Learn How To Make A Raindrop Theme Shaker Card

I love a versatile tool and the Dewlet die is just that. The perfect little (but not too little) teardrop for petals, leaves, raindrops, balloons, and whatever else you think of. In this card, I’ve used the die as a stencil to draw out a pattern as well as a die to cut out shapes in that pattern. And that simple repeating pattern gets jazzed up with pen detailing, glitter, and a couple of shaker windows, too.

If you get the blues being away from friends and family, this is a sweet card to say how much you miss them. Change up the color scheme or sentiment, though, and it could easily be a baby or wedding shower card. Add some flowers and you’ve got an April Showers card. All from a simple repeating background and a few well-chosen embellishments.

How to Make a Raw Silk Texture and a Simple Card

How to Make a Raw Silk Texture and a Simple Card

Raw Silk is a very popular and beautiful textile made in India and is considered very pure and sacred. I wanted to create a card with a raw silk effect with inks and for that a mix of Memento and Brilliance inks were perfect. The background is simple to create and can be made in any color. To finish the card, I simply stamped the florals with Versafine Onyx Black and the flowers and contrasting red sentiment reading “Sending Love & Hugs” stand out beautifully against the gorgeous silky background.
