Avocado Shaker Card

Good morning Kat Scrappiness fans!

It’s Lisa up on the blog today and I have a fun card featuring the

brand new You Guac My World stamp set!

I just love those cute avocados and they can really be used for so

many different themed cards!

I used quite a few Kat Scrappiness products on this card.

Here’s how I put it together:

To begin with I made a square card base from kraft card stock

and I embossed the front with a heart embossing folder.

Next I took the largest Stitched Scalloped Heart Die and die

cut it out of white card stock. Since I wanted to make a shaker

element out of the heart I used a smaller Layered Nested Heart Die

to cut a smaller heart shape out of the layered heart.

Once I had the middle heart cut out, I layered acetate over the

heart shaped opening on the back of the scalloped heart.

I then used foam tape around the heart shaped opening to make

a well to put my shaker bits into.

I used the Sparkling Wintergreen Sequins and the

Mirrored Clear Solid Heart Confetti to fill my shaker window.

Once the shaker was full I backed the heart with some light green

patterned paper from the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham

paper pack. Once I glued the shaker element down,  I layered the

2 cute avocados on the bottom right of the heart that I had previously

colored with my Copic markers and cut out on my Scan n Cut machine.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and I stamped it onto black card stock

 using Versamark clear ink and then heat embossed it with

 Brutus Monroe alabaster embossing powder.

I have tried MANY MANY white embossing powder brands in the past

and this one is the first one to give me a bright white finish without

fading away while heating it with my heat gun.

It’s definitely my new favorite white embossing powder!

Once the sentiment was embossed and cooled off, I cut it out

using a die from the Stitched Fishtail Banner Dies.


Speaking of favorites, Kat Scrappiness just released their own

Metal Die Snips to cut apart your dies that come wired together.

They cut like butter and they have a flat edge that lets you cut right up

close to the die so it doesn’t leave any sharp edges.  They make clipping your

dies apart a breeze! Make sure to check them out in the shop today!

Here’s a picture of all the supplies I used on my shaker card today.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I really had fun making this card,

shakers are my favorite type of card to make and I just adore

those cute avocados from the new You Guac My World stamp set!
