For Christmas, let’s make a shaker ATC. Here is my example:
You will need:
- 2 pieces of cardstock, measuring 2,5" x 3,5"
- 1 piece of acetate, measuring 2,5" x 3,5"
- Small Christmas tree stamp
- Imageof your choice (I recycled mine from a catalog)
- Polar White Flower Soft
- 3D foam adhesive (continuous, or row of squares)
- Regular double-sided tape
- On the background cardstock, stamp the tree. If the background is white, colo rit a little, using coloring pencils or watercolor.
- Cut out the chosen image. If it’s too thin, line it with a piece of cardstock. It will need to be mounted on foam tape.
- Glue the image to the background, giving it a little dimension. Make sure the foam square is thin enough to allow the “window” and frame to fit over it.
- Cut out a frame in the second piece of cardstock (base your measurements on the image and overall background).
- On the background, run a continuous piece of double sided foam adhesive on all four sides – again, that foam adhesive need to be slightly thicker that the one used to adhere the image. Also ensure that the tape is no wider than the frame you have cut.
- Spinkle some Polar White Flower Soft on the background, around the image.
- Remove the foam tape backing and adhere the acetate « window ».
