Welcome to the Cheery Lynn Designs Shaker Card Kit New Release Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Ginny’s Blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
Be sure to hop through to the end and leave a comment on the post on the Cheery Lynn Desings blog answering one or more of the questions for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs.
Please humor me and try not to notice that the two projects I made would have photographed much better together if I had used the same gold cardstock (hanging head in shame). In my defense, they would never be seen together since one is a card and one is either a gift tag or holiday ornament. So much for planning ahead though….
I used non-adhesive foam to create my shaker piece and my adhesive of choice is glossy accents because it goes on in a really thin layer and you can get the glue right up to the edges without having excess squeeze out on to the acetate. Many different types of adhesive work for this, just experiment and see what works best for you. Cheery Lynn carries double-sided adhesive foam as well.
There is a great shaker card video tutorial on the Cheery Lynn Blog that will take you through the steps if you have not assembled one before.
I also colored the edges of the foam with a Krylon 18kt Gold Leafing Pen. Just be sure to ink the edges of the foam and set it aside to thoroughly dry. Learn from my mistakes! If you touch it before it dries, you will have gold on everything! I also tried coloring the foam edges with Copic markers and that works fine too if you need a different color. I just don’t like seeing the white foam.
The October Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim. Each monthly ribbon assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon. What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.
GIFT SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE!
Daisy is sporting a pretty double loop bow in her top knot that was quickly made on the Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool and the rubber band is incorporated right in the bow knot to save time.
