Wish Big Monster Shaker Card

Wish Big Monster Shaker Card
Made this card for my best friend whose birthday is coming next month. But since she is in Singapore, I need to get the present and this card posted early so that it will arrive on time for her birthday.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 299 (MFTWSC299)
For this card, I am adopting MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 299 (MFTWSC299) as shown above and it is just perfect for challenge hosted by CAS-ual Fridays CFC157 - Shaker Card. I must admit that those confetti inside the shaker shape just remind me of party as challenge hosted by Cute Cards Thursday Challenge 444 - Party Time!

Close-up: The shaker circle
First, I die cut a white circle as the shaker base and also to stamp my image on. Then, I die cut a same size circle of acetate. Using a smaller circle die with the circle die I used to die cut the shaker base, I create a frame out of both circle dies so that I will have a rim/ring to build the shaker depth by die cutting from foam. In fact, I die cut two foam rim/ring so that I have the depth I needed. I also die cut a gold rim/ring to be attached at the most top layer of the shaker as decorative rim/ring to cover up every else (mostly ugly things) behind it. By this time, I did wish that I have Lawn Fawn Stitched Frame as die cut the frame by pairing two (2) sizes of circle dies together really do have its challenge.

Close-up: The sentiment and monster
The next thing I do is stamp the monster image and sentiment onto the white circle shaker base and color the monster with Copic markers. After coloring the monster, I give her some uniqueness by adding some mini spots under its horns as well as her webbed feet. With those mini spots, she just look different! More shimmer is added to her body as it is after all a birthday celebration and for me, needs lots of shine. :P

Wish Big Monster Shaker Card - after it was shake
Then, it is time to assemble the shaker together. I use double sided tape as my medium instead of liquid glue as it is more manageable with double sided tape but it took some times as I need to peel shorter length of the tape due to the curvy of circle. I use some glitter confetti and gold steel ball bead nail art decoration as shaker elements.

Close-up: The panel - recycling from another project
As for the panel, I re-use leftover of masked stencil piece from this card. After the masked stencil piece is trimmed to size, it is attached onto a green card base as in sketch follow by the the shaker circle.
