3-D Felt Flower Shaker Card for the 2017 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master Challenge!! =)

Pin It

I'm here to share a Card I've made for the 2017 Card Design Superstar: Innovation Master!!
I WASN'T going to try out for this Challenge as I ALWAYS get SO NERVIOUS about trying to Compete as there are SO MANY AMAZING Designers out there, but the LONGER I thought about it the MORE I realized I just HAD to TRY!! Once I put the Nerves away, I had SO MANY Ideas for this Challenge!! I find I have MORE Ideas than Time to create them though!!
Does that happen to you!!??
If you're a Follower of mine you KNOW I LOVE LOVE LOVE to create Shaker/Interactive Cards!! So I just HAD to create one for this Challenge!!
I decided to create a 3-D Felt Flower Shaker Card!!
I started by Creating my own Patterned Background!! I wanted a Design that would be FUN, but would let the Flowers be the Focal!! So I Inked the Discontinued MFT On the Diagonal Stencil with some Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks to create a Distressed/Imperfect Card Base Design!! Then I added some Water Splatters to make the Design even more Distressed!! I wanted a Light Text Design so I used the MFT Typewriter Text Background Stamp and some of the MFT Grout Gray Hybrid Ink to Stamp on the Entire Card Base!! I wanted this layer to be Distress/Imperfect too, so after Inking up the Stamp I took a Baby Wipe and removed some of the Ink!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it looks in real Life!! For a Finishing touch I added some Black Diamond ColoriQue Ink Splatters!!
SQUEAL!! It makes e SO HAPPY!!  =)
I took the Stitched Circle Die from the MFT Die-Namics Shaker Flower Die Set and created the Shaker Window in my Card Base!! Then I Die Cut the Circle Ring Die from some Gray MFT Itsy Bitsy Polka Dot Patterned Paper!! It matches the Color of the Grout Gray Hybrid Ink I used along with the Text from the Patterned Paper I used for the Shaker Window!! I wanted some BEAUTIFUL Felt Flowers so I Die Cut my FAVORITE Die-Namics Stitched Flowers Dies from several different shades of Felt!! I also Die Cut the Flower from the MFT Die-Namics Shaker Flower Die Set from some White Felt!! I wanted 3-D Flowers so I Die Cut Several Layers!! A Sequin and Donut Bead was Sewn into the Center of each of the Flowers!! I used the same Sequins and Donut Beads for the Center of the Shaker Window!! To Finish off the Card I Die Cut a Tag from the MFT Die-Namics Tag Builder Blueprint 6 Die Set and Stamped and Embossed a Sentiment from the MFT Warm & Fuzzy Friends Stamp Set!! I REALLY LOVE to create Interactive Cards and I CAN'T WAIT to give this one to Someone SPECIAL!!   =)

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today!! I hope I've INSPIRED you to think OUTSIDE of the Box when it comes to creating a Shaker Card!! Maybe some BEAUTIFUL 3-D Felt Flowers will make a Debut on your Next Interactive Creation!!??
