Simple Elephant Shaker Valentine


Today I'm featuring this set from from My Favourite Things, I showed in my recent unboxing video. Something about these Adorable Elephants just get me, they are all I want to use this week! This also proves how versatile they can be as my last card was completely different.

I used my new Hampton Art Stamp Perfect tool and that was awesome! I love being able to stamp in the same spot over again to get perfect images.

Elephant: N0, N2, N4, E02
Butterflies/Balloons: Y11, Y13, Y15, G00, BG13, BG15, 
V04, V12, V15, RV21, RV04

I prefer to buy my Copics in sets, that way I know the colours coordinate; otherwise I find them overwhelming to buy. So after I stamped all my images I coloured them with the markers listed above. Then I fussy cut my balloons.

I wanted my balloons to wiggle a little bit but stay upright so after sticking them together with a touch of foam tape, I taped some clear acrylic thread to the back. This is available at your local sewing shop. Wrap each end of the thread around the back and tape it, to hold in place. You want them to be a little loose to keep movement.

The frame is die cut from WPlus9 Sunshine Layers, another favourite. After two layers of foam tape around the edge, you are ready for your shaker bits and to glue down your background.

I put the whole shaker piece on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" top folding note card. Lastly I pulled my sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Love N' Breakfast set and heat embossed it in Rangers White Embossing Powder on a strip of black.

You could glue your balloons down instead and this would be a super simple shaker card, but I enjoy the movement of them inside.
