Hi Queen and Co fans! Rebecca
here with two new shaker cards made with the fabulous, fruity, Fruit Basket Shaker Kit. The fruit basket kit is perfect for making bright colored, summery cards.
The fresh, fun colors of the Mat Stack coordinate perfectly with the Toppings included in the kit. Combine these with bright colored cardstock and a few of the bright embellishments from the kit and you have a bright, happy card perfect for the summer.
But, you can continue to use the Fruit Basket kit into the fall too! The apple shaker is perfect for a teacher thank you!
Combine some of the red patterned papers from the Mat Stack with kraft or brown or other more muted colors to create an autumnal color palette. For a teacher card, you can cut a rectangular piece of black cardstock and make it look like a blackboard by stamping and heat embossing a white sentiment. Use antistatic powder before stamping in embossing ink and then do not wipe the powder away so that it looks like chalk dust!
Another tip for these shakers is to use the Twinkle Drops that are included as seeds. For the lemon, I placed the crystal Twinkle Drops on top of the acetate because when I cut a lemon the seeds are often sitting on top of the fruit. But for the apple, I placed the Black Twinkle Drops inside the shaker since they are technically within the core of the apple.
I have thoroughly enjoyed finding different ways to use all the elements of this fun kit!
Thanks for stopping by! I highly recommend checking it out!
