Hi there! Lea here today with a couple of really fun cards to share with you!! I used the Just Sayin' collection, & combined it with some goodies from some of the Jubilee collections.
Supplies: Just Sayin'- Belong 12x12 paper, 6x6 paper pad, decorative brads, transparent frames, alpha word sticker sheets, enamel dots; Jubilee "Tangerine" - transparent frames, rub-ons; Jubilee "Sherbet" - chipboard elements; Other - pink cardstock, ivory twine, sequins.
The transparent frames that My Mind's Eye offered with these latest collections are SO cool! They work great as photo overlays, but what do you do with them as a card maker?
Well, I would daresay a lot, but one thing that they are PERFECT for are shaker cards! Shaker cards have taken the card world by storm this year! They are a huge trend, and you normally see them with just transparent openings.
I love the fact that the MME transparency frames have prints & patterns on them. The sequins still show through perfectly, and the print just adds that much more to them!
For the first card I used a chipboard Polaroid frame to create my shaker. I filled it full of gold stars, which complimented the theme of the sentiment! The sentiment came from one of the awesome transparency frames from the Jubilee "Tangerine" collection.That is one of my FAVE sentiments, & I love how perfectly it fit here.
For my second card I punched a circle from patterned paper to create the shaker window, and then covered it with a lightly patterned transparency frame from the Just Sayin' collection. I filled it with gold heart sequins, & then embellished around the frame as shown.
The sentiment was created right above the shaker piece using rub-ons & letter stickers. Shaker cards are really easy to make! All you need to create is a window of some sort, and then cover the window with a transparent sheet. Like I said above, the MME transparent frames are perfect for this!
Then you need to apply strips of foam adhesive all around the window opening so none of the sequins can fall out! Pour your sequins on the card front in the area where the window will be, then adhere that window piece over top of them. Then just shake it up to loosen them from the middle of the window, so that they fall along the edges of it.
Thanks so much for checking out my cards today! I hope you enjoyed how I used the MME transparent frames, and I hope you will try it out as well! Have a great day!
