Sending Super Hugs (Shaker Card)

A

Amanda Wilcox

Hello everyone! This is Amanda from Twiddler's Nook popping in today with a really fun card share featuring some MFT Stamps products that I just love! These Super Friend critters are just too cute and so fun to create with! I have had this Sending You Hugs die for a while and was excited to finally put it to use too!

To create this fun card, I started by inking up a panel with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, blueprint sketch and cracked pistachio. Once that was blended, I spritzed it with water. Then I came back and flicked some gold watercolor over the panel. I set it aside to dry before die cutting it with the sending you hugs die.

Next, I stamped a couple of the critters from Super Friends and colored them with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and went back to my background panel to create the shaker mechanism. For that, I trimmed down some acetate and adhered it to the back of the die cut area with scrappy tape. Then I lined the panel with thick foam tape, creating a well in the center for my shaker bits. I piled some Twiddler's Nook Wishing on Rainbow Stars confetti in the center of my white card base, removed the backing paper from the foam tape and adhered my panel to it. Voila! All sealed up and ready to shake, shake, shake!

I added foam squares to the back of the super friends and popped them in place. Then I took a sentiment from their set, stamped and heat embossed it in white. I trimmed that into a strip and popped it up with foam strips. This is when I remember those cute love speech bubbles that I had in my stash and thought they would be a great addition. So I die cut them from white cardstock, colored the hearts with red copics and glued them down with liquid glue.

Moving on to finishing touches, I simply added glossy accents to the koala's nose and lion's shirt emblem.

This card is so happy and so much fun too! Wouldn't you just smile pulling it out of an envelope? I sure would!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
