that until it’s
smooth and melted, and while it’s still
hot, I’m gonna go ahead and dunk it back into more
of that embossing powder, and this is going to
give it a second coating of all of that embossing
powder, and give it a nice, clean, kind of thick
coating of embossing powder. So I did that with
all of the words. So that blue, kind of
water colored pieces that you see up in the corner, I was gonna use those but
then I decided not to, I thought I’d do something
a little different. So I’m taking three
different colors of Zig Clean Color
Real Brush markers, and I’m going to
create, sort of like an ombre background
color effect. So I started with
the darkest blue, coming in with more
of a bright blue, and then I’m going to finish
with more of a teal shade, and I’m just using a water brush to blend all of those
colors together. So I’m gonna add on
this more teal color, or an aqua shade,
and I’ll go ahead and use my water brush
to blend out that color, kind of have it
fade out to white, and I will use my heat
tool to help dry this. You could also just let
it air-dry if you’d like. So what I did with this
water colored piece, was I took a Heart Guy
from Simon Says Stamps, and nested hearts, and I cut
out the watercolor heart, and then also a
plain white heart, and you’ll see why I need
two here in a minute. So I used some Ranger
Multi Medium matte glue to apply little tiny
dots on the back of each of these words, and
then I pressed them down onto the colorful heart, the die-cut. I just use my tweezers to
help hold those die-cuts until they were in
the perfect position. So I’m gonna press that
down and I’m gonna put an acrylic block on top,
just to help hold that down while it dries onto the heart. So then I applied some foam
tape on the back of the heart, and I’m going to put
that directly onto the front of my
pocket shaker card, and I’ll just press that down. And basically the front
of the card is complete, but I do need somewhere to write
a message to the recipient, so I added some foam tape on
the back of that white heart, and put it directly on
the back of the card. So that is the card for
today, hope you guys enjoyed. If you want to see
the other versions, the ones that
inspired this card, it will be linked up
in the top corner. You can go check those
out, but I really love how this one turned out,
I love the blue and gold. Thank you so much
for watching today, I will be back on Monday
with another card video. Until then, thank
you for watching, and I’ll see you guys next time. (upbeat music)
