Hi friends! It's Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls. This means the hostess can choose any challenge she desires. Ina is this week's hostess, and she chose to have us CASE a designer. Love this challenge!
I love Jennifer McGuire's cards, so I chose to CASE one of her recent ones. This is the one I CASED. It what she called a Unique Shaker Card. I'll explain below.
What is unique about this shaker is that inside the shaker is a stacked die cut that the shaker bits have to go around instead of just falling to the bottom immediately. I started by using Pink Fresh's washi tape and coordinating die. I attached the washi tape to a piece of card stock and die cut it. I set the other pieces aside. I die cut it again four more times from white card stock and stacked those blank ones together. I also die cut the scalloped frame four times from white card stock and once from gold card stock. I stacked the white ones together. Before adhering the stacked frame to the card base, I inked it with pink and marigold inks. I adhered the stacked frame and die cut to the card base and added sequins, crystals, and hearts then adhered a piece of acetate cut to size. The gold frame was adhered on top as well as the washi die cut. The sentiment is also from Pink Fresh.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our guest this month, Fran Wing, on the JUGs blog. This is her last week with us, and I'd like to thank her for the beautiful cards she shared with us this month.
