Full Panel Shaker Card – WOW! FB Challenge – ‘Glitter & Glintz’ with a Lawn Fawnatics twist.

Hello lovelies,

This month’s challenge is to use Embossing Glitter or Glintz powders; I chose a glitter powder I had already got in my collection which I felt had been somewhat neglected up to now, so I decided to give it a starring role in this ‘somewhat’ extra full panel shaker card!

I wanted to use this new-to-me ‘happy’ die from Lawn Fawn, so I used my Versamark pad to emboss a panel of Neenah Solar White with Mermaid Tales embossing glitter from WOW!

Once the panel was fully covered and had cooled down I ran it through my Big Shot 3 times to give me 3 sparkly die cuts. I also embossed the word Birthday from another Lawn Fawn set

I created the full panel shaker element by cutting a sheet of acetate to 6 1/4in x 7 1/2in, scoring it at 1in from each edge; this gives me a finished card size of 4 1/4in x 5 1/2in with a 1in flap on every edge. I cut a panel of deep grey cardstock from Hobbycraft to be just a shade smaller than the given card size.

Using super strong double sided tape I attached the bottom flap and both side flaps to the cardstock. You should end up with a pocket, sealed on 3 sides, then before I sealed the top flap I tipped in a generous amount of silver stars.

I found that the best way to stick the glittered sentiments was to run them through my mini Xyron sticker maker, which adds a layer of strong glue to the back of the whole die cut. Then it was just a case of spacing each one out evenly; I started with the centre one, which makes it easier to then space out the others.

I ended up with a card that certainly packs a punch; it would definitely make an impression on whoever received it!!

It’s quite difficult to see in the photos, but that WOW! embossing glitter is so stunning! It’s a mix of blue & silver, with different sized flakes that gives such a gorgeous sparkle in real life.

This month’s Lawn Fawnatics challenge is ‘bring it back’ so I decided to use 2 elements from older Lawn Fawn sets: the ‘scripty happy’ die is chunky enough to hold it’s own when enrobed in this bold glitter, then I loved pairing it with this really simple ‘birthday’ from the Year 2 stamp set. I love pairing 2 contrasting fonts in my sentiments.

I love Lawn Fawn’s signature style and they are my go-to for scene building and cute cartoon characters/critters but I really wanted to step out of my own comfort zone and show how you can stretch those supplies to create a huge variety of cards that are suitable for anyone’s taste.

I really enjoyed challenging myself to stretch my supplies and once I started, I couldn’t stop, so I’ll definitely be adding a blog post on this soon.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
